Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.

Came here with friends the other weekend and as a group of 4 had 2 of the 6 scoop ice creams in champagne type flute glasses. The presentation of the dish was amazing so colourful with fresh fruit and wafers added to the ice cream. We sat out in the table area in the sun and chilled eating the most... More

The shape-rose of the ice cream is a great idea! The flavours were tasteful! If ypu are chocolate lovers don't forget to order the happy end (nutella inside the cone) to make it even better :) Enjoy!!! Also very good price;)

A nice looking ice cream. Tasted exactly like three other ice creams I had here in Budapest. Nothing less, nothing more... well, okay - it had a shape of a rose. So that was kind of exiting and totally fun - for about ten seconds (maybe fifteen, I didn't count).

Dear Jacob, we are very sorry for you. If you are still in Budapest i would invite you to a conversation about ice-cream and show you how we make our ice-cream. I am 100% sure i could convince you. Beleive me it is a very good staff, probably you were not in the mood. Regards Niki And the Gelarto team More

This is just outside the Basilica. We were having lunch and noticed people walking by with ice cream and taking pictures of it. We couldn't see the ice cream up close and wondered why anyone would take a picture of an ice cream cone. When we were done with lunch we walked by and saw the beautiful flowers they make... More

I didn't mind waiting in a queue for 20 minutes for this at all, very reasonable price for what you get. Ice cream shaped into roses, looked so nice I almost didn't want to eat it!! You paid first the gave a token to the girls who were making the ice creams and then you told them what flavours you... More

We had their gelato on ice cream day, and yes there was a massive queue outside the shop. The ice creams are obviously visually very appealing due to the flowery look, but behind all that, actually taste amazing. Every bit worth the wait.

We visited with friends during our trip in Budapest. It is centrally located at a square, the queue was huge so be prepared to wait 10 mins to be served, but the wait worth it! We ordered 2 large bowls of 6 scoops of ice cream which came nicely decorated with fruit. Some flavors have a nice twist such as... More
