They have a big trip advisor sign out front to attract tourists so I went in to see what all the fuss was about. The gelato was no better than most other places, and when I went to use the bathroom, they claimed it was broken.

Italy is world wide known for its pasta, pizza and ice creams!!! But althought most of them area really good, those you can eat at the "Gelateria Dolce Vita" are really something to talk about. They are home made, really creamy, delicious, smooth, and they have a variety of flavours. All of them are great, my favourite: amarena, it left... More

I loved their variety of Gelato. They were very friendly offering great service. This location is a short walk from the Colosseum. I would definitely recommend. I stopped by there almost every day while I was visiting Rome.

Up to this point (5 days in Rome... with gelato at least 1-2 times a day). This was the BEST pistachio gelato that we had! Their other flavours were also excellent, but that one stood out the most! If you added some salt and made it more crunchy you would be eating real pistachios. It was so good that we... More

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 a long walk but it is... 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.

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.
