Un' Altra Volta: "Un' Altra Volta - Icy Heaven of Buenos Aires" Un Altra Volta Tip by mircaskirca

Un Altra Volta, Buenos Aires: 1 reviews and 5 photos

In 2002 opened Un' Ultra Volta is a space where tradition is combined with creativity with an aim to offer the amplest quality and, at the same time, to satisfy the most varied pleasures. The customers can choose from the exclusive ice cream, handmade chocolates and pastries to the best Italian style espresso coffee, all made of carefully selected ingredients. The gleaming white and chrome layout makes it seam both futuristic and inviting.

Un' Ultra Volta is a family tradition, which has been perfected over the past 30 years, to obtain a genuine product of delicate consistency and pleasant taste. Flavours are divided into groups: Chocolats, Traditional Creams, Dulce de Leche, Fruits, Genuine and Volta Ligth; each of them contains a wide variety of the finest flavours. The counter staff happily let you have a taste of different ones if you ask. This is certainly the best quality ice cream I have tried in Buenos Aires, the city where the ice cream is some of the best in the world, due to the strong Italian influence.

One thing that is also amazing. You can have ice cream delivered to your apartment while in BsAs. It comes packed with dry ice. I think this is fantastic! For delivery, call free phone number 0810 88 86582. They speak English.

The place is open Sun-Thu 8am-2am, Fri 8am-3am and Sat 8am-4am.

Favorite Dish: Each time I tried some new flavours and all of them were wonderfully intense. But somehow, my favourite were Dulce de Leche Volta (with almonds and hazelnuts covered caramel), Chocolate Amargo (dark chocolate), Marron Glace and Mango. Just heavenly!
