The best ice cream I have ever had in Liguria, and possibly the best I have ever had in the whole of Italy! Great prices for large servings of ice cream, a huge range of flavours ranging from the essential to the more exciting and obscure. There's definitely lots for everyone, and there are even two lactose free ice cream... More

Name the flavour and they have it. Great selection of gelataria, right in the piazza and you can just kick back and relax and watch children playing or the sun setting.

Excellent Service and very good Ice Cream all tastes have a personality and a real flavor, this Gelateria then is located in a lovely historical square with nice benches where one can peacefully taste this delicious Ice Cream.

I could not get enough of this place's yoghurt ice cream. It is absolutely delicious! My partner sampled lots of their other flavours and he rated them very high. €2 for two big scoops! With friendly service.

This Gelateria has so many good ice creams that it will be hard to pass by. In front there are benches on which to eat your favorite ice cream. Mine is the Straciatella which has many pieces of chocolat in it. It is good I only go to Finale during the holidays otherwise one should gain a lot of kilo's.

Really good ice cream, very nice ladies working there. The best types of ice cream were those that can be prepared from more local ingredients: pistacchio, fior di latte, lampone, etc... Then - nicely located benches to eat out and watch the piazza :)

The ice cream is always at the right consistency, never too frozen, always creamy. And the extra-friendly staff is always so patient with clients who take forever to choose the flavours!
