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.

Late night treat on the way home. Great service and good choice of flavours!! Very generous portion of ice cream, and tasted amazing! We went back twice!

They did not have a great selection of flavors, but maybe my memory is inaccurate. And the quality was just average. Not special. They get a lot of customers so it is an assembly line. A chain.

Very recommended gelateria. We tried one of the best pistaccio ice creams of our lifes and the size of the ice creams is huge indeed. Very recommended.

Very good ice cream, the service is excellent and the space is very good and cozy to be in. Prices are a bit too high though, but not far from the other high-end ice cream shops in Porto.

After a visit to the bookstore I felt in need of sustenance and as soon as I spotted this place knew I had come to the right place, with so many different flavours to choose from and all so beautifully presented. I felt like a...kid in a sweetshop - and it tasted as good as it looked!More

The woman who served was very rude and abrupt and did not smile or make you feel comfortable in such an exquisite store, like you should feel.

Eye candy gelateria (ice-cream shop), close to Torre dos Clérigos and next door to the famous Livraria Lello. Inside seating area in a Starbucks-style. Wide choices of flavours. The ones I tasted were all delicious. Kind staff. Prices higher than expected and, probably, higher than...on average too.More

Staying just around the corner so on the way back to our hotel we couldn't resist. Plenty of sorbets and ice-cream flavours to choose from. As many different flavours as you like. Interior was great like old fashioned dessert parlour. Very friendly gentleman served us

Fabulous gelato parlour. Ice cream. Milk shakes sorbets coffee's. Sit in or take away. Plenty of flavours and you can have as many as you want in tub or cone. Inexpensive for what you get. Very good.

You can choose from a wide range of both ice cream and sorbets. The cones are turned into an ice cream flower with up to 6 flavours. Wonderful

Besides being so good, they build the ice cream like a rose! Good location, just next to Lello, very central. Perfect place for a pit stop!

I had some other gelato in Porto which was not very good so I was reluctant to try this place as it was touristy right next to the bookstore. It was by far the best gelato I had in Porto. Yummy hazelnut and chocolate. They...will let you combine flavors. Busy and crowded.More

A hot day (at last) and a good looking ice cream shop cannot be passed. Queue was huge. Some Harry Potter linked bookshop next door clearly brings lots of clients. Queue clears quickly and there is quite a task selecting your size, cone or cup...(cone recommended since they are prettier and bigger) and then 12 flavours. You can have as many as you want and they sculpt a flower from your choice. I stuck with cherry, which was very tasty. €4.50 for the medium cone is not the cheapest in Porto, and probably not the best, but a reliable, central tourist destination.More
