The best gelato in Milano (and that is saying a lot). All the flavors are awesome (especially the fior de latte!), but if you've got a few, sample their various chocolates, they are justifiably awesome...

We stumbled across Massimo by accident getting off the wrong metro stop and just was strolling the area. The gelato was excellent an reasonably priced.

Probably the best gelato I ever tasted! Not crowded, gentle stuff! They have around 7 different flavours of chocolate! The prices: fair and well worth the money!

We had a variety of flavours and it is by far the best we have tasted throughout Italy. We arrived late afternoon and there was not much of a wait. If there is a line it is definitely worth the wait!

I have tried a few of the most famous ice creams in Milan and find this especially good, with a great balance between lightness of texture and richness of flavour. This time I noticed prices are good, too. 22 Euros per kilo would be reasonable...More

Extremely goof ice creams. The variety is vast and the woman who works there is very nice and speaks good English. It's a little far from city center.

The ice cream shop Il Massimo del Gelato, was born in Milan in 2001. Unlike other ice cream shops that love to surprise and study extravagant tastes, tastes are without exaggeration, the attention is paid only to the quality. We like to show our customers the freshness of our raw materials by placing fruit boxes at the entrance. Every day we choose carefully the best ingredients and we create an ice cream able to rediscover the pleasure of a color, a perfume, a texture and a forgotten taste. The Maestro Gelatiere Massimo Travani offers a unique collection of chocolate ice cream in Milan: 100% cocoa, Criollo, Domori Venezuelan to 75%, with chili, with cinnamon, stuffed with candied orange and Grand Marnier and many other original creations made from chocolate . Products of the shop: homemade ice cream, granita (ice and pure fresh fruits), cakes and cold pastry.
