On our Italy road trip we've sampled gelatos from all parts of Italy and this cremeria was our first, so naturally we had a great staring point for judging. This gelato is by far and wide the best gelato in the world, even better than...More

This is a really nice ice cream shop and really good value. I would have given it 5, but i visited another gelateria in bologna the day before which was slightly more to my taste. Still really excellent ice cream and i recommend.
