Biggest problem is what to choose. Many great options. We were a family of four, and all were happy.

There is a reason traditional ways become traditions. The quality of the products that Signor Volpe creates are indicative of his adherence to those ways. Local, fresh, natural ingredients and attention to detail make this a necessary stop for any afternoon or evening gelato craving. Quite possibly the best I have ever had. Very gracious host as well.

I stopped here nightly for a late night Gellato during a week's stay in Rome. The best banana gellato around. Mixed berry was a hit as well. I liked that they had a few chairs outside to sit and enjoy my cone.

A great Gelateria near the Colloseo! The ice cream isn't "too heavy" and is very tasty. That's all, five stars.

Being on a strict diet of very low sugar, and after going to numerous gelato places in Milan, Florence, and Siena trying to find any sugar free, I happened upon La Dolce Vita, 306 Via Cavour in Rome. Finally, instead of just watching my family enjoy many gelatos in the other cities, I could finally enjoy some at last!!!! Sweetened... More
