The only bad thing about the Gelateria di Michele is that all the flavours look so irresistible that it’s almost impossible to choose one. You could stand in front of the glass for five minutes and not make up your mind (I did). Maybe that’s why Michele – always patient and helpful – recommends getting multiple flavours to combine in your cone or cup.
Once you finally have your chosen gelato in hand, you’ll realise you were smart to deliberate. The walk-in, walk-out Gelateria di Michele offers rich and natural home-made scoops that manage to avoid tasting too sweet – the trap many ice creams fall into. The selection is small, not like some that overwhelm you with dozens of flavours, but that’s a good thing here. The ice cream is tasty enough that they don’t need to offer an excessive amount of options. As for combining them, try Oreo and coffee together for something unique that you’ll want every time you go back. Michele’s classics such as the chocolate and the mint are exceptional too, and if you’re looking for something outside the box, try the peach, or one of his frozen yoghurt selections. You could also just walk in and ask for Michele’s recommendation; you’re sure to be satisfied.
Gelateria di Michele is a cute and affordable shop to stop in, grab a cone and take a stroll to the nearby Arc de Triomf.
