And even more - the biggest portion I had anywhere. The service was very good too - the lady there warned me about the choice I made and gave me a sample to taste before decide (life saver :D)

The ice cream was great. I had the tiramisu ice cream, with a scoop of hazelnut... then dipped in white chocolate. Very nice. Would recommend this place. Great value too.

Good quality ice cream with real taste of fruit! We particularly enjoyed the strawberry favour. Also the creamy flavones are great. Try sesame and pistache with saffron! Very nice! As usual in rome you can get your ice cream topped with chocolate sauce or whipped cream at no extra charge!

Just visited when seeing the site around the area. Located on a really pretty cobble alley, this ice cream place was amazing! We had 2 small ice creams, tried a few flavours and was just as cheap as all the other places. We went to one just before the bridge heading to the Vatican and threw them away as they... More

We visited Frigidarium on our second day in Rome, and every time we wanted gelato we always came back (even when we were at the Vatican). They will dip your gelato in chocolate (white or dark) and add cream for free! Make sure you try their signature Frigidarium flavor - there's chocolate cookies inside!

Had to wait in line for about 5-10 minutes, but it was worth it for sure. Best icecream I've tried in my life.

We visited this location in August 2014 on the recommendation of Trip Advisor. Having had other ice cream in Rome, this turned out to be the best and we visited every day. Good value for money and delicious flavours.

My family and I were in Rome staying near Piazza Navona for a week and we visited Frigidarium every day! Tried a couple other gelato places in the area, but nothing compared! Excellent gelato and service! A must go to when in Rome!

Ice cream is delicious here, but gramolata (ice cream made with only fruit and ice) is something really special. Flavours are original and far from usual, and hard to find elsewhere (almonds' gramolata and pistacchio gramolata are superb). Don't miss it if you are around Piazza Navona
