This tiny little place serves up the most delicious, authentic gelato in a huge range of flavours. Incredibly tasty! What a gem!

Amazing value on the meal deals, drinks nice, staff friendly (but just a bit slow/ possibly understaffed) . I imagine they are very busy on the Tuesdays as they do a meal deal that night and it's also half price cinema night so I'd say half the town is in there... None the less, when the staff came around they... More

Dropped by after lunch at Rugatino's for a bit of a taste treat of their fantastic Vanilla... It was absolutely delicious.

It's such a nice feeling to be able to get a piece of Italy here, get that feeling of a true ice cream and a espresso. The gelato is very good quality and it varies, the special of the month is always a surprise. Frappucino is gorgeous in a sunny day! Give it a try, won't regret it.

Sensational home made ice cream combined with a really italian coffee. Lovely service and feeling immediately at home. The next day we went for a piadina with spinach and it was one of the best piadina we ever tasted. Very clean and tidy.

Fabio sells coffee and hand made ice cream. Both are wonderful! You can also buy coffee pots and ground coffee or coffee beans and it makes better coffee that Ive tasted anywhere else in Ireland.

Fabio is a family favourite and his ice cream specials are sensational. Love bringing the kids there - it's very reasonably priced & great coffee too!

This little oasis in the middle of Sligo is the perfect retreat for the disinterested shopper! Great coffee, delicious artisan ice cream and window tables. Soothing jazz playing in the background and the world passing by outside......a little piece of utopia :) Only seats about 6 customers. Very exclusive!!!

Hands down the best take away coffee spot I've discovered being someone who lives off the stuff in work, met with conversation and jokes and a huge welcome from my first visit to my last. Superior service.
