A lovely little ice cream shop. Comfortable seats to sit down and relax in and enjoy your ice cream. They also do milkshakes, waffles, pralines, crepes, panacotta, etc. I'd definitely recommend.

Authentic Italian Gelato. Endless flavours. Numerous cones, pastries. Also coffees, preserves, honey. Welcoming, friendly owner. Small seating area. Can recommend lemon gelato in a cannoli, cappuccino gelato and passionfruit gelato. There was also a sugar free gelato!
