Although this gelateria gets alot of praise, it can't compare to Funivia. Their pistachio just doesn't have the texture or flavor.

Absolutely wonderful ice cream and sorbets plus other goodies made on the premises to bring back for presents. Well worth the walk down to visit - we combined it with a walk round the park first as we fancied a bit of green space. Ice cream making is treated like a science.

Great gelato and friendly staff. I'm a fan of classic flavours such as Nocciola and Cioccolato. Gianduia also tastes good with those two. I'm sooooo happy they have gluten free cones. Nice seating area.

Best gelato I've taste in my last trip to Italy. It was so difficult to choose the flavours but the result was so good. Hard to explain in word. If you are visiting Bologna, we should definetely go here!

This is the best gelato we have eaten throughout our trip in Italy. It is fresh and the flavors are delicious. You gotta give it a try! I particularly liked their special flavors!

I cannot recommend this venue highly enough for the best tasting dark chocolate ice cream I have ever tasted in my many decades of life in search of the perfect ice cream! The potions are generous. It is worth the trek from main city centre to find this vendor of ice cream excellence. I shall return to Bologna if not... More

So many delicious flavours but they are all unique and fabulous. Lots of interesting mixes like caramelised hazelnuts salted pistachio. It's about a 15 minute walk out of the town but well worth it.
