Sorry to say but we tased 6 flavours and most of them were very artificial, not like real fruit at all. You can avoid it.

You are an expert reviewer? Well, you should know that we are a certified ice-cream that uses only fresh fruit in season. You've got the wrong room, or you wrote a big lie. More

Good option if you are close. Maybe I was spoiled by teatro and della parma, but the pistaccio, hazelnut and biscotti were not very strong in flavor. There is stuff way better if you are willing to walk or metro.

Next to the Vespa museum and shop, the gelato here is fantastic and there's complimentary wifi, one of the best gelatos I've had in Italy!

There is a major difference between gelato and ice cream. If you go into this establishment looking for traditional Americanized ice cream, you may find yourself disappointed. However, if you go into this establishment looking for the best and most refreshing gelato in Rome, you will find precisely what you are looking for. The gentleman that owns and runs this... More

Tasty but not the best one... I liked what we took but I thing that the ice cream could be even better. The greatest flavours were Melon and Red Fruits.
