The lines at this gelateria were so long the first couple of times we came, we gave up. Luckily, the place is close to where we are staying, so we could go back. It is out of the historical center a couple of blocks, and they have a grocery store across the street. It is just a storefront opening, so... More

Just the best when it is the real McCoy and this is just great. Salted caramel maybe a little light in the caramel but the pistachio is amazing.

Excellent gelato here. A bit off the main strip in a fairly run down street, but worth visiting. Open until fairly late.

As most places in this area they have an fantastic pistachio gelato, but the real winner for me is their Crema Mediterranea. Almonds, pine, pistachios... the best ice cream I´ve ever eaten. Their Salt Caramel is also an beatiful peace of gelato art.

While I love your usual gelato flavors (chocolate, stracciatella, etc), I tend to go for more unusual ones. The flavors that I had here were Sicilia (almonds, pistachios and lemon) and one of my favorite flavors ever: basil! Didn't think that basil would work in gelato form but it did and it was awesome! I ate my gelato while walking... More

There are other gelateria in Bologna that are really really better. Not worth going to galleria 49. Staff was friendly however.

It's well worth the slightly out of the way location for this top notch gelletiera. Wow! The flavor actually taste like the fruit you are eating! Really liked the pear and the peach. Yum.

This one should be visited more than once - so hard to decide The regular ice cream and sorbet sound so good, but we opted for pistachio granita and three other flavours. Granita was refreshing, bursting of flavours - 100% recommendation

Found this place on tripadvisor less than a block from my hotel. Everyone was saying how good it was. Oh my were they right! It was the best I have ever had in Italy! I couldn't believe how good it was. It does get quite busy though and any flavor is good. I will for sure go back next time... More

We saw the queues by this shop a couple of times and Googled it to find our hotel was nearly opposite the best one cream place in bologna. The queues is always at least five people long. We went for an icecream at gone 11pm and there was still two people in front of us. I had choc and paul... More
