The cheapest gelateria and best quality I found in Rome. About 10 mins walk from Termini. A large parlour with many tables and chairs, and park-style benches for solo diners. Also has a drinking water fountain inside. Huge choice. 1 euro 60 cents for two small scoops and they offer you whipped cream on top for free. Would definitely return!... More

You can taste delicious ice cream and price is only 2€ for two scoops. This place is near Termini station. This ice cream is homemade product with incredible history: Giacomo Fassi and his wife Giuseppina established this gelato factory in Rome in 1880. Fassi offers ice cream with fantastic classic flavours, such as rice, pistachio and nocciola - hazelnut. The... More

We loved this place - so many choices of icecream and also very reasonably priced!! Wish we had discovered this place earlier in our trip! It is about a 10 min walk from Termini.

So many different flavours to choose from that it's almost impossible! The ice cream is delicious and for two scoops it was only €2! Will definitely be going back when I'm in Rome!!

They had so many flavors and generous scoops. And it was really cheap! A small cup with two flavors for 1.60 euros, a cup with three for... More

Super great gelato with good price! We tried 2 flavors, one is cherry ( I love it), sorry I forgot the other.... The cream on top is for free. The shop is very big and crowed with people, which also tells how famous and good it is!

Ice Cream since 1880, great prices and atmosphere of an old fashion ice cream store. The strawberry is to die for. Try the fresh cream on top. There will always be a line, the tip is you have to pay first.

Worth trying! Freshly made gelato with various choice! I tried the rice taste but don't like it very much. Others are good. Very crowded during peak hours! Tiramisu is not suitable for child. The wine taste too strong even for adult!
