Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nostalgia took me back to True & 12. Well... also because I am a sucker for gelato. I am happy to report that after 6 years the quality is still amazing. Creamy sorbet with tons of flavor and not too sweet. Blackcurrant was delicious. The...addition of ginger to mango made is less sweet and left a nice tingle at the end. I am glad I do not live here, or I would be much heavier...More

Something new in ice cream. Most of the ice cream shops have bitter ice cream. If you like dark chocolate, you have to try it. Unfortunately, we do no have it in the U.S. Sooooo good!

From Italy, where we have scruptious gelato, we loved this artisanal ice-cream. I got lavander-blackberry and hazelnut and let me tell you they were perfect! Lavander (as aftertaste, not too strong) and lovely creamy hazelnut. My sister had the lemon-mint sorbet, and it was one...of the best I have ever had :) Remember the only accept cash.

The ice-cream I had was really good. The chocolate flavored one was really chocolaty while the lemon-mint one was pretty minty. Overall the ice-cream tasted like it was of really high quality! They also had a vegan option for the chocolate flavored one. They didn’t...offer whipped cream though and I also wasn’t able to pay by card, so you might wanna bring some cash. I’ll go there again when i’m in the neighborhood the next time.More

Delicious ice cream right across from the Gasteig in Munich. We were in town for 2 1/2 wet and cool days and managed to stop by twice. My daughter even declared that our experience- "Ice Cream in the Rain" would be a great name for...a band. I enjoyed the caramel and the bergamot. Coming from a small town with its own dairies and ice cream traditions, I can appreciate the amazingness of this place.More
