This store is a bit out of the way but really worth it. Good selection and you can tell it's the real deal. No bright colors or overflowing containers here. This was one of the best gelatos we had all trip and it was on the cheaper end of the scale. The cashier didn't speak great English but it's wasn't too challenging.

Very good ice cream, great service! Small off the beaten path but worth the walk over there. Definitely try it!

Between four of us we spent a very happy hour eating ice cream and the home-made cakes, drinking coffee and thick chocolate. So much to see as well as taste, this place has lots of 'ice cream' related stuff, old photos and watercolours. Fabulous flavours and a really helpful and friendly patron. There were vegan ice cream choices and a couple of gluten free cakes I think .

We went to Il Gelatauro after seeing it in the “where Chefs Eat” book as being worth the travel. While there are plenty of gelato places closer to the center of the old city, this place was fantastic. We asked to try a flavor and immediately after without prompting we were offered other flavors to try. The hardest part was figuring out which flavor was our favorite. Our 6 month old also needed a diaper change while there and we were quickly let into the bathroom (for use by paid customers only). Would definitely recommend to others and go again any time we find ourselves back in Bologna.

We managed to find this hidden gem and found some great flavours here, including pumpkin, which was super - highly recommended.
