Great Gelato

Definitely worth a visit. Great value and a large selection of flavours. With so many vendors in Rome no one can objectively claim to be best, But this is certainly one of the best.

Great ice cream (but not the best I had in Rome, see my other reviews). Small placein the city center, you can sit at a small bench outside.

Great ice cream at a very decent price. Especially like the fact they dunk the ice cream in melted chocolate. Great for dessert.

Oh my, this is simply AMAZING! You need to go there now. Super cheap and really tasty. The mango was to die for. They will also cover your gellatto in dark chocolate if you ask, and you should ASK!!!!!!

Went here after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed! The best ice cream I have tasted (and I am an ice cream lover). The customer service was brilliant - allowing you to try the different flavours before buying and the price was unexpected. It cost €3 for three large scoops which are then covered in melted...

This is probably the best deal in a very expensive city in a very popular part of Rome. For 2€ you can get a good sized gelato with two flavors and dipped in chocolate or add whipped cream for no additional charge. Worth the effort to find this place!!

I've had some great ice cream in my time but this place takes it! The best bit is it doesn't cost either! Three massive scoops for €3. Not like other sellers in the city that use marble sized scoops. Just go, you won't regret it.

we passed this place a number of times and after threatening to go in we finally had an ice cream here on our last night - OMG - amazing - fabulous ice cream, the flavours were amazing. We didn't have the whipped cream or the dipped in chocolate topping. - which do look amazing, just stunning homemade gelato.

This place was located on a very cute street (lots of cute bars/restaurants nearby) and had the BEST gelato I've ever eaten. I have been to Italy 5 times and eaten Gelato almost every day, and this place is hands down the BEST. Bonus: they put hot chocolate on top and it freezes on the gelato creating a chocolate shell,...
