This is not the best ice cream in Italy by any stretch of the imagination. I have had MUCH MUCH better and positively delicious ice cream in Tuscany and Cambridge! This was distinctly average. Don't waste you time and money.

Best Granite. Best Coppa. Best Arancini. Best Espresso. Best Budino di Mandorle ... and not to forget: best service.

It's a lovely cafe in a beautiful back street in a stunning baroque town, and even though it serves nice ice cream, it does not serve the best in the world, as claimed in Lonely Planet. I say this with regret, as I had high...More
