Decent chain of gelateries

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... read more

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!

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

My husband and I stopped for gelato here more times than I'd like to admit...but there were so many delicious flavors to try, and every flavor we tried was awesome!

You should try the passionfruit icecream. Just delicious. They have a side selection and the prices are reasonable. We went to the shop on Trastevere, and after getting the Icecream we sat outside Santa Maria Church. Beautiful!

There you can get the largest portion of ice cream ever (and i’m talking about the small one). There is enormous selection of flavours (it's really hard to decide) and they are really delicious.
