Giovanni Gelateria (Paris, France)
8-10 Rue du berger, 75001 Paris, France
Giovanni is an upscale chain of “Maestro Gelaterie” places with almost ten locations throughout France. I visited the one in Paris, in a very touristic spot, opposite the Fountain of Innocents, which normally means expensive but not very good.
I get two scoops in a cone (€5.20): melon and Noisette Piedmontese. The Noisette is creamy and has great taste and some whole hazelnuts. The melon is fresh cantaloupe. The cone is fresh and crispy. A few days later I go back, but this time I get Pistachio and Passion Fruit. The pistachio is creamy and includes real nuts, the passion fruit is extremely fresh and fruity.
Giovanni can truly claim to be a maestro in gelato. They are expensive but excellent!
