Ranging from the very rich and creamy concoctions to fruit sorbets. A few tables out on the pavement . The road isn't too busy so you can continue an evening walk with the ice cream.Extensive opening hours

You won't be sorry. We ordered piccolo size, servings were very generous & you could have two flavours. I had limone & vignilia (lemon & vanilla) & Cremino Guglielmo (espresso with choc chunks). Creamy & delicious, I didn't want the taste experience to end. If staying longer I'd have gone back again!

This is by far some of the best ice cream in Bologna (and I have seriously tried a lot) I particuarly reccomend their fruit flavours, or my particular favourite - zamboni.

Around a dozen flavours upon my visit in January. Staffs speaks English. Good size portions for Italia. Gelati could be a bit colder. Would certainly melt before reaching the door if in Summer

Portion size ok. Around one dozen flavours. Could be colder. In summer it would melt before crossing the door.

Came out of lunch next door and decided to treat myself for some gelato. And very nice it was, too, in fact some of the best I've had anywhere. :)

The bitter chocolate is dark and brooding and just a gorgeous flavour! Do yourself favour and try it. We did, twice in 2 days !

After reading other posts saying that this was the best gelato in the WORLD my boyfriend and I drove an hour hour out of our way to give La Sorbetteria Castiglione a try. We were not disappointed. Great customer service and top quality ingredients made this a wonderful treat.

I quite disagree with the last review describing the pistachio as without texture or flavor. In fact, I asked them what do they recommend and I was just lucky to get the pistachio flavor. I think it is one of the best places for this type. Recommended.
