Expert review of Gelaaati!

Top-class gelateria, with dozens of flavours made afresh every day.

There’s been an exponential increase in excellent gelateries in Barcelona in recent years, but one of the best is Gelaaati!, owned by Sicilians who make the ice cream fresh every day, using the best possible ingredients (many imported from Italy).

Food and drink: 

The pistachio and hazelnut are my favourite flavours, but the lemon and mint or the strawberry are great on a hot day. Strange-but-good choices include avocado and Roquefort.

Ambience: 

Prepare to peer over the top of the awestruck children whose tiny noses are pressed against the glass of the display cabinet.

Service: 

Unfailingly enthusiastic, and quite happy for you to try as many flavours as you like.

Location: 

Just off the Plaça Sant Jaume in the heart of the Barri Gòtic.

Price advice: 

A small tub with a couple of scoops is 2.50 euros, but large tubs for putting in the freezer can be startling pricey (I handed over 15 euros recently).
