Great icecream, great croissant

Cafe Roma is the best place for ice cream in the middle of central Monopoli. Super nutella is a must to try, other flavours are fantastic as well. You won't be disappointed! For breakfast try the nutella filled croissant! Staff is friendly, prices are reasonable, always full with locals.

It's a shame that such a great product (the gelato) is ruined by the stampede that is the paying and serving process. It's funny that one's view of Italians is a civilised, ordered people. No way. I have seen better behaved and ordered packs of dogs. The process of getting what you paid for is the problem. Forget it if... More

We went here twice, as we had to visit it again. Some flavors are better than others, but the ones who were good were really out standing. Pistachio and the melon flavor was definitely among the best ones.

I visited cafe Roma in June with my family. We all took different ice cream flavors and we were all happy with them. The ice cream was really, really good. We took our cones and went to a piazza nearby to sit on a bench in the shadow and enjoy life.

You can go far wrong if you are at a spot frequented by the locals. Such is the case with Cafe Roma. Wondeful gelato, and pastries to die for right on the edge of the old town. Prices are very reasonable, and the staff are really helpful.

Very good gelato, pastries, coffee etc. The café always seems to be bustling with people and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is an old world feel about the place with a high bar serving counter and well presented staff. The position near the main church and the market square make it ideal for visits throughout the day.

Always a nice spot to drop into for a morning coffee, pastry or ice cream. Very nice friendly staff and a good vibe. All at very reasonable prices too.

Bold statement but our daughter has been on a quest to find the best gelato in Italy during our visits over the past 2 years. The caffe is great. So many choices. The Cioccolatto and Limone at Caffe Roma rated highest, with their Fragola and Coffee close behind. Actually none of the flavours extsnsively sampled rated poorly. The pastry items... More

Best Ice cream in the town, big choice of flavours and cheap. we have tried other places but we liked this place the most. Dislike: one day per week this place is close :))) and we missed our ice cream a lot!
