The Best Gelato in Rome

I went to Fassi with friends. At first we got lost, we asked the way from an Italian man. He is so kind helping us to find the way. It takes 10 mins walking from Termini. It is a big Gelato Shop. It is closed on Mondays. The Fassi has various tastes of gelato. There are also chocolate with gelato... read more

I have been there on several occasions and even though the interior is a bit like a train station I like the place. The many choices of ice cream are very good and it is a fun people watching place. Students, tourists and locals alike go there.

Despite the cold weather there was a steady steam of people, locals and tourists. The choice is fantastic and the servings large. The ice creams are delicious and in addition it was five minutes walk from our B&B. We didn't try other places to eat ice cream in Rome so are unable to compare but with €3 for a large... More

Oh my, the lemon!... Oh my, the strawberry! Oh my, the hazelnut!... Not expensive at all (large 3 flavour cup or cone with chantilly and a wafer cone for 2€), pleasant place, fast and efficient service. It is the oldest icecream factory in Rome, and without a doubt, the best there is.

The owner gotta teach their waitresses and waiters 'how to serve their customers'. Their attitude disgraced the taste of fine gelatos. Rather, wanna recommend to visit GROM(Franchise one).

Wasn't the best gelato we had while in Italy but was still very good and a good value. Didn't care much for the atmosphere of the place though it was large and many tables to sit down. The staff wasn't very helpful.

Read the reviews, went all excited. Thoroughly disappointed! I have had gelato now across Italy, and had some pretty amazing product. In terms of price it was inexpensive at 1.60€ for a small cup, with a variety of flavours. But the problem was that the flavours just tasted really GENERIC and AVERAGE. The staff didn't help the situation, as none... More

During 3 days in Rome been here...hmmm...more than 3 times lol. Absolutely loved it! Prices are great, flavours are great and you can experience real Italian atmosphere here. Not as many tourists as Italians inside. Someone local recommend it to us and let me say:big thanks for that! First you have to queue to pay,then you will get a ticket... More

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
