Definitely number one pistachio gelato I have ever had. Hubby very much liked his chocolate but agreed that the pistachio was truly special. Even after having numerous other gelatos during our two week stay in Italy, I have to say this was our favorite place. Should have gone back (line too long by the one near the two towers) but...

You must not miss this ice cream palour, which is very close to the twin towers! It is very popular with students and although very busy, the queue moves very quickly. There are so many different flavours that you will find it very difficult to choose and the price is very reasonable. Highly recommended!

For five days we have tried many different tastes and we loved all of them. This place has a top location and a magnificent view towards the two towers. The prices are better compared to those of other gelateria shops near piazza Maggiore. The people from the Tourist Information Office recommended us Gelateria Gianni and we definitely did not regret... More

There are so many flavours, many of which are seasonal, that it was difficult to choose. We ended up getting the dark chocolate and coffee flavours, our favourites. The gelato was very good - creamy and full of flavour.

Hopping gelateria right in the heart of things. Good selection of seasonal gelati. We enjoyed the "inferno".

Worth the calories! The guy at the counter looks like the original owner. Was surprised to see many branches of this gelateria throughout the city.

You can find more than one shop around the city of Bologna. Their flavours are amazing , which makes it difficult to pick just one! (Even though you can make it 2 or 3 different flavours) Prices are quite fair compared to ice creams anywhere else in the world. Plus this is GOOD ice cream! It was 3 € for... More
