There are so many gelato places in Rome that it is difficult to rate one against the other. But the gelato I had here was delicious, and we also bought a couple of panini that were great. The place is beautiful, the staff friendly, the price fair. Try it!

We enjoyed three visits to Giolitti during our Rome trip, and they were all a hit. Remember to pay first at the cashier, then take your receipt to the counter. We tried all kinds of gelato, which was fantastic, and the servers all had great personalities. It's extra to sit in their dining area and eat, but most people wander... More

Fantastic choice of flavours, good value, good quality and quantity. They have lots of staff to cater for the customer demands so don't worry about the wait. It's not that long and worth the little wait. Enjoy

I tried several gelato's in Rome and this was defiantly my favourite! You have to pay for your order at the till in front, you then get a ticket which you then hand over to the server. The servers do rush you but if they didn't the queues wouldn't move as fast as they did. Just make sure you choose... More

I tried several ice creams in Rome including the one situated a few metres from Giolitti's. Giolitti's still serves the best ice cream in Rome!

Meandered through the tiny roads of Rome to find Giolitti, as it was recommended to us by multiple sources. Upon arrival, we notice a long line, and quickly got in queue. Note: Don't make the same mistake we made, you need to purchase your gelato FIRST, then get in line. Luckily we found out in time, and our spot was... More

Brilliant ice creams! Huge assortment and good value for money! Avoid going in the evenings as the queues are very long. We went in the early afternoon which was a bit better.

My about to be 17 year old daughter has truly become a connoisseur of gelato. We had this recommended by our local landlord and WOW did it score rave reviews. The lines can be a little long but you'll notice very few folks not speaking Italian. The locals know...and this place draws them in huge. Big thumbs up from us.

This was almost an overwhelming gelato experience. You must pay for your ice cream before you can choose your flavors. The shop was very crowded and there were so many flavors to choose from. I ended up picking some flavors that I didn't really like, because I hadn't seen them at other places. I tried the tiramisu, Bailey's Irish cream,... More
