Amazing gelato

I'm really picky with my ice crem since i live in Rome, but i was amazed. It's so good even though it's so close to the vatican. 2€ for 2 flavours (which is totally enough), rice and ricotta with pistacchio were super good. I highly recommand this Gelateria.

If you are visiting Vatican City, you must stop by to sample their fabulous gelato, conveniently situated between a visit to St. Peter's and the museum. A wide selection of ice creams, generous portions, and great flavours! We had cookies and cream and baci - both divine!

Long queue but worth it. Good taste with reasonable price. 2 euros and you'll have cone loaded with generous gelato and whipped cream on top. My favorite is pistachio.

This was our first visit to Rome. I read the horror stories about "expensive" gelato (overcharging customers) so I truly checked around to find out where would be a good place to try a gelato in Rome. I found this place via YouTube -- actually a Priest, Father Roderick Vonhogen (the "podcasting priest") from the Netherlands has a Youtube video... More

We loved the gelato here! There are so many wonderful flavors to choose from, and they give you a lot of gelato for the price. We tried several flavors and enjoyed all of them. It's a great place to stop for a treat after visiting the Vatican!

The portions are huge - even for the small size. The quality was good, not great, but it is an excellent value (2 euros for the small). And, they provide whipped cream on top. Definitely worth a trip when you are near the Vatican.
