I got the nocciola and cremino, and I'd highly recommend this combo! I also tried the Violetta and loved it too, but it was lighter and I was feeling like indulging my sweet tooth with the hazelnut combo. Definitely would recommend!

Take a break from the sun and wander through the shaded narrow streets until you find this gem! You will not find better service or gelato anywhere else in Genoa. Try some of the offbeat flavours, like ginger :D

We have been eating gelato in different places for three days now. This place is the best. We had 9 flavors and they were all excellent. Unique flavors like violet and Rosemary were fantastic but the standards, like chocolate were also outstanding
