“Perhaps the best ice cream in rome (as of march 2013 at least....)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We ended up there nearly by chance after dinner with the kids. A place you would have considered as just averagebfrom outside....but...incredibly friendly and nice owner and incredibly good ice creams. And believe meni am comparing it to what I thought were the two or three top places in rome. In addition it's right in the center near the old jewish ghetto and you get free tasting of all the delicious ice creams they make.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

I am not the best to say what is good and what is bad in the way of gelato, but if you want a memorable experience-go here. And the gelato is good!:). Wonderful, wonderful friendly service. He gives you constant samples of all sorts of flavors, even after we ordered. This is not a place to be missed!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this wondwrful ice cream shop, where we were presented with a wide choice of sorbets and ice creams. We were offered to try every flavour before we made our final choice which we took full advantage of and the end result was a feast for the eyes, so much so we took a picture :) delicious... Try the ricotta and pear Beautiful... Excellent service

“Don't miss this experience if you are in Rome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The owner's personality is as great as the gelato! Taste test many, decide on one or two and enjoy your walk through the neighborhood.

“Glorious gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We found this was not too far from where we were staying so made sure we made this the final stop of the day, on our final evening- It didn't disappoint.
The friendly owner offered us to taste what we wanted. I am not ashamed to admit that I most probably tried at least six different flavours before settling on my final three as did the b/f.
It was all delicious and made even more enjoyable by the warm welcome and cheerful banter of the owner. My only regret is that we didn’t go there sooner.
Highly recommend.
