I was skeptical at first, but the ice cream was unbelievable. It felt like eating the ingredients wrapped in ice milk. The pear flavor was inbelievable, so fresh. Pomegraine and caramel also made my list

I used to rate Mua Ice Cream as the best ice cream in town but Girandola is much better in terms of creativity of its menu and freshness of ingredients. I love ice cream versions of traditional Turkish sweets like Güllaç or Kazandibi. My favorite...More
