This is right around the corner from the Una Scandanavia where I was stayed, very good gelato. I got the strawberry and chocolate and both were good. There are many choices for the chocolate and the signs weren't in English so I couldn't tell the...More

Absolutely fantastic gelateria, tucked away on a quiet residential street, not far from Corso Sempione. There are plenty of flavors to choose from, all of which are incredibly rich. The Cioccolato Azteco is a spicy chocolate option. My personal favorite is the Mandorle, or Almond...More

Excellent ice-cream, especially the chocolate variations such as ORO PURO and GIANDUIA. Try the coconut and raspberry. A must-try gelato for locals and tourists. Check the perfume and diffusers store that is also amazing!

Late-night gelato at its finest! This place had 10 different varieties of chocolate gelato, with handy descriptions written out on the counter saying what was in each one. My husband ordered the Jamaican, which had rum in it, and wow- did it pack a punch!...More

The ice cream shop Il Massimo del Gelato, was born in Milan in 2001. Unlike other ice cream shops that love to surprise and study extravagant tastes, tastes are without exaggeration, the attention is paid only to the quality. We like to show our customers the freshness of our raw materials by placing fruit boxes at the entrance. Every day we choose carefully the best ingredients and we create an ice cream able to rediscover the pleasure of a color, a perfume, a texture and a forgotten taste. The Maestro Gelatiere Massimo Travani offers a unique collection of chocolate ice cream in Milan: 100% cocoa, Criollo, Domori Venezuelan to 75%, with chili, with cinnamon, stuffed with candied orange and Grand Marnier and many other original creations made from chocolate . Products of the shop: homemade ice cream, granita (ice and pure fresh fruits), cakes and cold pastry.
