It just an ice cream shop, but there is nothing like Italian gelato. Made from milk, unlike American ice cream which is made from cream. Why does the gelato always seem to be so much richer than American ice cream? A great place and well worth the time and minor expense. The location is unbeatable. I recommend it.

With 3 Gelaterias in Vernazza the competition is fierce. This is good, fresh, very smooth gelato and the lnes are long in the later afteroon proving its popularity..

This might be the best gelato I had during two weeks in Italy (including gelato-famous Florence) - and I ate a lot of gelato. I didn't try the other gelaterias in town, but despite what Rick Steves has to say, the Gelato here was delicious and creamy. Look for the sign that says "Gelato Amore Mio," along the Main Street.

We came here after the beach, before the dinner hour, and got to enjoy watching the street, and how quite it got with the people hurrying to their place of stay to wash up and change for dinner. The gelato was good. TBH, i haven't had bad gelato in italy, so...

This is the first time I have written a bad review. Let me start that the ice cream is good and a reasonable price. However the service is extremely rude. I asked for three scoops of ice cream and the person behind the counter misunderstood and gave me two. Not an issue as there was clearly a misunderstanding, which happens.... More

The gelato was good and cappuccino was excellent - one of the best I've ever had. My only reason for giving it 4 stars is that the saleslady seemed to have an annoyed and bad attitude with us for some reason, despite us tipping her, which is unusual in Italy and especially in places like gelateria. Still, I'd recommend it... More

Excellent place to relax on the tiny terrace as the crowds heave just below you. The most gorgeous town and delicious ice cream and frozen yoghurt

I love gelato in Italy. This place was great for choice, size, and speed. There was a line out the door, and it was just enough time to converse with others about which choice to have. You can choose three different flavors while you are at it.
