the owners 2 southern Italian guys very nice, the place tiny and warm. It reminds me italy, made with passion and tradition. I tried pistachio, walnut and mix of chocolate flavours that I have to say absolutely tasty! fresh and light, not the usual preserved colored junk one people call ice crem ... well done guys!

Basic modern style small shop with small outside seating area on a minor junction near Mall of Emirates. Polite and pleasant staff and small selection of bakery croissants & good coffee. Good quality ice-cream at reasonable prices, particularly lotus biscuit and the caramel are flavoursome.

Great latte coffee and lovely ice cream. Very clean and friendly staff. Nice out side seating area. But quiet near a busy road junction. Good to sit and watch the world pass by. Very reasonable prices

Pistachio is heaven here.. Hazelnut is delicious. The prices is very responsible for a Gelato comparing with the ones in the malls. Do not try the sorbet one. It taste average. If u like italian ice cream., dont hesitate to give a visit.

A small shop not far from mall of the emirates. We stumbled upon it when looking for something more authentic than the franchise food in MOE. The flavours are not extensive, but most of what they have is very good. Some though (as pointed out by other reviewers) are too sweet. I found the pistachio particularly good, tasting like "real"...

We have been to Bacio three times and I can say Hazelnut ice cream is a must for us to have each time! It's a quiet little shop in the corner behind Mall of the Emirates but trust me it's worth visiting. Then you're gonna say..."ohhhh!!! why shouldn't I try it eearlier?!" :)

We went for a desert after dinner, the outdoor seating was good at night with the cool breeze. The caramel and biscuits flavors were good but I didn't like the snickers flavor.

It's a tiny little hole in the wall place in AlBarsha area. Walking distance from Mall of the Emirates. Some flavors were very nice & authentic like hazelnut & pistachio. Others were of poorer quality & chock full of sugar. Staff very friendly & laidback. Parking availability not too difficult. The outdoor seating is especially nice in the cooler months.

Just round the corner from the entrance to LuLu supermarket there is a lovely little cafe and gelataria which sells really good quality coffee and ice cream. It's tiny and part of the large City Stay apartment block. Sadly both times I've been it hasn't been busy at all. The coffee they use is cafe vergnano which I used to... More
