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.

Excellent ice cream served creatively

The flavors are sooo unique and delicious. And the way that they are served is great. The line at the small location closest to the square is long, but it moves quickly. They have a good system worked out. However, just a few minutes down that street on the left is a larger location with the same... read more

Fantastic ice cream. So many different flavours that change daily. Service was quick and staff friendly. We went 3 times during our visit and the queue was reasonable each time. Would definitely go back for these ice creams!!

When searching out sites in Budapest in travel guides I saw numerous references to this place. I have a soft spot for Gelato and wanted to check it out during our stay. Made the trek there today and it was so worth it!! The place had a line up of about 20 people that never quit growing the whole time... More

A must with children, however prepare for a little bit of waiting while they prepare your ice cream. Interesting flavors as well. There are 2 shops on the same street check if the other is less crowded.

This was the perfect treat to deal with the Budapest heat! The presentation was impeccable! I will certainly be coming back again! I chose the Medium 3 flavour Gelato with Raspberry, Mango-Coconut and Pistachio. The Raspberry is very fruity and rich and refreshing. The Mango-Coconut was a little disappointing as I didn't taste much coconut. The pistachio was the best... More

We love ice cream on holiday and this place did not let us down! Presented in such a different and pretty way and the ice cream itself was delicious, particularly strawberry and elderflower and the dark chocolate. There were so many wonderful sounding flavours that it was difficult to choose! Would definitely return to Gelarto Rosa if we go back... More

Holy dang, this place is amazing. Sceptical at first as Hungary isn't really known for its gelato. But the queue was out the door the three times we passed, 4th time we joined. And boy was it a good decision. Queues don't lie, the gelato is amazing! The wait isn't long as they have quite an efficient way of serving.... More

As a self-confessed ice cream enthusiast, I was intrigued by the long lines this place was gathering at 11:30 at night. We joined the queue and were not disappointed! The best ice cream and gelato I have ever tasted, with quite reasonable prices!

Went for the look of it but the taste was even better. Ice cream put into rose shape? A way to attrack tourists but this one has the taste too. I tried salty caramel, lavender milk choc and hazelnut. All were very tasty. Highlt recommend!

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
