Unfriendly service and prices much higher than expected. No sign visible to say they don't accept credit cards, only cash. Gelato itself (esp peach) was disappointing. Plenty of other gelateria nearby where you'll have a delightful experience.

No prices at front of shop. Charged €10 per cone when going inside to pay. Not good ice cream, total scam. Avoid at all costs.
