Happened upon this place about 6 years ago while on vacation and my family fell in love with the ice cream. In fact, some of us still say it's the best we've ever had. I was back in town on business and decided to stop back in to see if my memory was as good as reality. Despite fears I... More

Apparently michelle obama came here, it's super good gelato though! I came here twice, first time i tried the pistachio and nata (cream) flavors and second time the chocolate and sherry flavors. The sherry is spectacular!

This was a great after dinner spot to grab a sweet treat before bed. Our group got some cassata in a cone, which was like a Spanish spunoni as well as tarta o chocolate, which was muy bueno! Highly recommend.

I asked for my hotel directions prior to buying and staff patiently responded. I came back to try the sandwich ice cream (I forgot the name) and loved it!

It was over 100 degrees when we were in Granada. We saw people flocking to a particular ice cream shop and followed the crowd. Inside, we were overwhelmed with choices -- of varieties of cones, ice creams, gelatos, sorbettos, and many other offerings! The quality (I had chocolate gelato and orange sorbetto) was as good as or better than I... More

They have a nicely done card you should check out. Various ice cream specialties. The staff was very friendly and anticipative. I really loved the atmosphere there on a... More

Simply the best place to grab an ice cream while in Granada. I've tried a few, bit honesty there is no one better. And cheaper! For 2-3€ you get a home made Italian ice cream, very tasty, and very well recommend, as Michelle Obama was there 3-4 years ago, enjoying the place.

We were in Granada for two days and we visited Los Italianos twice and that was when we had to hold ourselves not got twice a day We all know that the Italian ice cream is probably the best in the world, we also know that many ice cream shops misuse the 'Italian' source of the ice cream so when...

I expected more from this place. Customers were going in and out very busy especially on a hot day like today. I didn't get the chocolate kick only mild one but a big sugar kick

This place doesn't need any hype. It has been going for over 100 years. A very unique place. Every dessert dish on their menu looks truly scrumptious. Even the simple flavours of vanilla or chocolate or strawberry are the best. Totally worth it. Not expensive at all. Horchata (tiger nuts crushed and made into a drink) a speciality of Spain....
