Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

An Italian ice cream parlour and tearoom finds a niche in expensive yet inventive home made ices.

A chic hybrid of ice cream parlour and tearoom near the Odéon square, this Italian gelateria offers a vast array of home made ice creams (from €5.30 a scoop) and sorbets (from €4.80). Expensive they may be, but each ice is exquisite. Whether it’s the vibrant green of the pistachio, the mango’s bright yellow glare or the coquettish strawberry pink, there’s absolutely no shortage of colour here, but it’s the more out-there, yet perhaps less immediately striking varieties that really stand out. These include the salmon sorbet (unexpectedly refreshing, though perhaps a touch sickly after more than one scoop) and the wonderfully creamy, flavourful Croccante Siciliano (pistachio, almond and honey). Oh, and forget the bland cardboard taste of all those shoddy supermarket cones – here, the receptacle comes with a delightful buttery crunch.
