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.

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!

The gelato and coffee were great. It became a ritual for me and the kids. They are open really early for those jet lagged mornings too.

I saw the crowd eating ice cream outside Caffè Roma when passing so I went in and had a look. The selection was big and interesting. I came back a few times during my days in Monopoli and I am sure I will come back.
