Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The shop manager has no patience in communicating. The service and impression is very bad and off putting. I wish I could try their gelato. The people on duty was simply not welcoming.

One of the BEST gelatos we have ever had. The mango was out of this world. The pistachio was really good too. Owner prefers cash.

Of course the location is great. The gelato is just ok - very average. What really annoyed me was this: we ordered 2 medium sized gelatos and went out to find a place to sit down, and started to eat. Discovered the gelato had been...scooped such that there was a large empty pocket of just air under the top layer of gelato. On both! So obviously deliberate. Really? For nearly 5 euros?More

Grab a gelato and enjoy the views! The flavor-forward gelato was nice & fresh. The black cherry was our favorite!

We stopped here on the recommendation of our walkabout tour guide after hiking in from Corniglia and wow - it was amazing! It was the perfect reward after that hike and there's no better location/view to eat gelato in. (Okay there are plenty in Italy,...but this one was pretty special!) My husband and I both had the cinnamon and I also had a scoop of the latte. Really delicious and quick and friendly service!More

Nice ice cream, I ordered 'ambrogio' and 'canella' and was not disappointed. The staff was quite friendly. Note that only cash payment is possible.

Best gelato in Cinque Terre. It is right next to the port and has the creamiest & most flavorful gelato. I also tried the sorbet types and they were perfect!

On a recent family trip to Tuscany and the Cinque Terre we decided upon stopping here in Vernazza for some light refreshment and gelato. Handily located in the picturesque bay there is a wide range of gelato to choose for. We opted for straticiatella which...was very nice. Prices were comparable to other places in the region. Highly reccomendMore

This gelato shop was highly recommended by our tour guide and it had a line out the door. The gelato was great! They had some unusual flavors as well as the standard. Really good and the price less than that in Florence. A big plus...is that you can eat your ice cream out by the marina! What a view!More

This place has the best gelato in Vernazza. All made right on site. So many flavors to choose from! We got ours in cups, but they also have cones. Afterwards, you can stroll along the harbor. They are busy because their gelato is so good.

They had a nice selection of flavors. I had the custard and cinnamon. The custard was fine but underwhelming. The cinnamon was very nice.
