If you want to go where all the tourists go, Giolitti. If you want to go where the locals love... it's still Giolitti! Always crowded, overflowing at peak times, long lines to pay and even longer lines to order (unless you sit at a table and pay the supplement) but the service is efficient and the gelato is simply superb....

The legendary cafe is always bustling with tourists trying to get hold of a cone of the exceptional gelato. And it is definitely worth the trouble!

My husband and I visited this gelato shop twice during our stay in Rome on a recommendation by Rick Steves. The set-up is a bit confusing, as you pay first, receive a ticket, and then proceed to the counter to order your gelato. I would highly recommend the pistachio gelato - it was by far the best gelato I have... More

Was told about Giolitti's by various people, local and tourists. We walked past it many times but it was always packed and couldn't be bothered with fighting through the crowd. Finally got to it at a quiet time and I can see why there are big queues. The selection is great, not as vast as some places but the flavour... More

This Geletaria is in a quiet street not so easy to find, but look for it, it worths totally. The fruits savor are incredibles as the others like classical chocolate or vanilla. Try nutella, tiramisu ... A really good address for an Ice Cream

You have to go there with a dictionary if you don't know italian! The variety of the ice creams is huge and sadly they are all in Italian! But a fool-proof choice would be pistachio ice-cream, it's loaded with pistachio and it tastes out of this world! It's just a very short walk way from Piaza Navona. Be careful that... More
