We loved this place on our trip to Varenna. The gelato, specifically nocciola, was extremely good and we loved that they had non-dairy flavors for our son. The view cannot be beat. I will be back on our next trip to Varenna! Thank you for...More

Popped here to rescue the night after an incredibly poor meal at Il Molo, and it did the trick :) Was a limited range of flavours (always a good thing in my book) but tasted great! 3 scoops for €2.50(ish) from memory.

We got our ice creams in the early afternoon like think it opens at about 11am but not absolutely sure. Also we were there in July. Hours might reduce after the main holiday season.
