The queue in this shop was amazing to get some take away ice cream. So i decided to wait patiently till my turn comes. After trying to understand which flavor is what cause nobody spoke English and of course you have to be fast because there are people waiting to order, I would say it was nice but for sure... More

Just enjoyed a great meal at Cristallo where we were served by the multi talented comedy genius that is Massimo. We had cannelloni piazza diavolo and a lovely side salad. The location of the terrace with views of lake Garda were amazing. Massimo was great I loved his style of service very in line with the Italian stereotype from laughing... More

I got a Margherita pizza that had no tomatoes or basil on it. The service was good but the food was dismal. The best thing I has was the crisps that came with my spritz.

We just came by for ice cream and it was very good. Lots of flavors to choose from and they all looked delicious. I had stracciatella, coffee and fior di panna and they were lovely. We sat outside by the lake while eating and it was so nice. Would happily come back another time.

Great place to buy gelato, a huge variety of flavours and really good size portions too. Used to buy gelato and sit on the shores of lake Garda , can't get much better than that.

I loved the choice of ice cream available. At 3 euros for two scoops it felt like a bargain. Tried a few flavours over a week, delicious.

I LOVE gelato and since we moved nearby, I have made a point to try as many shops as possible. I always ask for mint gelato because it is the easiest to "grade" based on looks and taste. NO, mint gelato should not be green!!! it is only green if they add food coloring. NO, mint gelato should not have... More

Three euros for a huge portion of ice cream you can't go wrong especially when the ice cream tasted so delicious. I you have read... More
