La Piazzetta scores big time with its exquisite fruit ice cream. This ice cream shop on KurtSchumacher-Platz, across the street from the shopping center Clou, works with a professional Italian ice cream chef and that's a difference you can taste! It is really hard to decide what is more tasty: the intense mango ice cream, the creamy banana ice cream or the refreshing pineapple one.
Worth mentioning is also their pistacchio ice cream - not screaming green in colour like in many other ice cream parlours, but rather inconspicuously coloured and extremely rich in taste - a good hint that real pistacchios are used as an ingredient and no colourants. The creamy hazelnut ice cream has big hazelnut chunks in it.
The card features a lot of ice cream cups for children with funny images like Mickey-Mouse ice cream, Pinocchio or Maya the Bee, decorated with Smarties. Sweet crepes with vanilla or yoghurt ice cream are in stock for the grown-ups, as well as big fruit cups. Next to the well-known classics like Banana Split and Spaghetti Ice Cream, you can sample specialties like the Tiramisu Cup or the After-Eight-Cup.
The ambience of the shop is friendly but mainly functional. Seats are available both inside and outside, however you shouldn't be too sensitive when it comes to street noise outside. The shop is located directly on Kurt-Schumacher-Platz - the guests sit in the middle of crosstown traffic.
