Whenever I visit Rome, with our without my students, I always drop in at Valentino's. I can't imagine the owner remembers me, but he makes me feel he does. If you like good Italian ice cream, like I do, you'd be pressed hard to find any better. After a few days in 'The Eternal City' I have taken my students... More

The trip advisor badge at the door attracted me to this place. The ice cream was good and a little bit expensive as the area is highly touristy.

Great treat to lift our spirits after the Trevi fountain disappointment. Pistachio was the best we've had thus far. Shop keeper was friendly. Allowed us to sample a few flavors.

Make sure to stop by the gelato shop when in Rome! It was delicious! I had a scoop each of the dark chocolate and mint! Great gelato!

Plenty of chat and banter but that just adds to the experience. The pistachio is the best I have ever tasted. And it is all good value. Arrivederci Valentino.

After a sloppy over sweet ice cream in Tivoli, this parlour restored our faith that Italy is the home of great ice cream!

Charming, funny, and great gelat-skees. The great counter gentleman claimed the pistachio flavor was the greatest of its kind in the world. It was pretty dang good. At first I thought perhaps he was blowing smoke (up my something*), but he continued and gave it some detail. A wee bit of googling proved he's an honest man. Local pistachios, keeping... More

The gelato is good, but far below the best in Rome. It does not deserve the rating it has. It must be because it is located where most tourists walk around that has never tasted what the best Gelato in Italy can taste. And the Mint gelato was green. It is never green when made for natural fresh mint leaves,... More

When I first walked in the owners were very welcoming. They explained the sizes and prices. I even could try a flavor. All of their flavors are excellent!! I highly recommend to stop at this place and try their gelato. They even have a soy gelato option if you cannot have milk.
