Do not miss this spot!

5 Posted on 09 / 14 / 2013

Went here almost every day for the week we spent in the Bologna region. As a vegan, I felt it was my duty to indulge in their rice milk based creamy ice creams and report back on them back to happy cow! I can confirm that this place is AMAZING. You're welcome.

There are about 10 rice-based vegan flavours, 5-6 water based a few raw milk based flavours. My personal favourites were the creamy rice-milk options including pistachio (mediterraneo) and hazelnut (nocciolate) flavours. Also loved the coffee (caffe) and coconut (coco) flavours. If you are in the area - do not miss this spot!

There is no seating other than a bench on the sidewalk/pavement across from the shop that seats about 4-5.

If you are staying in the area and have a freezer - you can buy this by the tub.

The sign above the shop says that it is open from midday to 11pm daily.

Pros: VEGAN ICE-CREAM, VEGAN ICE-CREAM, VEGAN ICE-CREAM
Cons: No seating

Great gelato, supernatural and vegan. Never seen and tasted anything like that, ever. Five stars all the way.

Pros: taste, healthy
Cons: they don't open a chain! :-)

Unusual Flavours

5 Posted on 08 / 12 / 2013

I found this little place by accident on a scorching hot day. The flavours of ice-cream on offer were unusual, e.g. lemon and basil -- but very tasty and refreshing.

They said they made their ice-cream from rice of all things. Very nice and worth the visit.

I think it has now another address.
We were there last week and there are a large choice of vegan ice cream. Almond, chocolate, gianduia, cocco, and fruit ice cream...
Very good!

Pros: Large choice vegan, Not so expensive, Yummy
