They have a great 'showroom' of their work. The gelato flavors displayed under their glass counter look very appetizing and the ones we tried taste very good. They have more of s homemade taste than the other stores and we tried quite a few.

We visited the glee terai Eliot on a recommendation. The selection of fresh gelato is exceptional. Pear, fig, chestnut, cinnamon,... Plus all of the usual flavored. The pear gelato, tasted like you were eating a pear. Fantastic!

The pistachio gelato tasted like eating the nuts themselves and the fig gelato was from figs picked off his own trees!

Although this is a small shop, it has a lot to offer. There was at least 20 different flavours of ice cream to choose from and the man behind the counter was very helpful and extremely friendly.

We tried quite a few gelaterias during our stay in the town and this was the best - by far. Every gelato we tried was exceptional, and the family that runs the shop are friendly, funny and speak great English.

Here we ate the best icecream we met in Italia. You can taste that it is home made. We took mint and vanilla. We didn’t sit down, the benches on the square under the trees facing the boots are more suited for this.
