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.

Wanted to try this place as seen some reviews. Went There and it's a little place with only about six choice of ice cream Flavours. The only good thing I would say is that they create the ice cream in a rose style and pretty tasty. When asking if you choose in a cup they will not make it into... More

Hello, we are sorry about the choice, but i must correct you we have every day minimum 10 flavors at winter time, and about 25 at summer. We believe that it is better to have smaller choice but freshly made ice-cream. Unfortunately we can only form roses on the cone, it is the foundation of the form. We hope to... More

Back to Hungary we visited the highly recommended place Gelarto Rosa near Basilica. We were there in the winter season. They have ice cream but it was to bad to taste it. It is nothing special. You can find on every corner a "gelateria" like this in Italy, and also in Hungary, in the summer season. Yes you can try... More

Everything about this local favourite is fantastic! The gelato is scrumptious, the service is absolutely excellent, the making of your chosen gelato flavours into a rose is quick and entertaining, and the little venue is absolutely cute!! We had tea and gelato there, even though it was cold outside! This is place that you'll *always* want to come to when... More

Delicious and beautiful, what more could you want? Steps away from the incredible St. Stephen's Basilica, this place is friendly and serves amazing, artistic, and delicious gelato.

Wow, their Gelato is absolutely amazing! This is definitely the most visually stunning gelato I've ever eaten! Don't underestimate this little piece of art, not only does it pack a punch to the eye, but it delivers on flavours as well! I had Lemon & Basil, Pumpkin, and Strawberry & Elderflower, hands down, the most amazing gelato flavours I've ever... More
