Good Gelato

We popped in here while we were at the Piazza Navona, it was a tiny shop and a really hot day. People were sitting in the shade outside the doors, there were some nice flavors available and even if you cant work out what the flavor was they had put things on the top so that even tourists could... read more

The 1st time ever that I have thrown away an ice cream - plastic taste, the cone seemed cheap quality. I cannot imagine Italians put up with ice cream of such poor quality - or is it aimed at tourists only.

The ice creams don't have any taste... I've eaten 2 spoons and throw it in the garbage... Lots of choices and i don't think that this is the best way to maintain the quality

I loved their vegan chocolate and coconut gelato. It was so full of flavour and refreshing! My partner got the mango gelato and wasn't impressed, so a matter of what you select I guess. I definitely recommend the vegan options even if you're not vegan!

Just popped into this ice cream shop the other day and I have to say, as far as a chain of gelateries go, these have been some of the best we've tried. This shop in particular was the best one we came across in a good location. Really nice selection of flavours with varying cone sizes depending upon how hungry... More

I've stopped at a few of these throughout the city of Rome. Their gelato is icy and not real. Try and find a places where the gelato is kept in silver buckets and the colors of the gelato aren't super bright. Blue ice is the McDonalds of gelato.

A really good gelato, full with stores all over Roma. You have got to try gelato, when in Rome. Recommended.

One of the best places to get ice cream/gelato in Rome! Kinder/Hazelnut/Snickers! All very hard to beat. We went here a few times as it was better than others we tried. Thanks Blue Ice!

Seems like there are many blue ice locations, and the gelato seems to vary . . . we stopped at two locations between Piazza Navona and Campo di Fiori. The first location (furthest from Campo di Fiori did NOT look attractive . . the gelato looked "tired." The newer (apparently) location closer to Campo di fiori had VERY attractive displays... More
