I loved these ice-cream. My friend loved it too. A banana so faithfull to the flavor that I thought I was eating a really good banana... The chocolate was awesome. I wished there were more flavors, but that's the proof they use only fresh and saisonal products. Go, go, go now !

We tried gelato at several other places during our 2 week trip to Rome. This was hands down the very best! The pistachio was perfect as was the chocolate! Not far from Colosseo or Cavour subway stops. Go past all the pushy sales guys at the beginning of the street and choose the best!

We had to visit this gelateria more than once! Wonder why? Just some of the best gelato ever! There is gelato everywhere but it is not all created equal. But now I understand why Romans love their gelato.

We ate a lot of ice cream in Rome but this place beat the lot hands down. We actually fouind the place by total accident on our way back from the Colosseum and just could not manage to walk past; everything looked so delicious! We received a very warm welcome from the proprietor and our complete lack of italian skills... More

We stayed in an apartment upstairs and promised the kids gelato as a treat on our first day in Rome. We went back there every day we were in Rome!!!! When I suggested we try one closer to the Vatican I was flatly told no by my daughters, that we had to wait until we got back home to La... More

We came across this little store by chance after a long day of touring.. They sold fabulous gelato and the lady who served us was delightful . Our lack of Italian was no problem and she took our orders well .

Wonderful gelato, the best we had in Rome (and we ate it once or twice a day!) The shop was run by one woman, who was friendly and welcoming. The gelato tasted amazing, and you could see the kitchen through the back. The shop had a lot of different flavours that we didn't see in other shops, such as coconut... More
