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 after the baths! Gelato is very high quality and they have some interesting flavors. I have vanilla, chocolate and coffee which were all amazing. Rose design is beautiful and interesting. There was a line when we arrived but it moved quickly. Staff was friendly and everyone spoke English.

So glad our tourist showed us this ice cream place. It's amazing! The lines can get long but they go fast. You definitely want to have this ice cream. It's delicious and just fun how they make the flower out of ice cream. We went twice with the last day even being cold but still couldn't pass it up!

If you are in Budapest you should definitely try their ice -cream. It is no worse than the ice cream in Italy. They have a huge variety of flavors including some interesting ones like ginger, olive and basil. The presentation is amazing. It looks like a piece of art

Didn't even know about this place until I took my daughter to the playground in front of our hotel, and saw some children eating flower looking ice cream cones. I don't usually like ice cream but this one is not overly sweet and doesn't make me thirsty. I eat with my eyes so the pretty appearance certainly a big plus... More

the roseshaped gelato reminds me of Amorino, and the flavours are equally varied and interesting. I really liked the lavendar with white chocolate, it's very refreshing. the queue can get pretty long but the service is always fast.

The presentation in itself is a wonderful sight. A cone with a beautiful flower on the top. This flower happens to be made of the most wonderful ice cream in Europe and the world. Do try the chocolate (just chocolate one) and if you're in luck, do not miss the olive oil one (yes, I had my doubts but that's... More

Gelarto Rosa is located in front of St Stephen Basilica. I would recommend this place for their unique rose-shaped icecream which is so delicately crafted by the friendly staff. There's a wide range of flavours to choose from, with a minimum order of 2 scoops. Definitely worth a visit while you're in Budapest!
