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.
