Based on a strong recommendation from Rick Steve's, we tried De'Coltelli's. It is a very nice shop that serves gelato and Sicilian ice. I was so tempted to try the ice, but instead got a small strawberry and vanilla gelato. They were both excellent. I...More

Have to say that this is another decent joint for gelato. The one which is really impressive was ricotta with olive. Weird but yummy.
