The chocolat ice cream in this place was as tasteful as a very expensive chocolat mousse! Sensationally good, give it a try!

Having tried ice cream in many different places in Rome, this gelateria was by far the best one. Was recommended to me by an Italian friend. Delicious, flavoursome... and huge servings!

As we know Rome is the city of ice cream. But this spot is the best on ice cream in the town. It is really close to the northern border of the Vatican city. Small shop but beautiful hand made ice cream.

Our daughter studied in Rome and this was her favorite gelato place so she took us there when we visited. Service was great, flavor was wonderful, portions very generous and price -- much less than anywhere else we had Italian ice cream! Well worth a visit.

Saw a line up after our visit to the Vatican. Excellent portions and the peach, blackberry, lemon combo we ordered was fresh and tasty. Worth a stop by.
