You buy 8 scoops...and the portions get smaller and smaller. The third portion of 3 scoops was empty in the middle...As I noticed that - I told the ladies serving the gelato. The more senior one told me "that's normal" - WTF? and just another (much bigger) portion of the same flavours with a sour face in front of me...pretty much ruined the experience.

Nevertheless, the gelato ist just superb! The chocolate is like mousse au chocolat, the pine nut and honey...and the amarena, but also the vegan banana and the lemon, the dark chocolate....somehow, all flavours are just AMAZING.

Hope net time the usual servers are there and not the not so nice one...

If you are in the mood for extreme ice cream, this is the place. The forest fruits cup was incredible, so fresh and tasty. Sunday is a busy day for this Eiscafe.

I was drawn in by the various flavors of gelato that filled a glass case, but what really caught my eye was the fresh apple strudel that was advertised above the register. I ordered it with vanilla sauce and a scoop of ice cream and it was absolutely fantastic. The restaurant itself was very clean and inviting and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, do not hesitate to check this place out.

Here in this awesome café right on the Hauptstrasse, I've eaten the best freaking ice cream I've ever had. The patrons are super friendly. And the secret: do try the pistachio ice cream, it's undescribably good.

This place is owned by Italians, so you know you're going to get a good product. They have amazing flavors and they are all delicious. My favorites were the Pistachio and the Ferrero. We were only in town for 2 days, but we went back 4 times. If you go to Heidelberg, you must check this place out. The prices were very good as well.
