So good we had to go twice to make sure!

Creamy and smooth with no ice crystals like others we tried. Flavours are great with a wide selection, no need to taste they have labels that state what they are clearly and they are true to their taste. After Eight and Nutella flavors definitely get my vote. There is limited seating if you've had... read more

I have searched far and wide in Rome and this is the only place I have found that carries sugar free gelato. The have both chocolate and vanilla and both are quite good. The texture is smooth and the Flavors are rich with no hint of bitterness. My wife and son have also enjoyed the chocolate chip, strawberry, coconut, pineapple,... More

We had a lovely relaxed experience here and thoroughly enjoyed our ice cream. We even got to sit at a table in the cool gelateria on a hot day.

I have to say this was the best gelato I had in Italy. The price was good also. We were there with a group and had to wait for 30 people to get gelato and the staff kept trying to shoo us away. We couldn't sit at the tables with just gelato and one woman was even yelled at for... More

We ended up eating gelato here three times during our stay. The gelato was good, the price was outstanding (touristy part where they seem to mark everything up), and the owner was kind and patient. It's right near the Colosseum and there's a neat Vespa rental right next door called Bici and Baci.

Surprisingly, of all the little Gelato shops in Rome, and there are literally hundreds, this one is the best. You can definitely tell the difference. Try the others then try this one.

Nice place for an early evening ice cream. Not far from colosseum. Good range of flavours - just 2 euros for small tub of two flavours. Enjoyed biscotti and crema. Eat outside on bench and enjoy this neighbourhood.

I've been trying various pistachio gelatos in rome, and this one was the most disappointing! It tasted quite fake, and even the colour did not look natural! Would not come back here despite the low prices.

We discovered this place while roaming around trying to find our way around in the area. On seeing the length of the line waiting we had to try it...must say I can still think of it ...was one of the best ones I have had!

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
