We tried the others, including the best according to friends and family, and none matched the flavors and textures at Old Bridge. The coffee was... More

The best Place to eat Ice Cream in Rome - the price is low, the quality is good, its just around Vatican City, a lot if flavors, the staff is friendly and the queue is fast!

They have a good variety of ice cream flavours and also sizes of tubs and cones. The service was quick which was good as it was very busy. I did enjoy my ice cream but the salted caramel did not really taste as it should.

Do yourself a favor - If you are in the area of the Vatican stop over and taste this gelato. You won't be disappointed. Be prepared to wait!

Located right behind the corner out side of the Vatican (follow Via Leone IV and then turn) You can choose the container beginning from 2eur for the small one and so on. The scoops are XXL!!! The ice cream is very delicious. Try the walnut! Yummy! Worth the little standing in line to get an ice cream...

This is a mandatory stop when visiting the Vatican! Just so! The caramel gelato is to die for! Could be a long queue, but it moves along quickly.

We tried the most popular pistachios and chocolate cherry and would recommend pistachios. The service staff speaks good english and was very helpful in giving directions.

We stayed in Rome for 3 nights (next door at Rhome Hosting - also recommended!) and visited Old Bridge twice. Huge portions, a decent price and the Nutella flavour is incredible! The queues say it all (service is very good so you won't be waiting very long). The view of tourists, nuns and Roman locals all queuing for their Old... More
