...Sunday work was worth it...for the gelato. Most of the gelaterias are still closed but this place managed to open early. At temperatures around 20 degree Celsius is gelato a must. A little surprise: the coconut-apple-pineapple “snow ball”...utterly delicious.
The quality of the ice cream is ok, perhaps among the best you can find in Frankfurt, what is absolutely wrong and inacceptable is the hygene standards of this place.
I went for an ice cream earlier today and the lady at the counter TOUCHED...THE INSIDE/OUTSIDE of the cone without a napkin but with "bare" hands, the same with which later on touched the change for what I paid.
Also, when I came in she was not wearing a mask and I am sure she did not sanitised her hands before serving me. No need to say that I just ate the cream on top and left everythign that had touched the cone.
This would be already disgusting in normal times but in pandemic times it becomes borderline criminal.
I would advise the next customers to ask for a cup instead of a cone or ask the lady to not touch the cone with her hands.More
It is not a good gelato, especially if you work in the area and need your “everyday fix”. Good quality over the years. If you want great stuff, you need to walk a couple of hundred meters more to Aroma...
Went for ice cream with my family on a hot day when visiting Frankfurt. We ordered ice cream which was good, but when it came for asking the bill I was about to use my card - big no. The lady looked down on me...like if I had tried to do something very low and said unpolitely - we only take cash - there is a bank around the corner! and walked away. Had there been even one bitte or please or just sorry we don’t take card - would have felt at least tiny bit consideration towards customer but not one polite word. Luckily I had some cash too with me - as I had taken some for emergency but I cant believe that in a modern Germany - in Frankfurt! they don’t accept card! Not debit nor credit ?! When we walked out I checked there was no sign advicing ‘cash only’ - that should be advised beforehand. The rude service left a bad feeling - usually the aim is that clients are made to feel good not bad :(More
Probably the best ice cream in Europe!!
No one will be disappointed visiting this friendly ice cream parlour. We went everyday, just couldn't help ourselves especially as the temperatures were in the late 30's, early 40's.
Even though right now maybe is not the most usual time to eat ice cream (which is in summer) but a nice Spagehtti ice is always a good idea :-) The Fontanella ice is very delicious and the staff is great. If you have never...tried a Spaghetti ice before, go for it.More
