Of the numerous Gelaterias I tried in Italy (Rome, Florence, Vencie, Genoa).. Profumo di Rosa was absolutely the best. Every single flavor is amazing! This place is a MUST visit.

Profumo di Rosa is my favourite gelateria in the world!!! Not only is the gelato incredibile and I find myself visiting Rosa a few times a week, the service is amazing. Love seeing her new creations from week to week! Try her secret recipe 'Mimosa' flavour.

The lady serving was very friendly and humorous. She recommended a few of the special flavours. Loved the special I ate that day, think it's called mimosa! But it's a combination of several flavours. They have rose flavour too! A must try in Genoa.

This was our favorite gelato we had during our trip -- absolutely delicious. While every flavor my wife and I tried was excellent, I would recommend getting the lemon meringue if they have it -- superb!

We ate ice creams on various cities in Italy before. We think that there are lots of ice cream shops much better than here.

Enjoyable Gelato in this place which is well reviewed. Owner knowledgable and personable. Had the cherry Amarena and Pistaschio. Very nice and pretty cheap.

Tucked into a cobblestone street in Genoa was this Gelato haven. There was a large range of classic and creative flavors, that apparently change all the time. The shopkeeper was fluent in many languages and was so friendly! It was also relatively cheap.
