After dinner we decided to enjoy dessert at Dolce Roma. There was quite a variety of flavors to choose from. We tried a scoop of chocolate and a scoop of turtle ice cream. The chocolate was flavorful and the turtle was good. I feel the nuts in the turtle ice cream had an old taste to them. The portions are... More

All the flavors we tasted and ordered were outstanding, especially the dulce de leche and the lemon. We had dinner at Gabriella's next door, wonderful Italian food! There is a surf/souvenir store adjoining this gelato shop, and we walked through it and did a little shopping too, enjoyed walking off our dinner and dessert as a family. Great place!

The lemon ice is so refreshing! There are many other varieties that are also tasty. The small is more than big enough- we rarely finish the mediums when our eyes are bigger than our stomachs! The facilities are clean and the staff is friendly. This is our favorite spot for a sweet treat when on the island! Plus, there is... More

We stopped for gelato on a Sunday evening and we both enjoyed it. My wife had vanilla and pistachio and I had pistachio and tiramisu. It was about as good as other gelato I've had in Fort Worth and in Vegas.

First Gelato experience, not impressed. They did have a lot of flavors, very hard to choose. I still prefer The Marble Slab or Basking Robbins.

Delish! Wide variety of flavors with a limit of 2 tastings per customer. I chose Rocky Road, kids chose chocolate, birthday cake & cookies & cream & my husband chose horchata. Rocky Road & horchata are my personal favs! We purchased mediums for everyone & it was about $22 for 5 mediums. Definitely the best Italian icecream we've ever had!

The chocolate dipped waffle cone with peanuts was excellent. However, the ice cream tasted freezer burned and less than flavorful. We went to the grocery store afterwards and bought Blue Bunny ice cream to eat on our vacation because we wouldn't waste the money going back.

I was surprised at the lack of ice cream places on SPI but Dolce Roma has a delicious variety of Gelato, which makes up for the short supply.

We were not sure about the quality of the place after reading some reviews. The ice cream we had was good. It was difficult to decide about the flavor to have. They have a big variety of ice cream in the counter/refrigerator. In addition they have other flavors on the back. I asked for coconut, it was good. I also... More

We all tried a different flavor and none of us were disappointed. There were over 40 varieties so hard to pick one.
