One of my favorite activities while traveling in Italy is sampling gelato. I have my favorite places in each city I have visited. This is the one for Bari. Be sure to try the pistachio!

The chocolate gelato here tastes like perfect cold chocolate pudding, and comes adorned with a tiny cone like a unicorn hat. They also have espresso and espresso ice cream, which if you haven’t had, is a delicious treat.

As a Gelato lover, I always seek best places when I can have good ice-cream and this place is the one to go. The texture is just right, ice-cream full of flavour - not too sweet, not too bitter, not too sour: just perfect.

Small restaurant with tables on pavement. Very friendly and welcoming staff and a good selection of food and drink for such a bijou setting. And the best cassation. Ever.

had a mandorle (almond) and pistachio cone - absolutely delicious. and they stuck a little cone on the top! it's clear why it's considered the best gelato in Bari.

This is absolutely one of the best ice creams I've ever eaten! Although we were in Bari in December and the wind was freezing on that particular day, this ice cream was worth all the "suffering", as the taste and flavours were irresistible. It's a...More
