We had a really goid time here. The waitress let us taste any kind of ice cream we wanted before we chose and explained the tatses. She spoke pretty good English and was really friendly, helpful and smiled a lot. Almond, mimose and rose are delicious. Really worth to try. :)

This place was fantastic! We were taken here at the end of a tasting tour of the city, and it was certainly a highlight. The owner spoke perfect English, was incredibly friendly and clearly had a passion for gelatos. Delicious!

Cannot recommend highly enough. Delicious, tons of flavors from organic fruit to the owner's own unique recipes. And the owner herself is so friendly and welcoming, you will love meeting her and she will tell you (in perfect English) anything you want to know about gelato.

The best gelato so far in a two week trip with daily (often twice daily) gelato breaks. Fantastic flavors in the historic center near the red and white palazzi. Also reasonably priced for top quality gelato in a great location.

After a long day of wondering in the city, we stepped in to this cute gelateria, to receive a welcoming personal attention from the owner - a sweet, well spoken, smiley and with genuine care for customer satisfaction. We received explanations about each "interesting" flavor and we tasted as much as we wanted. very lovely - if you are in... More

This Gelateria is one of the best one I know. First, don't expect a large choice of flavours since the owner has chosen to provide only 8 different ones (it kind of upset me when you can find 40 different but standard flavours in some very good gelateria) but they are really worth trying. I strongly suggest asking the young... More

I am here on a short break to study Italian, and someone at my school recommended Rosa's place. Her gelato is fabulous, and she crafts each one carefully. The other day she made mora, aka blackberry, with berries from Trentino which is famous for its berries. I also tried fior di latte, which is sort of like a super creamy... More

I used to come here ALL THE TIME on my year studying abroad, genuinely the loveliest owner and amazing ice-cream. She speaks perfect english and will even explain what goes into each flavour (and lets you taste as many as you want).
