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.

Delicious gelato, and a few other good finds, too

We tried most of the gelato places Desanzano had to offer and this was by far the best one. Not only does theirs taste the nicest, but the menu is always changing so you never get bored with it. It's also really good value - 2 Euros for a standard size cup (they go up to about 50 Euros if... read more

As good as any I tasted in Italy, creamy, full of flavour and seriously good quality and value. I had melon and peach but I'll be back to try the panna cotta with caramel!

This is the same company as the gelati restaurant near Rome termini. The gelati is of similar quality, just much smaller. Worth a visit.

Simply amazing :) don't visit Densezano without stopping here....tucked away behind the church in the centre of the town it is beautifully understated but the ice cream speaks for itself

The ice cream here is very good,although it would help if there was a translation of the various flavours. I had the peach which was very nice and my wife and daughter enjoyed the chocolate.the shop is neat and tidy and the prices are very reasonable

Gelateria La Romana takes Italian ice cream to a new level! Fresh, produced on-site and wonderful tastes. We quickly made it to a routine to drop by here every day and tried so many different tastes as possible, just to find that they all were perfect. The staff was wonderful and helped by explaning what the different tastes were made... More

If you manage to go to one of the cities where there is La Romana, be sure to try them! Really excellent ice cream, on par with the best in Italy, and with that, in the world :-) Prices are great also... 3€ for the large cup with 4 tastes.

One of the best gelaterie I have ever been to. Couldn't get enough of it :) tucked away behind the duomo la romana is worth a quick detour. Ice cream flavors change day and consistency is silky smooth.

We have eaten ice cream at The Romana many times and has always been excellent. Very genuine ingredients and very balanced flavours, never too sweet or too rich. Recommend the "ricotta e fichi" . We have taken many friends and family members to eat Ice cream at "The romana" and never got disappointed. Reachable by foot in the heart of... More
