Great gelato

I loved the fact that the flavours available depend on the (natural) ingredients available. The ice cream was delicious and the service was extremely friendly. The lemon was especially good.

Not the closest to the Trevi fountain but worth looking for it. Fair amount of flavours. The highly recommended dried frigs or honey weren’t available. So went for the Barolo wine with cinnamon instead. Absolutely delicious. Smooth, creamy, full of flavour. Don’t look any further for a proper gelato italiano. 2wanderers.com

With some different tastes this place is good if you are into real Italian gelato. I had the one with marrain and it was to die for! The portions are a bit small but it's worth a try!

Very interesting flavours to choose from, which I gather they're famous for. I tried the 'date' ice cream which was rather divine. Everything sounded amazing.

Good service and plenty of choice. No seating area though and it's more expensive than similar places we went to, like a third more money without a third more ice cream.

Although the ice cream is good, the guy serving ice cream was extremely rude with my 85 years old grand mother, such a bad experience... Be sure we'll never buy nothing there anymore!

While definitely not the best gelato ever (like some other reviewers seem to suggest) they do have some alternative flavours. A tad expensive given the scoop size but pretty good.

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
