The ice cream is gluten free and tastes so fresh! We tried the Nutella, chocolate and yogurt flavours. It's a must try on the way walking to the colliseum.

We stumbled across this gelateria on our way to the Colosseum. The entrance was inviting, and the ice cream even more so! We had a variety of flavours, including limone sorrento and chocolate cookie - all were incredible! Would definitely go back again.. and again!

We wandered down Via Cavour and stumbled upon this gelateria. We were so glad we did! I had the vanilla with nutella and it was fantastic. Big, thick swirls of frozen, creamy nutella in a creamy vanilla base... pure heaven!

We returned to La Dolce,because when you find a great restaurant with great service with great food...just like my mumma cooks you know its the right thing to do. We enjoyed everything we ate and Alice is the most gracious and hospitable of hosts. Freshness' guaranteed.We enjoyed our meal inside to avoid the street sellers . The desserts are delicious...

We stopped at this gelateria while in Rome because my wife remembered seeing it on Tripadvisor. Since it had some good reviews our expectations were high.

Why a Spaniard writes a review in English ...? Well, but you should know that we do the new ice cream every day, and our staff is well known for his kindness and attention to customers ... Or maybe you know this already .. More

Had gelato in Venice, then Florence, then Siena and now Rome. La Dolce Vita was the best of the best! Knowledgeable owner described not only the taste of each gelato, but also the region where the ingredients originated. Magnifico!
