In view of the summer season and the hot days, one of the most consumed foods to cool down is the ice cream. Artisan or packaged, with fruit or cream, in a cone or in a cup, it is impossible to do without. During the hottest days it will always be time for a break accompanied by a good ice cream!

Among the ice cream parlors in Friuli Venezia Giulia selected and awarded by the famous “Gambero Rosso guide”, 4 are those located in Trieste and which can guarantee you the flavor, originality, creaminess and goodness of your walking ice cream while visiting the city. 

The best ice cream parlors are assigned cones and they range from 1 to 3, as like Michelin stars for restaurants.

And if you are in Trieste, where can you taste the best homemade ice cream? Discover the list of the best award-winning ice cream parlors in the area.

Gelateria Oggi / Oggi Ice-cream shop

In italian the word oggi means today but for this particular ice-cream shop, Oggi is also the acronym of Officina Gelato Gusto Italiano (Laboratory Taste of Italian Ice Cream). The will of the founder Carmelo Chiaramida was to create an ice-cream shop which laboratory was visible in order to be able to clearly notice the processing of  it and the smell of the natural products used. 

Many of the raw materials come from farmers and breeders belonging to the “Campagna Amica” network. They are very attentive to the choice of the final consumer, in order to always offer the quality of the ice cream with fresh and selected products for an extremely creamy result. Thanks to the offer of refined and seasonal flavors with particular attention to local products, they were awarded 2 cones from the “Gambero Rosso guide”.
