The best gelato I have ever tasted. There are lots of flavors and you can taste them before deciding. The ingredients are also written so you can choose a healthy one. My favorites were pistachio and almonds.The staff is very friendly. It is closed on Tuesday so try it the other days of the week.

We had nocciola, pistaccio and melone gelato. They were all good, with a natural feeling, but not the best gelato in Polignano. A bit expensive. Also they had some issues with the lights in the restroom, so that got me a little bit nervous about the general experience :) but I bet they will fix it! The cakes looked great... More

On holidays you think why not let's have some extra things to eat. This can be a bad thing ! But not with the gelato here it is great , we have now been three times and trying different flavours each time, none have disappointed and for the quality it is really well priced compared to others we have had....

Nice but not stunning... Though the coffee flavor was delicious... Friendly staff but with poor English, so it is difficult to communicate

If you love gelato (my wife is a specialist...) this is worth the search. In our books Caruso rivals Gelateria Dondoli in San Gimignano. If you know Dondoli, you will understand.

When I saw Gusto Caruso in TripAdviser I really dont recognize it is icecream paradise. Whatever you choice you will be satisfy even waffles. Staff is very friendly. Location is very central. Value for price.

The ice-cream is absolutely one of the best I have ever had. The flavours are not the usual ones, e.g. plain chocolate, lemon, strawberry, .. You'll find lime basil & cardamom; figs & ricotta cheese; maracuja & guava; and many more: mouth-watering !

If you want to taste the best ice cream in the world, you must visit Caruso. The ice cream is 100% natural and homemade, eating is a pleasure for the senses. The homemade cone is a must.

After trying the Mascarpone Datteri e Rum on the first night of our stay in Palignano a Mare, there was no holding back for every night after dinner. Our family of 6 managed to try and taste all of the flavours and all were delicious. It's busy but the line moves fast as the friendly staff move through the orders... More
