My mum and I were living nearby and we were recommended this place. We found it easily and it was amazing!! We had gelato here every day for the week we were there. 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!

We've tried to sample plenty of ice cream places during our time here in Rome and this one comes out on top. Fantastic prices, a super selection and cheerful, friendly service. We didn't have much queuing or trouble finding a seat. We recommend the chocolate, creme, cassata and Strawberry flavours.

We were blessed and cursed to have our hotel next door to Fassi. It allowed us to enjoy it before we left and as we returned for the day. It was fantastic. The price was more than right 3 Euro for a heaping cup, gelato was so good and the atmosphere really fun. Our favorite was the Rice and Lemon.... More

The Fassi family are in the business since ever. And they work every day from the making to the serving. Super!

Good gelato, but not mind-blowing. I think it's mainly the fact that they are so old and well-established that they attract so many customers. Worth a visit though if you are in Rome. My favourite gelateria remains Caffè del Teatro, in Urbania (PU).

This place has his own history, it looks like 50 or 60 years ago. They have awesome ice-cream, hand made, my personal favorite- pistachio ice-cream, probably best I ever had. And also they're extremely cheap (2 euro for 3 scoops) it's hard to find prices like these.
