The gelato was okay, not the best I've had but the staff was friendly and quick and it's cheaper than food and water from street vendors. If you struggle with decisions, I recommed the strawberry over the chocolate.

Excellent Mango and strawberry gelato....service was ok. Asked for three flavours but ended up only getting two for the 2.50 euro cup. Not sure if server didn't hear me or left it out on purpose. Should have made sure before paying. Serving size seemed on par with friends ordering same size. Friends and family were all happy with their flavours!... More

I've been there several times, near the Vatican, but the price is not high, taste is good! everytime there was many people waiting outside for their gelato. They have another shop in zone Trastevere, also good, all made of natural ingredients so it isn't colorful, but with the natural colors. One of the best in rome!

Amazing gelato here at one of oldest places in Rome! Super friendly staff and amazing simple yet tasty flavours! A medium cup with upto 3 flavours only 2.50 euro! Def not a tourist trap yet! The crape place next door also does amazing savoury crapes (great alternative to pizza)!! Opposite side of the street as you walk to the Vatican... More

Cheap and excellent quality ice cream. Strategically located, a bit crowed, but it doesn't matter! It's worthy! You gotta come here if visiting Rome!

Just great, we went twice in the same day! All flavours we had were amazing, really. There was a big queue in the afternoon. I would recommend to grab one of those to eat while waiting the queue go the vatican museum!
