Amazing gelato!

We've had gelato at least once a day for the four days we've been in Rome, and this is easily the best. A tiny little store just off Piazza Navona, and would be easy to miss if it wasn't for the queue of both locals and tourists. A decent range of both more normal and their own extravagant... read more

This place was close to our furnished apartment and it was always full of ppl waiting to eat. The queue is always at least 5 persons. We had gelato in other places in Rome and it was good but this one is just divine !!! Gelato dipped in melted chocolate that turns instantly into settled chocolate on top of the... More

...then you will leave with a lasting memory :) Us Finns are no strangers to high quality ice cream, so visiting Italy offers us many possibilities to enjoy ice cream that just might be a bit tastier than our own. And without a doubt I can admit that Frigidarium's gelato is out of this world. If I remember correctly their... More

We were wandering back from the vatican to our hotel near the pantheon and passed by here purely by chance. The queue outside was huge and quite unorganised but we joined it and within a few minutes were being served by the lovely and very efficient ladies !! Huge choice and HUGE servings, we both had small but with different... More

I was looking for an ice-cream place to have dessert after lunch with my friends, so i did my research on trip advisor, don't regret it! Definitely best ice-cream ever. You'll have to make a line but its worth the wait, prices are reasanable and even though you don't get time to get to choose the flavor because its so... More

Whenever we passed this place there was a queue! But I have to say, after trying the ice cream here, the queue is well worth it!! Lots of choice, efficient & patient staff. Great place!

Well worth the wait. Both locals AND tourists come here. As I knew I would be eating Gelato most days, I picked the smallest 2 euro tub. Even at that you have the choice of two flavours plus price included option of cream, white or milk chocolate on top. The chocolate gets poured on top of the ice cream and... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
