3rd trip to Bologna and the quality of the ice cream here never waivers. Love it, love it, love it! I usually have the crema or the rock but honestly you cant go wrong... I wish they would open branches in melbourne!

oh my God this place is so good. every single flavor. We visited every day we were in Bologna, so much that the employees started remembering us. Now we miss this gelato, other gelato doesn't cut it, this place is the best!

The icecream was made from fresh full fat milk and that make the icecream very tasteful . Very, very good, big variety and reasonable price.

Made the effort to look for this ice-cream shop (had to take the bus from the city centre to get there !) . Well worth the trip ! Traditional flavours, cost much less than shops in the city centre, good size portions! Will come back.

When you arrive at Cremeria, you may be put off by the queue. Don't just join it, as the wait it is sooooo worth it. Very reasonably price, and so soft. The assistant who served us spoke very good English and recommended the perfect ice cream with hot chocolate. Even late at night, the queue is out the door!!
