We were in Rome for a week. Everyday for 5 days, we ended our day at Old Bridge. The Ricotta Pistachio was the best! In the dead of winter, this place rocks!

Everyone in Rome seems to know about this place. One of the guards at the Vatican gave us directions on how to get here and when we finally found it we didn't really understand all the buzz about such a tiny hole in the wall. But it's truly amazing gelato! So tasty, massive scoops, and so many flavours for so... More

This place was described to me as having the best ice cream in Rome. I am not going to go try all the others but certainly it proved to be well worth the visit. Near St. Peter's square it looks very ordinary from the outside. Most of the time there is a queue but again i repeat it is well... More

The Old Bridge Gelateria is a small place outside the Vatican Museum that almost always has a line out the door. It's about as cheap as gelato can get with big servings and some of the best gelato we had in Italy. A great stop after lunch or leaving the Vatican Museums.

I really like the mango one! It has been years since last time I taste a nice mango since I've been living in uk for a few years but this one do taste like actual mango. The pistachio one is also no doubt my favorite in years, creamy and nutty. Anyway it's amazing. Will be better if there's other smaller... More

This small place on the route between St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museum is an excellent stop for a rich, cool treat after a long afternoon spent exploring the museum. The flavors are rich and decadent. The ricotta pistachio flavor is not to be missed. There is a piazza nearby where you can sit and enjoy your treat. Prices... More

I spotted this gem while waiting in the never-ending line to the Vatican Museum. They have multiple flavors and the service was great. I highly recommend the Nutella but all of the gelato I tried was fantastic. In fact, it was so good that my husband and I went back every night during our trip. Be mindful that the line... More

Simply put, if you visit Rome you have to try Old Bridge gelato. It's unlike any gelato I've ever had. It's melt in your mouth, creamy goodness. I've never tasted gelato like this before. If I'm ever back in Rome, this is the first place I'm going...

We visited this Gelato place 3 times during our visit to Rome, the flavour is soo rich! The scoops are a little bit insistent in terms of size though. Overall wonderful experience at this Gelato place!
