What a win! Delicious, authentic flavours, good price and the cakes just looked amazing - wish we'd come on our first night of our holiday instead of the last! I can recommend the pistachio Gelato with extra crushed pistachios on top.

This place has truly amazing icecream. The bitter chocolate was among the best I’ve ever tasted. A good reward after a visit to the duomo inside the city walls.

“Nessun segreto, solo un amore incondizionato per il mio lavoro e una grande passione per le cose fatte bene”. Una filosofia di vita che da anni Luigi, mâitre chocolatier di Theobroma, porta avanti con assoluta convinzione. Ecco cosa c’è dietro ad ogni singolo capolavoro di dolcezza, una cura maniacale per i dettagli, la scelta scrupolosa delle migliori materie prime e uno studio costante di abbinamenti tra gusti, consistenze, colori e forme.
