Went there after a walk in the park. Easy to find and nice location, with a bakery nearby. The taste of this gelato is beyond anything I've tasted before, really fresh and incredibly good. But the best thing about this gelateria, is the price. 2€ for three flavors is a steal really, plus that the cup is eatable. I might... More

My wife and I did go a few times to Nilo's and not just for the ice cream but also for the excellent cappuccino enjoying it while savoring some of their swet delights of all sorts that we would take a dozen of and share. Rather small pastry stuffed with different kinds of custard and sweet variety of goodies. Highly... More

Very tasty and natural ice cream, as evidenced by its taste and demand. In the evening it's full of Italians, and even is an electronic queue. So demand is the gelateria. I recommend to try ice cream "Nilo's". In the nearby bar you can buy a cup of espresso, which perfectly complement to the ice cream. Ice cream served in... More

Have been coming to Nilo's for the past 7 years or so every August. What can I say? It's the best ice-cream place I have ever been to. I don't have a particularly sweet tooth? and normally ice-cream leaves me indifferent, but this is not the case with Nilo's! This is Italian ice-cream with passion, love, and an excellent service...

At Nilo's you get an icecream or sorbet, at least as good as the best (e g Prati, Grom...) at the touristic "lungomare". The major difference is, at Nilo's you pay half the price or a bit more. In addition the staff have more time and are more friendly than on the busy beachwalk.

It is probably the best gelateria in the city. While I wouldn't consider the ice-cream "out of this world" , but it certainly is good!

Nilo's is widely considered a classic in Viareggio. It was once known as being the best gelateria in the city. While I wouldn't consider the ice-cream "out of this world" amazing, but it certainly is good!
