You need to try the cioccolato extra fondente! Mouth watering. The service was a bit abrupt last time I was there, but who cares for an amazing take away ice cream!

Superb quality, helpful staff, reasonable prices. Look no further. It's a pity they don't do coffee and other desserts with a better seating area.
