delicious ice-cream, incredible value

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... read 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

Although this place serves great ice cream it's let down by the staff, we found them to be extremely ignorant towards tourists, you would stand in line waiting to be served and they would look past you and serve Italians standing behind you. Was it not for the staff this place would get a perfect rating, but because of the... 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.
