Lato Gelato: "Barcelona's Best Gelato" Local Eating Tip by jhoolko

Local Eating, Barcelona: 48 reviews and 37 photos

All around the city you will find dozens of ice cream and gelato shops, often charging a hefty price for a very small serving. But, if you want a generous helping (2 scoops for 2 Euro), head to Lato Gelato on c/ Ferran just off Las Ramblas. The gelato is the best I have ever had, better than anything I tried in Italy or any ice cream I've ever eaten, and far more affordable than its competitors.

Favorite Dish: Get two scoops in a cone and make sure one of them is the amazing chocolate. The banana is also a surprisingly excellent choice.
