This place only has vegan gelato, so there's no need to restrict yourself to certain flavours. Made for a refreshing treat on a warm day.

Exquisite ice cream, light ingredients mixed to perfection embody surprisingly intense tastes, well-chosen spices adding just the touch of "je ne sais quoi" that keeps one coming back to try more of their deliciously vegan creations...

This gelateria is very special due to the fact that stevia and rice milk are the base for their products! In other words it is indeed the icecream for friends since everybody can eat it - no issues with diabetes or lactose intolerance. It is amazing what great taste they manage to achieve though. Please try it out and spread... More

The owner was super friendly & let us try 5 or 6 flavors before we actually decided (and gave us an extra scoop at the end :) ). The icecream is very tasty & it's vegan - but we would never have guessed it; it's so creamy. Would definitely come back again.

What definitely stood out in Torino is the amount of gelaterie (ice cream parlours). They are EVERYWHERE! While we were there in march and the weather was a bit cold for an ice cream, seeing a gelateria at every street corner really makes you crave ice cream!

Great ice cream parlour providing plenty of interesting choice of ice cream for everyone. Sugar free but with no artificial ingredients - so it's not going to pile on the pounds - the ice cream tastes wonderful. You can sit inside or stroll to the nearby park to enjoy your ice cream in the sun.

The icecream was the best I have ever had! I can't wait to return! I wish they had a place to sit outside, but that is really not a big deal. Lovely flavours, like lemon and sage. My favourite is the pistacchio and almond. Superfriendly staff!
