Description: 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.

Extremely goof ice creams. The variety is vast and the woman who works there is very nice and speaks good English. It's a little far from city center.

We heard before going to Milano about this Gelateria and we were sad to be in Milano just on a Monday when this Gelateria is officially closed.
We were really surprised that around a corner in Corso Magenta (N. 30) we found one of the shop open (they actually have 4 shops in Milano).
Yes ! We could taste that famous ice cream.
We can tell that that one was the best we ever tasted in Italy so far.

This is right around the corner from the Una Scandanavia where I was stayed, very good gelato. I got the strawberry and chocolate and both were good. There are many choices for the chocolate and the signs weren't in English so I couldn't tell the difference. The first time I got a darker chocolate and it was good, but the second time I got what she called a sweet chocolate, it looked more like milk chocolate and didn't like it as much as the first one. The strawberry was good both times.

Absolutely fantastic gelateria, tucked away on a quiet residential street, not far from Corso Sempione. There are plenty of flavors to choose from, all of which are incredibly rich. The Cioccolato Azteco is a spicy chocolate option. My personal favorite is the Mandorle, or Almond flavor…so delicate, with pieces of very finely chopped almonds throughout.

The only minor complaint was the girl serving us - instead of serving our ice creams with a smile (anyone working in an ice cream shop ought to be happy), she was quite impatient, like she couldn't wait for us to hurry up and leave.

Absolutely worth seeking out this shop.
