Crowded

Really love the taste. Many asians here. The ice cream bar is really crowded and we have to wait quite long to get served. But still worth it :-)

A true palace of ice cream and I have never seen such a collection of flavours. Rice, marron glacé as well as the usuals. And such a reasonable price, 2 Euro for a Medio. Definitely worth searching out...

This 1950's style gelato shop was within walking distance of our hotel & we visited 3 times during a 4 night break! Excellent value for money 3 scoops of delicious gelato & topped with cream in a cup or cone for €2 & lots of other options too. Flavours were true & the gelato refreshing in the baking hot sunshine.... More

Wow. What can you say about the ice cream and frozen drinks here ? A veritable palace of ice cream, perhaps the best in Rome. As we were close by in our hotel, we had dessert here every night. And its packed. Come before 9pm to spend the least time in line. The only criticism is the way you have... More

We just finished our second visit in less than 24 hours to Fassi! And the second time, we were all the way over by the Spanish Steps but the kids still wanted to walk all the way to Fassi rather than stopping elsewhere. Both times, we all got the medium cones with the choice of 3 flavours. Only €2 for... More

We stayed very close to Gassi but didn't go there till the last day! When we went mid afternoon it was a bit crowded. The queues were a bit haphazard. But worked okay considering it is Italy. Option of cup or cone with one or more scoops. Cappuccino at a price of 1 Euro is a bargain!! I think that... More

Simple review, was staying at the Taormina a couple of doors down from here, stayed 4 nights, visited here 3. Simply the best ice cream I have ever eaten. There are large cues and a slight language barrier but honestly it is worth it. If you're in Rome please visit!

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.
