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).

Such a lovely selection of flavored- the rose was so different, good, but I prefer the standards. Great quality and prices are fair.

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

There are not a lot of flavor to choose. And the rose flavor which seems like their significant one tastes disgusting for me

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.
