I thought I had eaten at some of the best gelaterias in the world until I came across Gelato Marco. Not only is the texture absolutely amazing, the flavors are incredible and the selection broad. From milk-based gelato to sorbets and even alcoholic granitas. The place is small, but located in a nice area. Post trying multiple flavors, it is... More

They have a great range of flavors and taste, with some really friendly staff. It's definitely a local favorite and worth a visit. The dark chocolate (72%) and raspberry are sure winners.

Gelateria was really busy and it became really crowded as it is small inside, and a bit too overwhelming to be honest. Great flavours though.

The gelato was great. It was pretty busy but the staff kept the traffic moving along. Friendly staff and was patient with customers wanting to try samples.

This was recommended by our commuter car share driver and he was right! We visited just at the right time when there we no queues. Lots of choice . The flavours are excellent. Can recommend the yoghurt and sacher gelato.

The place is very small and simple which allows the owner to keep prices lower than its bigger competitors in the main street around the square. There are only few sitting places inside, but if you're easy-going you'll find a... More
