Sorrento: GELATO: Bougainvillea

Corso Italia

Reviewed by: Mandric from England, review #1865

When: 2006

Your favourite gateaux scooped up into a cool cone! Worth skipping a meal for! These ices are something else! Perfect for the chocoholic or cake fan in summer.

This Pasticceria Gelateria Bar/Restaurant is just what we needed on a warm day when we were beginning to feel parched on our walk heading back to our hotel. Instead of having a meal however, we decided there and then to refresh ourselves with the delectable ice-creams on display instead. We could have sat and eaten inside, but preferred to take a scenic walk home with a hand held cone each.

What a treat not to be missed. The ice-creams are displayed like frozen gateaux, beautifully decorated and absolutely deliciously filling and refreshing at once! It was thoroughly wicked to just watch the seller plunge his scoop into these thick lemon or chocolate or nutty magnificent handmade sculptures. There were, to name only a few, banana and other fruit varieties, various chocolate or mocha types, and the option to sit and try the other sweet or savoury dishes with a coffee was still available! At 1 euro each for two huge dollops of ice-cream cake in a cone, or 2 euro for a larger cone, one is totally spoilt for choice. Highly recommended.
