Try it once... and you'll become the hostage of this place )))

Got a delicious ice cream from here on my visit to Rome! The man serving was very helpful and let me try the flavours before choosing which ones to have. Would definitely recommend it!

On our last day in Rome (11/27/14) we came across this café and decided to stop in for one more gelato before we left this amazing city. The gelato was delicious, as were the amazing candies they had. However the person working behind the counter is what I'll remember most. Very friendly and as we sat and ate our gelato,... More

Great gelato and great service! As we stood there, staring at all the different flavours wondering what to choose, we got several different taste samples for free.

All sorts of great flavours. One of the best gelato places I've been to. Friendly owner that lets us taste before buying. Would definitely come back.

I go to school across the bridge from Gelateria Il Dolce Sorriso and I possibly get gelato from them 2-3 times a day. The gelato is hand crafted every single morning, there are so many different flavors to choose from, including one's that you would least expect. The staff is remarkable, I have fallen in love with the owner and... More

I discovered this gelateria when I was walking towards the Pantheon and it has been one of the best discoveries yet! I have lived in Rome for one month and have tried at least 20 different gelato places. This is in my top 3 list. The owner was really friendly and open to talking with us. He offered us different...

We followed Tripadvisor's recommendation and it seems that it is right again. Il Dolce Sorriso is a great place to stop and have great ice cream at a fair price. Check out all the special popsicles they have there and try some new flavours

We went in search of this Gelateria on the basis of previous tripadvisor reviews and were so glad that we did. The ice cream was first rate but what made this Gelateria stand out above all the others was the exceptional customer service. The staff were really friendly and treated you like a valued guest (unlike some of the others... More

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.
