Today we have been quite disappointed after seeing that it was closed or renovation. Be sure that it is open before you go there.

One of the best gelatos of my life. When in Rome you have to try this Gelato. We just couldn't get enough of it.

Have read so many great reviews, we went to try II Gelato too. I didn't test any flavors which might be a mistake, and being conservative, I chose extra dark chocolate and ricotta & blueberry. They were great, but didn't 'wow' me... Next time, I would be more bold to try some innovative flavors!!!

Not far away from the crowdy streets of centro storico, a quiet heaven for ice cream lovers. Lots of different tastes (I counted 12 different chocolates) with some risky ones (try brie, grana or gorgonzola just once in your life). And half the price of touristy places (2 for 2 euros, 3 for 3 euros...), so it is always nice... More

I love ice cream, so during my two weeks in Italy I had a LOT of gelato. This is by far the best. The selection is huge and the quality is excellent. We happily just stumbled on the place, but it is definitely worth map questing.

Why, oh why did we wait until the last day of our trip to come here? We were like Italians in a gelato shop. The variety of flavors to choose from was incredible. From basic favorites to new flavor combinations that we would have never thought of, there is something here for everyone! That includes people with a gluten allergy,... More

We've had the incredible fortune to be inRome twice in the past year and have visited Il Gelato Centro Storico almost daily both trips. Incredible seasonal flavors, granitas in the Summer, and practically an entire ROOM dedicated to numerous different chocolate gelatos. Bonus is the sweet and friendly guy who scoops while wearing the MOST adorable red elf cap -... More
