The owner was welcoming, talkative and friendly, all while crushing fruit in a bowl for another batch of gelato. She encouraged us to try different flavors before we decided which kinds to buy. She asked us about our travels and told us about places she had visited and would like to visit. She even told us about her process of... More

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.

I m from Genova and I confirm that this is the best ice cream that you can found in my city. Flavors of first quality, extremely well done, and the prince is the lower ever seen, especially in the center city. And then the owner, Rosa, is able to make you feel the real italian welcome. She is also a... More

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.
