By far one of the best gelato and sorbet I have had! It’s clean and you can see the kitchen at the back where there it’s all made.

Delicious ice cream with some original flavours and well worth the walk from the centre of town. Service was excellent and the ice cream in the brioche bun is well worth a try.

This took me by surprise. When in Italy, it's hard to go wrong with gelato, but this place really stands out. The ice cream is so smooth and creamy and just amazing. Flavours are unique too. Great find.
