Can't remember having tried a better ice cream!! Super creamy and rich flavour. The biscuit could be better. Recommend to take the cup instead.

I'm not an expert, but in my three week gelati crawl of a holiday, this had the best nocciola I've found. Staff were pleasant and helpful with picking flavours
