We were walking around the neighborhood and noticed a number of people going to this place. Seems like the customers all know each other. It is a trendy place with a local vibe, people walking their dogs stop for some gelato in a bun which...More

Our absolute favourite Gelateria ever. Intensely tasty flavours (especially, for us, the nocciola, settevelli nocciola, chocolate, amarena and caramel).

During our stay in Palermo, we visited it every day. Just to have a chance to try all the pistachio flavors. The products served there are just exceptional.

The images speak for themselves. We were lucky to have had someone recommend this place as we had a hard time finding authentic gelato in Palermo. This place did not disappoint! We only wish we'd had more time in the area to get some more!

What a great place - I waited 45 minutes for a gelato and would have waited another 45. Who knew Gelato can be so good. They serve it in a brioche. The wait was fun- great music - packed and got to watch all kinds...More
