We found this 'gelateria' walking to the piazza venecia and lived up to all the recognitions that can be seen inside. The ice creams were cheap considering the zone and the quality was excellent. I recommend very much the biscuit flavour. Easily one of the best gelaterias i've ever been to.

Italy is known for its amazing ice-creams, and this place is one of the reasons that gives Italy such a fame. The homemade, tasty ice-creams that you can try in this "Gelataria" are amazing, It is like eating fresh fruit! Another thing that is really good is the quality/price relation which is one of the best for this area of... More

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!
