The gelato here is made with the best ingredients in Italy. I come here every time I come to Bologna. It's a little far from the city center but it is definitely worth it. The pistachio gelato is one of the best I've had!

Without no doubts, Gelatauro serves the best ice cream in Bologna. I really love the atmosphere of the place which is very quite and peaceful. High quality ingredients mixed with high expertise. If you go to Bologna, you cannot simply miss it.
