After being in rome for 6 days and trying over 20 galeto places, I must say this is by far the best, scoring full marks in all elements: customer service, quality and value for money. At Romana, there is over a dozen flavours to choose from which are all nice, whichever you choose, my favourite I would recommend is pistachio... More

Friends love this place mainly I think because it is open late,it surely can't before the ice cream. Ok so there area great range of favours, but none which standout. I did not finish mice cream, this is unheard of before, I also tried those of my friends (between us we had about 12 flavours). This is not somewhere is... More

A very good start before shopping in Padua. The cookies and chocolat, and vanilla with nuts where the best i ever tasted. The dark chocolat is not my favorit but that may be personal. A good explanation of the different flavors was a plus and of you have a dought they let you taste

We were slightly put off by not seeing great mounds of ice cream, as is typical in Italy. The ice cream in this gelateria is kept covered. My husband had two scoops as "antipasti" before we went for lunch (a restaurant recommended by the adorable server at the gelateria) and then we returned for another scoop for dessert. It's just...

This was amazing; we were staying at the Plaza Hotel opposite and therefore found it almost by chance. We both love ice cream and rated this the best we had every tasted. We tried almost everything in the three days were in Padua - crepes to die for with fruit and ice cream - ice cream deserts that were works... More

The ice cream sold here is beyond belief it's simply fabulous! It doesn't matter what time you visit it's always busy and the flavours, well you would have to go and see for yourself! There are a lot of Italians that buy ice creams here and family's out for a stroll. the staff are very friendly and offer 'tasters' if... More

Since its opening, I am pretty sure that I've tried all the flavours available! In my opinion "Biscotto della Nonna" and "Croccantino all'amarena" are definitely the best, but I also like Dark Chocolate and Mint. All flavours are soooo creamy and tasty...slurp! The atmosphere is nice, there are about 20 seats inside and the staff is welcoming and offers you... More

I went to the store in Rome during my week stay as it was nearby my hotel. The store was full of customers every night and the clientel was mainly Italians with the occational tourist popping in once in a while during the evening. The first time my travel companion and I went in, we ordered 2 scoops each and... More

A local recommended this gelateria to us. My partner, a former gelateria owner was skeptical of the rave review but agreed to give it a try. He walked out smiling. The price is a bit higher than one would pay at any of the more ordinary spots but not over the top and worth it. All of the gelato is... More
