While gelato was pretty good and the scoop size generous, we had some bad luck with cones. Both of them started leaking really soon, so we had our experience ruined a bit by focusing on trying not to drip all over ourselves and the pavement.

Really enjoyed my red fruit gelato - and a very generous serving too - good price/quality ratio. My husband had lemon cake - also delicious! Sometimes lemon ice cream can be quite artificial tasting.

Best ice cream in Leuven. They have regular ice cream like chocolate or some fruits. Additionally they have special types like dark chocolate sorbet, fruits that are not common as ice cream or basil. All types of ice cream I have tried so far were very delicious.

As a big ice-cream fan, I have tasted ice-cream all over Europe… But Decadenza, my friends, serves the best ice-cream I have every tasted. The service is friendly, the ingredients are fresh and it tastes just soo good. I regret not living in Leuven any more, just for this place!

The ice cream here far outshines any I've eaten in town or anywhere in Belgium, for that matter! Delicious flavors, all the classics plus new interesting ones, made fresh daily by a darling husband and wife team. When they open their doors in March again for the spring season, it's a day to celebrate!

Thank Robin V
