This is an elegant and very clean place, with a wide variety of flavours. Also, very inexpensive. Unfortunately, I picked the marron flavour and it really wasn't to my taste. My mistake, not theirs!

We came two Times, four people. Just amazing. I like the white coffee and my friend bought something with frusta. I think that's wipped cream. Just fantastic. The cannoli and ice cream sandwich were just ok.

Took a day off to discover the other direction from our hotel. Nice street. Plenty of locals. Woman understood English but not very helpful. The gelato is covered so we couldn't tell by looking. Took us some time but the reward was in the gelato....More

Best gelato in Italy so far (half way into a 3 week trip with a daily gelato itinerary!). Ridiculously creamy. Mascarpone and anything with nuts a must!!!! Don't miss it.

Visited many rated gelato places in Rome, Venice, Florence. Cremeria Santo Stefano puts them to shame. This place is WOW. It did not seem very touristy, many older locals buying daily.

We stayed in an apartment just a few steps away and had this on our door step. This compares to some of the best ice cream we had last year in Sicily. Highly recommend the salted pistachio and the marscapone & pine nut. Totally delicious!
