Best gelato we had in Rome!!

Oh this guy's gelato is heavenly! He makes it fresh every day and you can absolutely taste that! A friendly and kind owner, just a little place up a side street by the Pantheon. The best gelato we had in Rome, including from Giolotto, which is so popular. This place has fewer flavors, but that's... read more

One of best ice creams in Rome! Next to pantheon, historical place to eat (that is actually everywhere in Rome), for examples on stairs in front of pantheon.

We ate a lot of gelato on our trip. This was my favorite place. The gentlemen running the register was very kind. On my second trip there he gave my kids an extra scoop of gelato for free. And it was very good gelato!

The place is right next to the Pantheon, so lots of tourist. Just average so many other better places. Just walk up the side streets. The guy in the place was also rude to our 11 & 12 year old boys.

Love this spot near the Pantheon! Really fresh flavors including rose and fig. And the widest selection of granita and non-dairy gelato that we encountered (mixed berry! almond! fig!). We went as often as we could.

I really like this place near the Pantheon, for the owner, location, and delicious gelato. There is panna added for no cost and a wafer cookie. But the best treat on a hot day can also be found here, esp. if you are having a lot of gelato and need to try something different. This place has excellent cremolati which... More

My wife and I sampled gelato from quite a few different shops in Venice and Rome on our trip last year, and this one stood out from the rest. Definitely the best gelato we tried in either city. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The Rose flavor was unique and delightful, especially when paired with the Dark... More

After touring the Pantheon, we enjoyed our gelatos from here. It's a small Gelateria on a side lane from Pantheon - you come out of Pantheon and take the first left. Full of calories but yum!

We had some of the best gelato ever at the Cremeria Monteforte. They were very patient as we agonized over all the tempting flavored. as mentioned in a previous review the limone (lemon) was superb! My mom really enjoyed the banana and strawberry, and the chocolate was wonderful too!

One of the best ice creams I've ever had. We went there two days in a row because it was so good! The gelato is so fresh and pure; the passion fruit gelato REALLY tastes of passion fruit, the lemon, mango, coffee, the dark chocolate... You get the picture. Big recommendation from here!

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.
