Following our visit to Joaquims, the kids convinced us to go for an ice cream. Just a short stroll along the road and you will find Da Vinci – an Italian ice cream parlour. All the ice cream is home made on the premises and is absolutely delicious.
It was very busy on Saturday night and by then it was gone 11pm (but that’s still early by Spanish standards). The problem is that there are just so many flavours to choose from that it takes forever to decide what everyone wants…. You can either have a cone (small, medium or large) priced at €2, €3 and €4 respectively or a tub – same sizes, same prices. They also sell a 1L tub which you can take home and put in your freezer for later.. To confuse matters, you can mix the flavours, for example, 2 or 3 flavours in the same cone /tub. Not sure if this makes the decision, easier or harder…
There are a few tables inside and a few more outside where you can sit and eat your ice cream but these were all occupied so, having finally decided on what flavour, (dulce de leche (caramel) and stracciatella (vanilla with chocolate chips), we purchased our ice creams and wandered back to the paseo where we enjoyed them whilst watching the Flamenco show that was being performed.
Da Vinci Heladeria is situated on C/ Duquesa de Arcos 24 in Sabinillas , one street back from the paseo. They are open from Easter until end of the summer. Whether you live here permanently or are just here on holiday, you simply have to try this place..
