Sometimes great places fade. Not this one. We tried chocolate and baci. Chocolate lovers, you will find your match. This one packs a punch! Baci is on the softer side but right where you want it. Friendly service and friendly prices make this one a must try.

I have stayed in Verbania multiple times and have tried gelato from many places. However, this one is my favorite! I am a huge fan of cannella (or cinnamon)!

Decided to follow some very happy looking people with big ice cream cones into a back alley, and was rewarded with a big selection of flavours, some quite unusual. Went for the Lemon-Basil and Caramellised Chestnut, and did not regret it - great quality for the usual fair prices around Lago Maggiore. Big recommendation.

This is tucked away down the small side streets. But always busy. Right up to closing time 11pm!! Delicious ice creams. Lots of flavours

The gelateria d'altri tempi is amazing. The quality is incredible and the tastes, especially fruits very natural. The service unbeatable. I am there quite often and never was disappointed on the contrary. Just go and test yourself

Definitely a must if you are in the area. No real preferences, all ice cream sampled was simply a taste of heaven! Pity we're on our way home tomorrow.

Takes a while to find but you kind of feel really rewarded at end. You will really wish you had one of these near you back home (or maybe for your waist line is good you don't). There are just to many flavours to want to taste- trifle, panna cotta, tiramisu, fresh cinnamon just the ones i remembered. We all... More

This is the best Italian Ice Cream I ever had in my life. And I am italian! The place is very hard to find, is in the heart of Intra, in a small lateral road, but you can ask and everyone will give you the directions. The Ice Cream is pure heaven! My favourite are Nutella and Tiramisu... Of course... More
