We visited based on all the reviews and were not disappointed! Great flavours and portion size - definitely worth the walk!

Best Gelato in Rome and trust me we sat out on a mission to try them. Personal favorites of my family included baccio...we would try another place but always ended up coming back here in the evenings! Always a line out the door, so that tells you something and awesome service as we fumbled our way around in ordering!

This place was our first gelato when coming to Rome. We stayed near the Pantheon, so this was a little bit of a walk for us, but it is not too bad if you have dinner first near the Piazza Novana. Many different flavors, but beware they will all be in Italian, so you really aren't sure what is in... More

Without a doubt, these are the best ice cream I've ever had. As I think of them that remind me of Italy and Rome.

We were lucky to have our dinner around the corner in Piazza Navona and tried the much talked about gelato. It was one the best ones we had around Italy. Definite Try!

This is a small storefront on a small street. The gelato is execellent - be sure to try the Frigidarium flavor. There are few benches outside. This is one of the best gelaterie in Rome.

I have tried a lot of places, and this is at lest one of top 3 in Rome. There are others with a good score here on TA that does NOT deserve it. This is a MUST for people who love top quality gelato!

Amazing gelato and the best value in Rome, just down the road from Piazza Navona in a lively restaurant and bar filled area. The 'frigidarium' flavour is mind blowing!

I love icecream. I had an icecream there the first night and went there all other nights. Lots of flavours to choose from, well priced, big portions and incredibly yummy. Go there if you can :)

Tiny little place a few hundred yards from Piazza Narvona. Really creamy ice cream. My favourite - 3 scoops decent size, 3 Euros. Rum & Raisin, dark chocolate, Coconut then topped in either cream or melted chocolate. We walked past a few ice cream shops to get here the second time. Shame they don't export to the Uk!
