La Romana gelato parlour was born in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini in 1947, receiving the name of the founder's daughter. A few years later Vito Zucchi, progenitor of the family, took over the enterprise. Thanks to his fervent creativity and the use of a few ingredients then available, he created a wide range of high-quality flavours which are still made in our stores today. For this reason, we offer traditional flavours made exclusively with selected products, following old recipes of the past.

Wow , you should see the queue on a sunday.

We had had lunch , then got the crazy idea to have a gelato , so off we went to La Romana . I thought they must have been giving away free ice-cream when we arrived because the queue was about 40 people long . AND its winter time . We wandered off for a bit and then came back... read more

We went here twice, since it was just around the corner of our apartment. And we loved it! The flavors are great. If you don't know which flavor you've to choose they'll help you with some tasting. Around 17-18.00 the place gets crowded with Italians for a pre dinner start with ice cream.

From all the gelaterías in Italy, this one is the best for me. Ice cream is simply delicious! I also like that there's a plenty of space inside, and you can sit at the table while eating the ice cream.

I'm from four years in Padua and I try almost all ice cream shops. At La Romana was the best ice cream that I eat it. Have also a good price. You really have to try it.

A different kind of ice cream, wide selection, good service and friendly staff. Ice Cream was very good but tends to melt easily.

lately known as one of the best ice-cream in Padua.. i've tried it a couple of times, and I must say it's nothing special. Flavors are too sweet, and it is not homemade at all. there are many better

a little on the fatty side, but outrageous flavors (ricotta ice cream with caramelized figs). got to be one of the best, if not the best in town.

My Darling loves his gelato . The gelato here is seriously delicious. The chocolate deep and rich ...the pistachio light and genuinely flavoured. The yoghurt unctuous and divine. what more is there to say.
