“Best gelato in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Frigidarium was the best gelato we found in Rome, and one of the better gelaterias in Italy. Centrally located on a charming and lively street with lots of restaurants and nightlife, it is humming with customers. I especially recommend the "Frigidarium" flavor as well as the "Florentine". Creamy, rich and flavorful, this is gelato as it should be.

“Best ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I would fly back to Rome just for this ice cream. They had a great selection of flavors and not badly priced. The choice of white chocolate, dark chocolate or whipped cream topping was a great bonus.

“We went here with the kids every night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

An excellent gelateria with families in mid. Affordable, large servings with tones of flavour. The flavours changed each night but the specialities remained. The people behind the counter were kind and patient - even when kids couldn't decide. They spoke gently and described the flavours - often with a taste on a spoon to help you choose. €1 per scoop - perfect. Sometimes there's a queue - worth the wait.

“Amazing!”

Loved the icecream. The options for cream or chocolate toppings make the whole thing decadent and lovely. Great selection of tastes.

“Not as good as I dreamed of...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

I wanted something sublime from this place and got just so-so. The chocolate and mint flavors were overbearing. My teeth hurt after only a small. The texture was also a strange gooey consistency. Not terrible, but there can be found much better in Rome.
