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

Had 4 flavors: chocolate, pistach, walnut and egg. Icecream was tasty but to say it has the best in Rome...i dont think so. But prices are very acceptable and quality is good. Also the fact you have free drinking water is nice option. Would recommend.

If you (like me) like Ice Cream, then you'll love Italian Gelato, but where to go to fine the best is difficult as Gelato shops are 10-a-penny in Rome. However, we were very fortunate to find this little (actually not so little) gem literally 2 minutes from our Hotel (Hotel Lussemburgo), which turnde out to be the best of the... More

One of our goals this trip was to find the best gelato in Rome. I think we found a winner. Nobody's Caffe or Pistaccio came close, the Hazlenut (nocciola) and the Cioccolato were also second to none. And the price? Unbeatable.

After reading some previous reviews, I went in search of this gelateria expecting to find a small, quiet place. It was neither of those things, we had to wait a while for service, which, when it came was very friendly and attentive. The gelato was lovely, and if you want the few extra calories, was served with whipped cream on... More

Upon arriving at our hotel one of the immediate questions we asked was for some good gelato bars in the city. Instantly our receptionist mentioned Fassi's. Explaining to us it is the oldest in Rome and some of the best gelato. We started our 10 minute walk to find Fassi's expecting to get there and find an overpriced, over-modernised horrendously...
