Very good vegan ice cream of different flavours, usually there's a choice of chocolate, hazelnut, amarena, straciatella and speculoos flavours, + some fruity flavours like strawberry and apple. The flavours can vary, sometimes it's more or less choice, but it's still really good. Pasta is...More

This place offers a few vegan ice cream options, very good stuff. The pasta is ok but the ice cream is better!

I think this is the best gelato in Gent, but I don't find it actually good. It is a bit too liquid and not too tasteful. The location is not too nice either.

The gelato here is not Italian at all. Plus, it's vegan: while I can appreciate that, it's really not a plus for the taste of flavors such as, say, tiramisù.

We are going for... Fresh homemade Italian ice-cream (the best you can find in Ghent?), a lot of good coffees (roasted by 'Or'), fresh pasta, soup and panini. Just come around and try our products. Also vegan options. Take away is served in 100% bio-compostable materials. Ciao!
