Family of four, this is our favourite gelateria in Alghero. Kids ask to return to this place every night, and I recommend you try the cocomio which is like a gelatoversion of the bounty chocolate. It's a combination of stracciatella and coco, which gives it an awsome texture and taste. Perfect if combined with chocolate. 2 Euro for the small... More

Visited this gelateria every evening we had in Alghero, and never ran out of new flavours to try!! Particular favourite was th dark chocolate sorbet. Incredible collection of sorbets as well as the standard ice cream flavours and some novel ones too! Great cones too. Lovely staff and great service. Located in a nice location so you can get the...

We tried six flavors in all, all of them excellent (of the few places we tested in the old town, this was consistently the best) Both of us agreed that the extra dark chocolate was probably one of the best gelatos ever!

Great spot but more importantly excellent gelati, wide range of flavours, yummy! Bonus was eating it sitting on the Seawall opposite listening to the guitarist. Priceless!

We went to this gelateria on the first day of our trip in Alghero and the huge amount of flavours were excelent. After that we tried couple of others but in the end we returned to the il bastione. On our last day of the trip we were as usual sitting in front of the il bastione and forgot our... More

Just back from my 4th trip to Alghero and Gelateria i Bastioni is still the best in my opinion. It's my go-to for gelato. The 'extra-dark chocolate/fondente' is my absolute favorite and I will dream of it until I return. But my other high-rankers are their coconut (almost like coconute paste because it's chock full of real coconut!), the fantastic... More

wow, the icecream at I Bastioni was paradise! To be fair I entered the place sure it would be a tourist trap: a little shop located right on the seafront in the old town sounded a little suspicious... instead we entered and the owner was super cool, giving us small tastes of various flavors to help us choosing. I went... More

the ice cream was really good and the price really affordable considering it was sul lungomare (walk along the sea view) and in the town centre
