The BEST

The best gelato in the world, no lie. Came here 2 years ago and returned today and it was still incredible. Must go if you're near Vatican (or even if you're not)...cheap price and large portions too!!

This tiny kiosk style shop is the best in Rome. Great choice,staff and value for money.We paid 13 euro by the Spanish steps for a mediocre gelato half the size of the ones sold at the old bridge for just 2.50 euro!

The only problem about Old Bridge is that they have so many flavors that you cannot decide! Even the cornet was as it should be, crunchy and not too sweet. Of all the gelatos I had in Italy, this one is among the best ones for sure. If you are in the Vatican City, you should drop by Old Bridge... More

So this was my first 'Italy ice-cream' and I don't think it is fair to judge it as the best but... it was so good! And they filled my cup so so much that I couldn't even finish it and I was really sad about it. We didn't even know the place, we just got in and boy weren't we... More

The ice cream is amazing and not expensive (the regular price in Rome). Everything was perfect while I was having ice cream there... Untill I saw one guy from the staff proving the ice cream twice with the same spoon he had already used... That's the only thing I would ask them to change: Don't put salive in the ice... More

We have recommended our VERY FAVORITE Gelateria in Rome to many - it's a great spot and has great gelato, but most of all has great portions for the price. A must stop. Also their creperie is excellent - nutella and grand marnier - I would almost fly back to Rome just for another one of these!

It is ok ice cream. But you can easily find better ice cream many places in Rome. I recommend Lemon Grass next to Metro Ottaviano.

Fabulous....Yummy....DELICIOUS....CHEAP and quite close to Vatican. Don't let the queue disappoint you. It's worth every minute of waiting for your turn.

This is the best. Great portions. Great selection. Delicious gelato. Wonderful employees. A friend who lives near the Vatican told us about this place. We go there every evening when we are in Rome. The walk to and from the hotel takes care of the calories ...ha.
