They ice cream has a good taste, I personally think chocolate is the best in town. Mango and caramel are not their best. Concluding: if you are close - you shouldn't miss it, but do not walk through the city for it.

Palazzo is definitely worth going out of the way for. We have stopped in here on each of three trips to Rome, and we have never been disappointed. It is usually quite crowded, but there is plenty of seating on the inside. You simply pay first and then select your favorite gelato. My favorite is usually the fragola, but this... More

What a vibrant place. Went on a Saturday, grabbed a pizza feom a vendor and some fruit, spent less than 5 euros. You really get to see how the everyday roman shops. Neat place.

We stumbled across this place and loved it. The prices were good and there seemed to be a lot of locals I there as well as tourists which is a good sign. The long history and displays made the store interesting to visit too.

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.
