This is next to Vatican museum and you might think it is a tourist trap. Not at all! The ice creams are delicious - we tasted mango, melon, coconut, stawberry - and at very reasonable price. Definetely worth a stop if you are around Vatican.

Hands down, this is the best gelato in Rome, and I tried them all! I loved their coconut flavor. They give you huge scoops, and the guys serving are very friendly. Don't miss it if you're in the Vatican area.

We visited here after a tour of the Vatican.The line was a bit long but moved very quickly. I had the ricotta pistachio gelato and am still thinking about it a month later. Don't be afraid to try their unique flavor combinations they are all delicious! Portions were very generous and filling.

One of the best gellato in Italy. This place is just out side of the Vatican museum. Its a treat to have a Gellato here. One must eat if visiting Vatican.

Ice cream made by hand in the shop surpasses all the other shops around. Easily the best and the servers keep the wait fairly short compared to other places.
