We stopped here for some coffee and the fragrance of the freshly baked brioche tempted us to try one. It was delicious! The lady in the shop was very friendly and switched effortlessly to English when she heard us talking in the language. We were...then tempted to buy some of the home made cookies which looked really good. We opened the packet when we got back to the hotel and they were so good that we finished them all! So of course we drove past the shop on our way to the airport and bought two packets of these delicious cookies to take back with us! Definitely a visit worth and not just for the ice cream (which we didn't try since it was a bit too cold for it).More

Nice spot for an ice cream and a coffee. Lots of flavours to choose from and great quality ice cream. Lovely looking cakes in the cabinet too

This gelataria is on the square in Barga. We went twice- once is certainly not enough, and the flavours available- try hazelnut or the lemon, the bi lingual Italian- Scots service, and the buzz inside and outside was great to see. Good value for money...too, but who cares about money when you can enjoy the ice cream!More

Excellent ICE cream. If you are lucky you may get a server with a nice Scottish accent. Have tried most flavors and all are excellent.

It's got to be the best gelato I've had so far, the second visit was well worth it. A visit is a must if you're local!

The icecream is made on the premises from the base ingredients, milk, fruit, eggs, etc. The lady there speaks perfect English and perfect Italian: una italo-scozzese, so typical of Barga...

more or less at the same time last year appeared TEOBROMA (in Barga Vecchia) and GELATERIA GIARDINO. they are both excellent and I dont understand how the town had survived all these years without them; Il Giardino is a bit less pricey, yet very very...good. they have a few tables and they do make coffee as well!

Fabulous ice cream, beautiful location. Lady in shop spoke fluent English. Like English fluent! You have to try their ice cream. Lovely moment enhanced with free Wi-fi

This was recommended to me by a resident. During a week's visit we sampled many flavours all of which were nothing less than excellent. Highly recommended are prickly pear, hazelnut, luglio, stracciatelli and the choc/hazelnut. As the Michelin Guide says, Worth a Detour.

During our week in Italy we tried many gelateria's.This one is by far the best. We took a half hour detour to taste the dilicious ice cream once more.
