Real Italian Icecream

The gelato is really Italian and really tasty! It worth to try! And the fridge is always full with special ice cream.

That's what i am talking about! What a good hangout place for gelato. Mind you there are just so many customers coming non stop. Simply awesome gelato. For a small 2 scoops cone it costs only 2.25€

We got to "ICaruso" by accident, but certainly it was the best accident we had in Rome :) The gelato and deserts were beutifull and very tasty. The service was kind and the price was affordable.

Theres nothing wrong the more popular chain operations serving great gelato, but this is a step above all respects except range of flavors....

Had to review this place. Another place I went to based on recommendations on the Internet and what fantastic gelato. Is a small shop close to Via Veneto, got nice 2 little benches outside to eat the ice cream. Lady at the counter spoke very good English and helped me decide and translated the flavour names for me as well.... More

Very delicious homemade gelato here with about 10-15 flavors. The scoops of gelato you get are very generous. It's very close to the Londra and Cargill hotel. There are other I Caruso shops around Rome as well, but we didn't visit them.

We were taken to this place by a local guide. I have no previous experience to compare with any other gelateria. I was told not to combine fruit with nuts. I had hazel nut and Chocolate. It was nice and creamy. Very pleasant experience. two portions of two flavours cost 8 euro.

Very close to the hotel and was very busy. People say they work nearby, live a bit away and come only here for the gelato. There are 5 shops around, the owner was there. You can see in the window the peaches which are going to be used for the peach gelato. Extremely busy, 2 benches outside to sit. Worker... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
