A second visit. We went out of our way to return. The pistachio ice cream is like no other. A fantastic range of flavours and all made on site. You can either just have a small amount or make more of an event and have larger ice cream deserts with drinks from the bar or coffees. Suitable for all ages... More

This is in a residential area and packed out with locals. As you go through the door you see so many cups, awards, certificates and photos of famous visitors.

If you like ice cream and are in the area, then DO NOT miss this little treasure of an ice cream parlour. All home made and winner of many awards it is a little treat at the end of a hot day sightseeing! Try the pinoli (pine nut) flavour for something a little different.

This chef has won many awards for his gelato, and with very good reason. Not only are the basic ingredients fresh.....the eggs, cream, honey, etc., they add seasonal berries, cherries, and strawberries when possible. The owner, whom we were lucky to meet and talk to, creates new recipes all the time and travels the world to Italian festivals to bring... More

Description
They claim to be the no 1 ice cream maker in Italy, and I tend to agree. The guy running the place has won all prices possible.
