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 walked for ages to find this place and it was more than worth it. Ice cream choice was great, really tasty and uniquely presented in a lovely rose shape. All for a great price too.

We had 6 flavours and enjoyed them all. My favourite was the peanut butter and panna cotta with salted caramel. We also had Pistachio, Raspberry, Kiwibanana & Strawberry. The fruit flavours were refreshing and matched well with the creamier flavours.

Something really unique. I've been in Budapest at the beginning of November and this gelato was a must. Really nice to see, but also tasty even for someone who's from Italy.

Love this place! The inside was decorated in a shabby chic french style with floral and rustic accents and a big chandelier. A few small table if you want to sit and eat. We each had a cone of gelato and they put it in the cone so that it looks like a flower. The gelato was great and they... More

Very clever what they do with the ice cream - very artistic, a great find. Lavender and White Chocolate didn't sound like a great combination, but it was delicious!

Our daughter is studying abroad in Budapest, and this was one of her favorite places that she wanted to share with us. I had a combination of cinnamon pear and White chocolate with lavender. The flavors were phenomenal and the presentation was gorgeous. It was fun watching the staff craft the gelato into roses. We can see why this is... More

In Budapest you can find some very delicious ice cream but not in this place. The taste was just fine but the shape was beautiful.

What a wonderful relieve to eat quality and on top of it all it is beautifully presented. In the summer you will surely find a huge cue before you get served but well worth the wait. The gelaterie is very nicelly decorated, shame you can't just hang out there due to the amount of ppl. You will not regret it!
