Good gelato

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!

We certainly ate every last bite of our gelato, but I agree wholeheartedly with another reviewwe who said, "nothing special." Was recommended by our guidebook but we enjoyed gelato from other places much more.

I was in Rome for 9 days. It is gelato heaven and I tried 5 different gelato places. Based on guidebook/web recommendations, went here for their chocolate mousse gelato. Had to come back three different days before I found it open. (Not far from hotel and loved the Pantheon so didn't mind returning. (However, if anybody visits after reading this,... More

Huge fan of their mango icecream! Banana was also good. Cantaloupe had tiny pieces of melon in it; very refreshing taste. Not too excited of the rose flavour though :)

This was recommended by one our guide books (Top 10) but we found nothing special here. The ice cream was good but we have had equally good at home. Next time after we visit the Pantheon we'll check out the gellateri with 150 varieties just to the North.

I have visited Cremeria Monteforte more than 6 times in a period over 3 years and have never been disappointed. Even though it doesn’t offer the huge variety of flavors you find in other gelaterias, you can always be sure you’ll find fresh ice cream and many semi-fredo flavors. Flavors on offer change from time to time, if you find... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
