Forget all the glitzy ice cream shops with pretty looking displays of ice cream bought in from elsewhere. These guys make their own on the premises. Sadly didn't have time to try all the flavours, but the ones we did were stunning.

As most places in this area they have an fantastic pistachio gelato, but the real winner for me is theire Crema Mediterranea. Almonds, pine, pistachios... the best ice cream I´ve ever eaten. Their Salt Caramel is also an beatiful peace of gelato art.

This one should be visited more than once - so hard to decide The regular ice cream and sorbet sound so good, but we opted for pistachio granita and three other flavours. Granita was refreshing, bursting of flavours - 100% recommendation

The taste, the texture, the smell. This gelato was fantastic! It was not too frozen as it often is and the flavours were rich but not overly so.

Thank Halle B
