Ranked #3 of 1,610 restaurants in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Ice Cream
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Late Night
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.

Home made ice cream served like a flower, the taste is amazing. I had lavender, lemon basil, and ginger ice. Not some normal ice cream taste, but it was perfect. Just try it during your stay!

The best ice cream place in Budapest, in our opinion! Prices were reasonable (for four scoops, I think it was 800 HUF). The presentation was amazing - they make your ice cream in the shape of a flower! We were overwhelmed by the choice of flavours. We wanted to try them all! The sorbets were incredible.

We became totally addicted to this place! The gelato was perfect for our hot summer weekend and the presentation made it even better. There might be a line but it is totally worth it! Get 3 flavors : )

If you want delicious gelato that is scooped out like a flower - this is your place. The ice cream is superb. While you may want to admire the petals of gelato, better eat it before it starts melting all over your fingers. They offer hot fudge in the bottom of the cone for a little more money. Some happy...

Heaven is for real when you try this amazing 'home-made' gelato...oh and the shape is funny too! Go with the lavenda flavour if you're into trying something new.

Unique and very enjoyable experience. Surprising tastes: basil with lime, chocolate with chili. Not so expensive.
