Fodor's Review

This gelato shop is charming in its historic ivy-covered building in the Piazza del Catalone with its famous fountain for pilgrims. The products here are made according to tradition with just the essentials: milk, cream, sugar, and eggs, usually all from organic farms. They only serve fruit flavors that are in season, with sorbetti consisting of water, sugar, and 51% minimum of fruit. Cannoli and other desserts are also made in the shop.
