An excellent gelateria with families in mid. Affordable, large servings with tones of flavour. The flavours changed each night but the specialities remained. The people behind the counter were kind and patient - even when kids couldn't decide. They spoke gently and described the flavours - often with a taste on a spoon to help you choose. €1 per scoop...

Loved the icecream. The options for cream or chocolate toppings make the whole thing decadent and lovely. Great selection of tastes.

I wanted something sublime from this place and got just so-so. The chocolate and mint flavors were overbearing. My teeth hurt after only a small. The texture was also a strange gooey consistency. Not terrible, but there can be found much better in Rome.

This is an excelent place to have, in my opinion, one of the best gelati in Rome! It is a place to come back every time you visit the city.

Very good gelati, 30+ flavoiurs, generous servings starting from 2 euro. First time, I made the mistake of asking for a medio with caffe and banana with pieces in it. After that, I ordered the piccolo, which was still large by other standards. I did check out another gelateria in Trastevere which has a slightly higher TA rating, but it... More

In my opinion one of the best Gelaterias in Rome, as wear as great value for money. I went for four scoops, got a cookie stuck in the top and it covered in dark chocolate sauce, all for €4, money well spent.

We came here after being recommended from a local tavern owner and seeing the reviews on tripadvisor. We had gelato everyday on our trip and sometimes several times in a day due to the kids, so I was gelatoed out! At first it was a little hard to find because it is small, but all you have to do is...

This place came highly recommended, and it did not disappoint! Many delicious flavors and friendly service. Unfortunately (:-) it was right across from our apartment, so we found ourselves there three times over three days. No inside seating, only a couple benches outside.

In a three day trip to Rome I visited everyday! The man running the place was very passionate about his product. And even stayed open late on one occasion to serve me. The gelato was of a great creamy texture. Highly recommended.

Some of the best Gelato we had in Rome. Locally made. Large selection. Found by accident wandering around. Would eat here again.
