Every time I am in my former hometown I take an ice cream from this fabulous Gelateria. Every time a wide range of flavors and new ideas. Try white nougat or cinnamon and you know how good ice cream can taste... Unfortunately the price is rising every year. So you now have to pay 1.10 euro per scoop :(

Some chairs and tables are on the street (pedestrian zone) so you can enjoy the street scene when the weather is good. Friendly service, great ice-cream creations.

We are avid ice cream tasters who have eaten ice cream in very many places. Our judgment here was unanimous: This is the best ice cream we've ever eaten! Too bad we can only give 5 stars because it was clearly above the normal score. Extraterrestrial delicious taste and texture. The best for us were the After-eight-ice cream and Brownie... More

If you think you have already had the best Italien icecream then go to Fontanella and you will realise you had not until you tried theirs.

We were interrailing and happened to visit osnabruch on just the day when this place was having some annual celebration or maybe birthday of a sort. The prices were discounted and this encouraged my group of friends and I to try out all kinds of crepes and ice creams. They were all excellent and we had a great time there!

Great selection of ice cream and puddings, plus milkshakes and smoothies. Nice to support a historic, family run business. Nice atmosphere and good service.

This is Osnabrück's best ice cream by far!! Fontanella has an amazing selection of ice cream and ice cream-related offerings.

Really - there are queues for a reason! It's worth the wait when you see your childs face having to chose from the large and interesting selection of Ice Creams - my personal favourite when sitting down is the Spaghetti Eis - and their strawberry sauce is clearly freshly made, sweet and tangy :) I cannot wait to go here...

From an Italian ice-cream eater point of view, it's good. Not excellent though. the service, as usual in eis cream shops in germany, is way too fast :-)
