The gelato was so cold, so thick, so creamy..... just right. I chose fruit flavors - raspberry and cantaloupe - so perfect in color too! My husband had a scoop of both rich deep chocolate and a coffee flavor - he was raving. A small place, charming, just off, well behind, the beaten path. Try their homemade chocolates too!
Nothing like the perfect snack on a hot summer day!!!

Had the most beautiful gelato here and could have had another three straightway. The woman behind the counter was helpful and gave great recommendations. I ended up going for spicy chocolate, nocciola and pistachio. Yum!

I had the chance to visit the shop located in via Pinturicchio (near the University for Foreigners) so my note concerns only that shop, not the other in via Bonazzi, that I had not the chance to visit. The shop specialises in chocolates and ice cream, and it is really worth a visit ! Several different types of chocolate pralines and bars are available (some types of bars are actually the size of a tablet computer) with delicious filling: tangerine, pistachio, hazelnuts - you name it. The lady running the shop also explained the production process starting from cocoa trees to the finished product, which shows her passion for her products ! Needless to say, the chocolates we bought disappeared in the blink of an eye once they reached home.

We originally went to Cioccolateria Augusta Perusia to buy some chocolates as a gift for friends, but the gelato was just too tempting to pass up. I had a cone with cioccolato fondente and cassata, and my wife had one with cioccolato-amarena (chocolate-cherry) and lemon. The flavors were all incredible! Possibly the best chocolate gelato we have ever tasted. The shop in Via Bonazzi, which is a narrow street which parallels Corso Vannucci (the main walking street in Centro Perugia) is most convenient for visitors to Perugia. The other shop is near the Universita Per Stranieri and the Arco Etrusco and is not as convenient for those visiting the historic center of Perugia.

This gelateria is also cioccolateria, the sign says all products made in house, so I had some expectation to the fullness of the taste of the chocolate ice cream. I was not disappointed. And the other ice cream types we had were just as wow. If we ever go back to Perugia we'll revisit.
