A queue outside tells you that this is something good. We spoke to a local in line who assured us we were in for a treat. I tried the pistachio which they particularly endorse based on their recipe and i can vouch - it was...delicious. So creamy but so strong with the wonderful taste of pistachio. Paired with cheesecake ice cream. The vegan chocolate , mango and raspberry also really delicious if you are done with dairy like some in my group!More

Wow best and most authentic Gelato I've ever had in this country. And some in Italy. This cafe is run by an Italian family and it shows. You can have several flavours in one pot or just go for one it is also served in...cones. You can eat in or take away. We'll worth a visit if you are in the city.More

Best gelato ever! We travel to Italy a lot but this gelato is the best we’ve ever had. Try the vegan chocolate sorbet, it’s amazing.

Came here recently for ice cream, while we still have the good weather! Service was fast, there are plenty of great choices for ice cream and some sorbet options as well. All looked and tasted great, so was worth the price. Very happy with experience...overall. Would recommend!More

You cannot fault the gelato, great choice of flavours and taste and everything gelato wise is perfect. The only reason for 4 and not five is the staff do not look happy to serve you, no smiles, all have faces like they are annoyed for...you to be there. I think deep down they aren’t like that, but a smile goes a long way, especially when your paying £2.70 for one scoop of gelato.More

Amazing gelatos! We come here very year when we’re on holiday. Flavours are amazing, all home made no additives. Can have on a cornet or in a tub, prices very reasonable, staff friendly and helpful. It’s a must visit if you’re in Norwich

Friendly staff. Clean place, well displayed. Husband had Madagascar vanilla and said it was very tasty. I had orange and almond which was delicious. I'm hard to please with ice cream and this was in my top two ever had!!

Clean, tidy 20 flavours, 4 between us, mascarpone and caramelized fig our favourite. We hope to come back. Up a steep hill, but, worth the effort

The large queue outside spoke for itself! Exceptionally fast and efficient service. Really friendly and authentic. Absolutely loads of choice and reasonable prices. I had chocolate and biscof flavours and it was delicious. A few seats inside which was useful after a day walking around...the city. Toilets inside were also clean and modern. Very happy and not a surprise that there was a long queue as it was certainly worth the short wait.More

On my visit to Norwich I had ice-cream here. Dark chocolate sorbet, unusual but very delicious. Coffee is good too. I would definitely recommend this place.

No. Only very good ice cream, coffee, and a small array of Italian "biscotti", bisquits.
