I lived in trieste for 6 years and i love Marco's icecream. Although is not the oldest or most popular place in town for ice cream is my favourite. Offers a wide range of flavours from the classics ones to more challenging tastes like chocolate -with-orange or after-eight. The icecream is prepared just behind the selling counter. Lactose free specials... More

The top of trieste. Low cost and high quality. For an icecream, find the way to pass in front of Marco.

Best ice cream ever (probably) but the number of people in the tiny available space all clamouring for their cones or tubs might not be for everyone. It makes it difficult to see what ice creams or granites they have and there's no real queuing system.That being said the service from the girls in there was as good as could... More

Friendly service, feel free to ask for recommendations, flavors are truly mouth watering and one of the best ice creams I have enjoyed in Italy. Actively recommend for all.

A cozy shop that you easily find because of the happy people who are waiting their turn outside for receiving an excellent ice cream served by smiling waiters.

They have really good vegan ice-cream and it's close to Piazza Unità so you can enjoy it while you walk in the most beautiful italian square!

The ice cream is average good and the service is nice, but it is open in summer only with a limited time in the day, when it happens to be almost always too crowded, and it's not structured to give you the time to decide and feel all the good things an ice cream can give. Parking is impossible, it's... More

This gelato is absolutely heavenly and really unexpected in this city! Every single flavour had a little bit different texture, namely the one that perfectly fitted the flavour itself: Take tiramisu - the gelato was so soft, just as a tiramisu should be. Or the greek yogurt with honey and apricot - it was just like eating the colder, a... More
