Description: 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.

The ice cream is so pretty that you don't want to eat it. Then when you taste it you don't even feel bad for ruining such a beautiful rose. Variety of flavors. Exquisite!

We stopped here on our way home yesterday, the ice cream isn't the best I've ever had but it's still really good, the way they serve it makes it worth it. Don't get me wrong it's good ice cream!

This place is amazing! I read about it here on Tripadvisor before going to Budapest and put it on my "to visit" list. Its right opposite the Basilica. My husband and I were so impressed with the rose ice creams and how beautiful they looked, we felt bad to eat them! But it tastes just as good as they look.... More

The gelati is as delicious as it looks. There's a reason why there's a big queue here - the gelati is delicious and is very pretty. We went twice as it was so good. I tried the corn flavour - delicious!

Worth it for the novelty but the flovour is also great, I loved the cherry. Good value especially on the large size but it will take a while to walk off the calories! Location is incorrect on TA app, it is next to the basilica and does not have the name obvious on the sign so look for the petals... More
