When in Tagbilaran City, forget about your usual Selectas or Nestles and opt for a cup of gelato instead. Go to Gelateria Milano on the 4th floor of BQ Mall and simply indulge.
This has got to be one of Bohol’s hidden delights. These gelatos are a creation of a young man in his twenties, Paolo Rigotti, whose mother is Filipina and father a Swiss-Italian. Some of his usual flavors are Torone (almond with honey), Stracciatella (cookies & cream), Ciocolate (chocolate), Tiramisu (mascarpone cheese), Nociola (hazelnut), Pistachio (pistachio seeds), Fragola (strawberries), Ananas (pineapple) and of course, Peanut Kisses and the ever-popular Ube!
They also serve other beverages and play great music. Indeed, a cool place to chill out, especially with those heavenly gelatos!
