Ranked #5 of 1,660 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.

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

We should not compare its gelato with it of Italy because we were in Budapest. At least, it's a safe and nice choice if you want to have a lovely Gelato in Budapest. We order 3 scoops of the flavours which were coconut, mango and strawberry yogurt. They were all rich and tasty. I didn't feel any additional artificial chemicals.... More

Just wow-had this recommended as a must visit, and it was completely spot on. Watching them form the ice cream into roses was only topped by the flavours-I can definitely recommend the salted caramel!!!

A very popular ice cream shop just outside the Basilica. It's main draw is the beautiful rose presentation of the ice cream - and delicious flavours, some of which are a bit different (plum, white chocolate & lavender). The ice cream is very tasty, better than the generic ice cream places, but not quite the best in Budapest. Everyone would... More

Love what they do with the ice cream here - it's beautiful and they have a lot of unique flavours you wouldn't find elsewhere. The staff were lovely too!

It is worth noting that it would probably be difficult for most reviewers to rate this poorly (after all, it's just an ice cream?), so its ranking as one of the best in Budapest is perhaps disproportionately affected by this. (It's obviously not really a restaurant; I would call it more of an attraction...) I would recommend visiting, however. The... More

This is was my fourth visit to Budapest, and this time I took a private guided tour for two. Our guide took us to Rosa and said it was by all means the best gelateria in town-he was absolutely right. Despite the location at a side street by the Szentistvan cathedral and its adjoining busy pedestrian zone, they serve delicious... More
