We found this Gelateria while we were walking to our hotel. A lot of people inside, car parking in two lanes in front of the palazzo. We we expected it must be good. Meanwhile we tried it 3 time. All different sorts of ice cream are great. You should try it - its close to the subway-station!

Very turistic place, bad organized and in a dirty street. It's a normal gelato but big portions. Around there you can find much better places for gelato like la romana or ciuri ciuri. Don't go by the name seek for quality!

The best place for ice cream lovers. The ice cream is home made and it is just wonderful... A few minutes walk from vittorio emanuele metro station.

Almost as good as in Florence! Nice patisserie too. Very special ambiance in the parlor where Romans have a drink or ice cream after work.

This is reputed to have the best ice cream in Rome and from what we managed to sample it would be true. The volume of traffic in this ice creamery is testament to the quality as it would have to be located in the dirtiest part of Rome we visited in ten days. Don't be put off going if you... More

If you're looking for the BEST gelato in the world, this probably isn't your place, but if you're looking for somewhere to feed your 2x/day gelato addiction while in Rome on a budget holiday -- you're in luck! Very affordable and they give you SO. MUCH. GELATO. And it's really quite tasty. Yum yum yum. GO HERE.

This was totally worth the subway ride out to. This was by far the best ice cream I've had, and it doesn't break the bank either. For a medium ice cream it's only 2€! My friend and I got ice cream near the trevi fountian and it was 5€ for a small! At this place you get to choose three... More

You can taste very good ice creams, but beware that this is not ancient traditional ice cream maker, it is a proper Factory; they are proud of calling themselves "La più antica fabbrica del gelato in Italia" - "Italy's Oldest Ice Cream Factory" Have a look to the list of ingredients they use! There are natural ingredients - fruits eggs... More

A gelateria dating back from when the area was populated by the "northeners", arriving with the Savoia, and Rome became the capital. It still has that flavor: a very large space, entire families having ice cream. Obviously years have gone by, and now the capital is also crowded with people coming from other parts of the world, not just from... More
