Variety of flavor to choose, Best Gelato in my Italy trip

Heard from one of my friend that this is the Gelato house I shouldn't miss and it's so true. Actually, the place isn't hard to find but as the tourist it took my friend and I a while before we find the shop from where we lived (Termini) but it's really worth a walk.

fassi is a vey old ice cream parlor. it holds some of the original recipes from 150 years ago and some original recipes of Cassata ice-cream from Sicily. I love the big machines on display. The whipped cream is amazing. it is made in a traditional form, it is beaten rather than whipped, which makes it light and fluffy.

I got there and the server was very helpful. Spoke English rather well. Translated everything I needed, then scooped me an amazing dish of awesomeness. I got chocolate, coconut, and Coffee and a slice of chocolate/vanilla ice cream cake.

Go and enjoy home-made ice-creams at a reasonable price. The new Chinese inhabitants of the area have joined the traditional Romans and tourists, so the place can get crowded

We were recommended this place but were a bit disappointed on arrival. It was big and modern (I think we had expected it to be small, romantic and quaint) and a bit airport like with loads of metal and plastic chairs and tables everywhere. They had loads of gelato flavours and we were super excited as we had some INCREDIBLE... More

10 minute walk from termini station. Great place with plenty of sitting space. Lots of flavours to choose from. Must try mango and banana - very good. Just choose your favourite first for the cone as that's the one you'll get most of and will go to the bottom of the cone! Only wish the flavours were written in English... More

Absolutely delicious and very well priced gelato! A must try when in Rome. A huge cabinet of every flavour imaginable and plenty of tables to sit and enjoy inside. I'll be back for sure!

This was by far the best ice cream I have ever had. I could have gone back everyday. Well worth searching for, we certainly will be back!!

Staying in Esquilino

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.
