If you are in Rome, you can never miss this place. In 2 days, I went 3 times to have gilato ice cream, I tried all berries types, they are so authentic and delicious.

Yummy! And from the line outside you knew it had to be good. Great selection of flavors and ample scoops...bacio and dark chocolate were deliciously creamy.

You've got to have a Giolitti Gelato when visite Rome. So many flavors ... so litle time to taste all of them!! The dark chocolate ice cream was unbeleavable.

This was the best gelato we had on our trip! Authentic and so delicious! The dark chocolate and the Oreo cookie was amazing. I never eat ice cream or gelato because I never find its worth it, but this one was. Stay away from the fake gelato places and eat the real stuff!

When In Rome.....You've got to have a Giolitti Gelato. But why stop at just one ? Our usual hotel is just around the corner from Giolitti and every night we skip dessert at wherever we've eaten, just so we can grab a Gelato on the way back. Whether you go Piccolo (2 Scoops) or Grande (3 Scoops) and whatever of... More

This place has a got a great array of ice cream flavors, be it fruity, "sorbety" or milky... You can't go wrong here. The same applies to granita flavors (slush) and different pastries, both savory and sweet. If you do go...try the orange and limoncello ice cream...

We visited on our last day in Italy. This is an Italian classic, complete with 1940s style (dark wood, marble), a huge selection of flavors, and a system of buying and getting a ticket to give to the gelato guys (the line actually does move fast). The gelato itself was very very good - one of the best we had... More

I went there a copy or of years ago and I thought they were amazing and when I went back this week I realized that they are much better that I remember . They are just on the back of the Fontana de Trevi so it is very crowded and full of tourist and locals make sure you pay before... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
