The ice-cream is just wonderful and the owner is friendly and very interesting. Don't forget to visit the shop in Porthmadog as well where you will meet his wife and daughter who are equally lovely (the view is better from Criccieth though!

We uniquely combine Classic Italian ideas with local fruits, blossoms and berries. We serve our produce from an authentic Italian three wheel Piaggio Ape. We are also the only ice cream maker in the UK able to offer their produce by MAIL
