Best gelato

We went here every day on our recent Rome trip. There are so many choices of flavour, they are all delicious and the prices are brilliant. We opted for the €2 waffle cone, which you got 2 different flavours with and either dipped in chocolate or cream.

There is typically a line, but it's worth the wait. Nice flavor selection, and the texture is very good.

Fantastic ice cream coated in dark chocolate. Simply the best in Rome. Worth waiting for the queue, just goes to show how good it is!

Unlike the previous reviewer, I am by no means an expert on assessing the quality of ice cream or gelato. (It is rare that I do not like whatever I taste.) Nor have I widely sampled the offerings in Rome as I try to limit my sugar intake. Nevertheless, for a number of reasons I decided to break down and... More

forums and blogs mention this place a lot - i have now learned to not trust any of those now after seeing this. we took a food tour and were taken to an all-natural, organic, artisanal gelateria where we learned about what is important for good gelato and how to recognize it. later when we came by frigidarium we could...

This is a great gelato for a great price! Flavor and texture is very nice, not too sweet and you can choose to put chocolate or cream on top for no extra charge!! If you see it, try it!

We stopped here by accident and saw the trip advisor rating on the wall. The gellato was to die for, we also had a Belgium Waffle that was made to order. There are tons of gellato places but this is definitely worth trying.

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.
