Finally got to try the famous chocolate ice cream from Awfully Chocolate that came in a adorable take out box and nice spoon! Single scoop, $3.80. From what I understand, they use milk chocolate. The ice cream was dense, wasn’t too sweet, and pleasantly enough has just that slight bitter edge. Definitely good chocolate ice cream and convenient for your chocolate fix with several outlets around!

Italians were just taking their time to enjoy some caffe or dessert after eating, we had wine every meal, dined by the river and had a wonderful time. Do note that many restaurants have cover or service charges but you can still spot some without!

Very nice tiramisu, though there seems to be some custard included.
