Easy to find small place with the most delicious selection of icecream and cakes. All homemade. Worth a visit. Any day. Every day !

This ice cream is amazing by UK standards as you sadly can’t buy quality ice cream in UK. But by Italian standards it’s average - the focus is on creaminess and sweetness rather than flavour and quality of ingredients. The gelato in Rome in cheaper...and superior.More

I'm sorry but "Italian pastries" just don't cut it generally, EXCEPT here at Pinguino. They really do it RIGHT. DELICIOSO!

This is a great place o hang out on a warm evening. The ice creams were generously filled and had a good range of flavours. Artisan ice cream at its best. It is also has good wifi!

This tiny little place is delightful. They make pastries as well as ice cream and are open until late most nights. My favourites were the limone (very tangy), nocciola (mellow and nutty) and pistacchio (rich and creamy).

Some of the friendliest people run this place, and the gelato?!?!? It's amazing. And the sweets?!?!? Frozen and fresh baked sweets. If you eat at a restaurant in Calasetta, I recommend you go here to pick up some deserts, or eat them on the benches...under the awning outside. When I'm in Calasetta I go almost every day.More

Excellent ice creams and also very good confectionery. After a day under the sunlight on the beach a forced stop to cool ideas. Recommended.
