Very average ice cream. Inside not a real Italian feel. Later we had a much better ice cream at 'a minute by tuk tuk' at the old hospital.

Ordered a cookie ice cream with the preconceived notion that it would be a thick slab of ice cream stacked between two cookies of similar sizes. Given two thin cookies which were way larger than the ice-cream itself, hence squashing and absorbing it.

So nice there was always a queue. Each scoop was 250 rupees and for once on this island there was no tax/service charge add-ons.

We really enjoyed sitting down with a cold icream on a hot day. The staff were about to close because of a power cut so we arrived just in time before all the icecream melted.

After wandering through the streets of the fort and feeling hot and flustered happened to chance upon this little gem. Ice cream to die for and lovely and cool inside. Well worth a visit

Our kids are bleeding hearts, as are we, for cats and dogs. They fed a sweet cat Milk and had great Gelatto. My husband got a Banana Split with Pistachio, Hazelnut and Chocolate. He LOVED it.

Stopped off for Gelato which was really tasty, but found it to be on the expensive side. Ladies there seemed like they couldn't really be bothered to work. And when asked about the flavours wanted to continue talking to each other instead. We sat outside on the beaches it was a nice break from walking around and kids loved it.
