We all agreed this is by far the best ice cream we have ever had... the choice is amazing. There was roughly a choice of ten dark chocolate ice creams ... from Jamaican with rum... Fijian with Orange liquor and pure 100% dark chocolate. Which...More

Surely there can't be a better gelateria in Milan. Possibly the best gelato we've ever tasted, especially the pistachio which was recommended by a local connoisseur. Two scoops for 2.80 euros make it cheaper than inferior gelateria in the city centre. Admittedly it's in an...More

Ice cream was amazing. Staff a little rude as we didn’t speak Italian (but they all understood us) but the taste definitely made up for it.

Nothing missing but walnut (a taste that I adore in general). Go and dive in the 10 chocolate tanks...

Probably the best ice cream I tried in Italy. It has the taste and seems to be made from natural ingredients.

Stopped in to grab some gelato. Was the 3rd gelato place I went to in less than 16 hours. Was my favorite of my time in Milan.

He was right, my Italian «colleague», who told me I just HAD to go here to taste the best gelato in the whole wide world! He was actually supposed to take us there himself, but our planning was a little off and he ended up...More

Our friends took us to this awesome gelateria. They have 10 different chocolate flavors, many other wonderful flavors, semifreddi and a friendly staff. So glad to have found this new favorite!

Discovered the hidden gem on our walks around the side-streets. The queue was very long late in the evening so we walked back when it opened and had an amazing treat. Go there but be patient as many have discovered the place... but absolutely worth...More

The ice cream shop Il Massimo del Gelato, was born in Milan in 2001. Unlike other ice cream shops that love to surprise and study extravagant tastes, tastes are without exaggeration, the attention is paid only to the quality. We like to show our customers the freshness of our raw materials by placing fruit boxes at the entrance. Every day we choose carefully the best ingredients and we create an ice cream able to rediscover the pleasure of a color, a perfume, a texture and a forgotten taste. The Maestro Gelatiere Massimo Travani offers a unique collection of chocolate ice cream in Milan: 100% cocoa, Criollo, Domori Venezuelan to 75%, with chili, with cinnamon, stuffed with candied orange and Grand Marnier and many other original creations made from chocolate . Products of the shop: homemade ice cream, granita (ice and pure fresh fruits), cakes and cold pastry.
