This is one of the best places for gelato in the neighborhood. Prices are higher than they should be, but there is a decent range of flavors.

Delicious flavours and good prices. Definitely worth a trip if in the area and fancy a tasty pudding or treat! A few seats to sit on as well :)

We stopped here for desert after hearing about it from the New York Times. It was a great little place on a busy strip with other shops.

Three years ago my partner and I visited this place every night as I'm addicted to ice cream. This time I was visiting Rio with my friends and couldn't leave without going here again. The ice cream was better than I remembered and it's great...More

Best ice-cream I've ever had in my life. Every one of their creative flavours feels so fresh and natural you just want to keep eating until you are stuffed. I love it that they are parcimonious with sugar, some of the flavours feel like they...More

Best artisanal ice cream in Rio. Plenty of wonderful flavors to choose from. Gelatti e sorbetti... Gongonzola, Pumpkin with Coconut, Espresso, Dijon Mustard... The proprietor Andrea Panzacchi is always creating something new. I highly recommend it.

The gelato here ranks with the best I've had around the world. I had a medium cup with two flavors: chocolate with 75% cocoa and fior di latte. Dense flavors, creamy and rich. I will return often to try the other flavors.

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
