There are different flavours, and the ice creams are made naturally (not the industrial kind). The balance between quality and price is great.

Excellent gelato, easily amongst the best in Madrid if not Europe. Charming and knowledgeable multi-lingual service complements the seasonal flavours. When we were there the season had switched to early Autumn, melon, dulce de leche and nuttier flavours predominated and were deliciously glossy and flavourful....More

Stumbled across this place after a very warm few hours at the palace. As someone that can’t eat milk this place was amazing! I think they had about 5 different flavours that were milk free. My boyfriend and I both had a mix of flavours-...More

The best ice-cream I’ve had since my days of eating gluten and dairy!!! Plus the young woman working was very attentive! El mejor helado desde mis días de gluten y lactosa! Super maja y atenta la chica!

This place has gorgeous tasting ice cream and a good range of flavours! The coffee is great too - my partner and I stumbled upon it and couldn't resist! To top it off, the staff were lovely and helpful as well! :D

We came here directly because of the cannoli and got dissapointed because of the lack of toppings. There were no pistacchio, or chocolate...just some candied fruit and peanut. The taste of the ricotta was ok, but the freshness was questionable.More

Thanks Pamizinha for sharing your experience. We are sorry you were not satisfied 100%. Ricotta is a very fragile ingredient and for this reason we take several measures to preserve its freshness, for example we prepare every morning a few small pastry bags which are...More

I loved the flavor that went by the name of the shop, Zuccaru. It was a blend of basil, lemon and celery. It was light, refreshing and flavorful. My husband chose pistachio and enjoyed it as well.

Close to palacio real is this takeaway we had fantastic natural italian icecream and cafe. For fair prices. Also great vegan options. Imagine zuccaru flavor: orange, apple, mint and cellery. Different, fresh and Subtle. The owner is friendly and gave us some tips for restaurants.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a

side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
