Wonderful freshly made Ice-cream for a fantastic price - 2 euros for 2 huge scoops, + white or dark chocolate topping, or whipped cream. We visited 4 times - walking past dozens of other gelaterias to get to this one. On the corner of Via Sora, it's a Rome must see (and eat) all of its own!

Had an opportunity to visit this gelaterio by chance and ended up visiting it everyday during our 5 days stay in Rome! There were scrumptious flavours…. we all could not get enough and wanted more after each visit. The friendly and patient owner with his pleasant staff made it even better overall experience. A must visit!

Had a long walk to reach his place. Good gelato bit not worth the walk. Get it if you are there, but not worth the long walk.

Taken by our tour guide, that claimed is the best gelato in Rome (and yes there are many good ones). Fresh, home made take out, just a small bench for 3-4 max infront of the entrance. Yummy!

Quite frankly, you can't go wrong with gelato in Rome but this place is special. It's tiny and always a line outside. They offer both traditional and unusual flavors. Really fun cones too. Lots of locals here as wel. The stratciatella flavor is excellent. It's in a fun area of Rome to walk around. Also right across the famous pizzeria... More

For €2 you get 3 slabs of the finest ice cream I have ever eaten, topped off with a chocolate coating, that is essential to delay the melting. For quality, value and venue it is the best food experience I have ever had.

Great location near P. Navona and simply amazing, tasty ice cream. Of course, there are dozens of ice cream places in Rome, we tried three and this one was the best. Try it and you will see for your self!

This gelato was one of the best we had in Rome. We took the medium size which was already a massive amount of ice cream with 2 different flavors. The fruit flavor really tastes like real frozen fruit, something like a fresh smoothie but more creamy. The other flavors are extremely creamy and soft, definitely worth a try. The only... More
