Gelato!

The best gelato in Rome. I had the fior di latte and it was so delicious! The staff were laughing at me for being so noisy about my love of their ice cream - LOL!

The ice cream was OK but the service was terrible. The girl was very rude, it was not a good visit and I wouldn't come back.

A great little gelato shop that we found as we were wandering the streets near the Colosseum. A wide range of flavours and a very helpful gentleman behind the counter. A perfect treat on a warm day.

We stumbled upon this place between the Colloseum and the Basilica St John and it was a welcome oasis of good quality gelato. The lady serving in the shop was also nice and helpful.

By far, this ties with one of the best gelato in Italy... excellent! The coconut was my favorite. There isn't much seating, maybe 2-3 chairs out on the sidewalk + free wifi

We were near the Roman Forum and really fancied some ice cream because it was a lovely sunny day so had a look on Tripadvisor and this place.

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.
