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.

We had read and seen pictures of the gelato roses and knew we wanted to try this place while visiting Budapest. While the presentation is unique and gorgeous, the creamy and flavorful gelato kept us coming back for more! Yum!

This ice cream is delicious! They have special seasonal flavors (my favorite so far is the pumpkin ice cream!), which all taste great (yes, they even make olive oil ice cream taste good!).

Ice cream were good, just that my expectations were a bit high due to so high rank on trip advisor. For sure worth trying because of the shape though!

With just few Euros you can get a great flavour trip. Choose from 2-4 flavours that are shaped like flower on top a cone. I had chilli chocklate with some plum and pear flavours. While eating you can sit around the square and admire St Stephens Cathedral.

I LOVE that each gelato is served in the shape of a rose... I chose my flavors to make my flower prettier! For those searching for this place, google maps will take you out of your way. Avoid that error. It is located in the main square where St. Stephan's Cathedral is located, directly across from Starbucks. The name signage... More

It's a really nice place to taste something special. Usual ice-creams are boring, but this one....definitely not ;) Not just because its shape but the taste as well. It's a bit expensive compared to other places but it's really worth the money, at least once in summer season. There are a lot of people all the time in front of... More

Absolutely beautiful, I didn't want to eat it! The girls making them were incredibly helpful with flavours (which were absolutely delicious) and we got so many comments on them when we left down the street. Would definitely return.

When I saw this little shop I had to go inside, because I was very impressed by the rose design. We tried chilli chocolate (my boyfriend favourite), pumpkin, salted caramel & panna cotta (I absolutely love it), plum with cinnamon, basil & lemon sorbet (very interesting), pear sorbet and mango. They have amazing & unique flavors, I would come back... More

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!
