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!

This gelato is delicious and it is in a great location near Piazza Navona. This makes for a great post dinner treat with a stroll around the Piazza.

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.
