Visited on a recommendation from a friend. A good range of ice cream flavours and very large portions. Slightly more expensive than I would have expected however. Nevertheless well worth a trip as part of a Margate visit

Really nice gelato. Portion size very generous. Fairly expensive but most gelato places are. Quite small inside but we managed to get a seat.

I loved the ice cream here. It is slightly expensive, but it is delicious and worth it! There was a long queue despite it being early April. I look forward to returning and trying other flavors.
