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.

I found this place on tripadvisor, and I can confirm what I read: this rose ice cream is super good!! The flavour is really sweet and creamy in the good way, there are no ice tracks in the ice cream but just a wonderful taste to enjoy slowly. Staff is really kind and welcoming.

The ice cream was shaped beautifully, and it enables you to have as many flavors as you like. I just wish I had visited in the summer to sample more flavors. I definitely enjoyed the berry sorbet, and although it sounds odd the white chocolate lavender was absolutely delectable! Centrally placed right by the Basillica

Nice, cozy little place with funny-looking ice-cream. Not the best ice-cream I've had in my life but it was OK and the original look made it better. Free wi-fi!

Had to go during our day trip to Budapest because I've never seen an ice cream joint top a major city's TA chart. Anyway, great service, yummy macaroons and tasty gelato, creatively shaped into roses. What's not to like?!? Go for the chili chocolate + pistachio! You can thank me later. ;-)

Very nice place to stop to have a ice cream, coffee or cake. In the middle of city centre. I highly recomend to try signature rose shape ice cream- pistachio was my favourite :-)

Visited with my girlfriend around 8.30PM on December 26th. The place was very beautiful, cozy, and is located very close to the St. Istvan church. The owner was very kind and invited us to try any flavour we wanted to. I have read some review before going there but the blooming rose-shaped Ice Cream still surprise me anyway. The Ice... More

Visited on the strength of the Tripadvisor reviews - and we certainly weren't disappointed. There was often a queue but worth the wait to try amazing flavours such as white chocolate and lavender, basil and lemon, plum and cinnamon, etc - all crafted into pretty roses. The ice-creams and sorbets are all really fresh-tasting and not sickly or overly sweet.... More

Went to Gelarto Rosa with my partner. I had dark chocolate cherry and coffee ice cream, a gingerbread macaron, and a rose caramel coffee. My partner had a coffee. The ice cream was excellent, very smooth and rich without being sickly sweet. The macaron had a really good flavour and was the right mix of crispy and chewy. The drinks... More
