Just very good artisanal ice cream. The ice cream is good and the service is friendly. Nothing more to say.

You will be so happy choosing this gelato. The mango, chocolate, and coconut are just some favorites. I eat a lot of gelato when I’m in Italy. This is the best gelato in Cisternino and some of the best I’ve had in the whole country...during my extensive travels there. The owner and his wife are absolutely charming. They will do everything to make sure that you get the gelato that you want and that you are happy. I wish they would move to the US. During my one-month stay in this town, my friend was dying for gelato, and this shop was closed. We saw the owner just down the street talking to someone on his cell phone. During a break in conversation, we were able to communicate that we were dying for gelato. He opened the shop for us! Just for us! They are not fluent in English, but it just doesn’t matter. Be patient, and you will be so happy.More

What a fantastic selection of ice-cream in this small Italian hilltop town. The shop has an area where you can savour your ice cream and take your time within the cool area of the shop. Well worth a visit!!!

Popped in for an ice cream as we knew they served several options for lactose intolerant people of which one of our group was. Four options were available lactose free and we tried two of them both of which were lovely. Also priced extremely well...for high season in the middle of the town. 2€ per cup was very good.More

Don’t miss this place if you are visiting Cisternino. It’s not far from one of the pedestrian entrances to the centro storico. Wonderful gelato with unique flavours - try the fig and the biscotti. The owner is a lovely gentleman who offers you a taste...before you buy.More

Really lovely ice cream - every flavour we tried tasted home made, creamy and delicious. Particularly liked the amaretto flavour. Yum.

Definitely would go back there and take the biggest possible cono with only the ice cream of fresh figs and caramel. Absolutely delicious! The gentleman behind the counter was for himself a reason to like this parlor, so nice and attentive!

Very nice man behind the counter! I tried the gelato made of fresh figs, it was amazing! Even the cone is homemade. A real gourmet gelato business!

We were passing through Cisternino and popped into this gem of a gelateria on our guide’s recommendation. Pino, the owner, was lovely and allowed us to taste a few of the flavours. I settled on the orange chocolate and apple cinnamon, both of which were...delicious. A lovely local business where all of the gelato is made onsite. Worth a visit.More
