The best gelatto in town

All the flavours are amazing, the ice cream has the perfect consistency and texture. Be prepared to queue though, there's always a line until they close the doors (bonus: they don't close early)

This place definetely has the best ice cream. Especially the John Lemon and Mai Prima (weekly new ice cream creation) keep me coming back for more!

I didn't expect to find good ice cream in Utrecht, but it does exists! Forget the bad to disgusting ice creams on the Oudegracht and go to Roberto gelato, if you want a real one. The hazelnut and pistachio are especially good. The rest is fine, and prices are reasonable.

a bit of a walk away from the town center, Roberto's offers some of the best ice-cream we've ever had. The flavors and the textures are superb, the service is friendly and background music was a swooning Italian male singers...

The ice-cream is great, the service is fast, there is a lovely park to sit during nice weather... But that's not all. A must try is the "mai prima" special flavor, changed every week or so, with an innovative flavor combination!

I was staying in student accommodation in Alexandre Numenkade and Roberto's was only a block or two away on our way to the University on Drift. We went in every night determined to try as many of the delicious flavours of ice-cream as we could. I got up to 14 but repeated several. I think our group favourite was the... More

I am a lucky Italian who had the possibility to travel in many different countries.. In Italy it's easy to find a good ice cream, but when we cross the border the research for a good gelato can be endless. Well, after years I can truly tell you the ice cream of Roberto is the best I have ever had!!... More

Roberto and Il mulino are the best in Utrecht. I think the size of the balls are too small in comparison to other places specially in Italy they are more generous.

Roberto is one of the best gelato makers in Utrecht. His passion for his work is something you can taste. He has the regular flavours, but he loves to experiment. Even if you are diabetic...or esspecially if you are diabetic...this is teh place to come. He has extensive set of flavours of sugarless icecream. The great mango sorbet sugarfree is... More

The flavours of sorbet and gelati are excellent. I keep going back as they always have so many great flavours to choose from. But they always serve such small scoops do its feels a bit cheated so we get 3 scoops which isn't expensive and makes it more fun.
