Best Gelato in Rome

Surprisingly, of all the little Gelato shops in Rome, and there are literally hundreds, this one is the best. You can definitely tell the difference. Try the others then try this one.

Nice place for an early evening ice cream. Not far from colosseum. Good range of flavours - just 2 euros for small tub of two flavours. Enjoyed biscotti and crema. Eat outside on bench and enjoy this neighbourhood.

I've been trying various pistachio gelatos in rome, and this one was the most disappointing! It tasted quite fake, and even the colour did not look natural! Would not come back here despite the low prices.

All right. Another fake review ... Our pistachio is among the best in Rome .. She does not like? It's something a little strange ... More

We discovered this place while roaming around trying to find our way around in the area. On seeing the length of the line waiting we had to try it...must say I can still think of it ...was one of the best ones I have had!

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

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.
