I finally went here on my last day in Genova, the first time I tryed to go they were closed. Fyi they close at 7:30. I have tried lots of gelato in Florence, Milan, and Venice. This was by far the best I have had! It is soo creamy and not overly sweet like at some places. Go here!

But that tasted for more!!! Nocciola, pistacchio, mango... Creamy ice cream, really tasty, really smooth on a crispy wafer cone (ice cream sold... More

I am a huge fan of ice-cream; I eat it even when there's snow outside..! and This ice-cream is really the best I have ever tried - and I can say I've tried many -. Profumo set my standards so high that I have now problems to eat any other ice-creams!! The place to go.

This is real italian icecream, my favourite must be pistachio, the strawbery one had pieces of fruit in it, it was really really tasty. As the gelateria doesn't sell coffee, we got coffee from next door cafe and sat at the table outside gelateria having coffee and icecream, it was delicious. Definitely the best icecream in Genoa

Having read the reviews, i was expecting much more! Average. Nothing special. Genoa offers tastier, and certainly friendlier, elsewhere.

I can only say that I have a great deal of respect for someone who is so dedicated to such high quality . As you enter in this small boutique you can feel the passion that the owner puts in her work, she shares with you all the little details that creates this amazing ice cream. A must when you... More

If you are visiting Genova a trip to Gelateria Profuma di Rosa is a must. The ice cream is fantastic - the best in Genova. Lovely fresh and unusual flavours - try it, you won't be disappointed!
