We have been coming here for many years and still consider this to be the best. The ice creams range from a simple scoop to the most elaborate dish. My wife works her way through the menu over 2 weeks and whilst I don't indulge everyday I am increasingly finding them harder to resist. They serve lovely cold beer ( my daily indulgence) and plenty of other food and drinks. You can keep up to date with sport, read a newspaper or just watch the world walk by.

Located close to the harbour and beneath the brilliant Hotel Europa it is very conveniently placed. Open quite late as well.

Erwin and his very efficient team are happy to help and will certainly put a smile on your face when they place my favourite, Coppa Christallo in front of you.

Only had breakfast once in the hotel after discovering this place. So cheap with a huge array to choose from plus fresh juice and Proseco. The view was good as well.

Opposite the clock tower and beside the ferry stop this was a lovely place to stop and have a drink. We only had a cappuccino with cream and a latte macchiato, but they were very nice. The Aperol Spritz looked amazing with the extra nibbles! Will be going back to try them!!

A great place for people watching only 50 meters from the Ferry Terminal at the top of lake Garda. An added bonus for us was that our Holiday Company gave us a card for 10 per cent off at "Cristallo's" The staff here work really hard and are professional and friendly. The star of the show is without a doubt the "Icecreams." We would go there most mornings for a coffee and a read of the Newspaper. They have a copy for customers. For the "HiTech" there is also a pretty fast broadband connection which is free if you must keep in touch with the world...Sitting there with the stunning Lakeview enjoying a coffee, lunch or an evening drink surrounded by the busy "Buzz" of the lifestyle is perfect. Some nights there are either live music in the square about 100 meters away across the lake or entertainers performing. Always the people sauntering around with children, dogs and through the day the "Lycra clad Bikers". A popular sport here. We found that the food was excellent and ideal for lunchtime. A cracking caffe.

We received a recommendation for coconut ice cream and my goodness it didn't disappoint. Such good value, and the best I've tried!
