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.

This place was extremely friendly and helpful even given the staff’s continuous inundation with people. They have outdoor table are absolutely the best place to go in his area for good Gelato. (The other place on the square we tried: they were rude and the gelato was not very good (very watery)).

Not only is specific in a look, but is also a wonderful taste. Very kind girls working. Quick service despite the people waiting for ice cream.

I went twice during my 4 days visit. The first time I made a 20 minutes line. I loved it so much that I returned. No line the second time. Really good flavors and awesome service.

After reading reviews on tripadvisor, I decided to drag the boyfriend half way round the city to come here, and I'm so happy we did! The gelato was absolutely amazing!! It wasn't very busy when we arrived, but can imagine it would get especially during the summer periods. I love how they design the ice cream into a rose on... More

This fantastic little gelato shop is about a 3 minute walk from the metro and just around the corner from the basilica. We arrived just before they opened but the staff graciously let us in and served us happily. They were very helpful and provided us with all the details of the ingredients. We even sampled a few before deciding... More

We were looking for a restaurant and saw a line stretching out of this place, so we decided to do dessert first this evening rather than let the opportunity pass. Good thing - it was delicious! The flavors are magnificent and the texture is perfectly creamy. We've been back each day since. If you like gelato, this is a must.

I read about this place on a food blogger's website. When walking around the cathedral area, I remembered reading that this shop was near the church. I veered right and there it was, with a line out the door. We came here twice on our brief visit to Budapest because it really is just that good. The flavors are incredibly... More

Right outside St Stephens, it's a very small ice cream shop which can get extremely busy whereby it's queueing out the door. Although, was worth the wait and tasty ice cream in the shape of a rose... Obviously. There is about 4/5 girls working doing different people ice creams to keep up with demand. But, id recommend going for the... More
