My husband & I found Gelateria Valentino on TA, and stopped in one night after a late dinner. It was nearly 11pm and the shop was still open. I had a Nutella gelato, and my husband had the candy bar flavor. For the smallest size, it was 2€ and quite reasonable. As we sat on the inside benches to eat our gelatos, the owner came out and started talking with us. You could tell he was very proud (and rightly so!) of his product. He offered us a taste of his dark premium chocolate flavor. I am not a huge chocolate person, so I would not have thought to order it, but to simply taste it and experience the deep, intense chocolate flavor was incredible! It was like eating brownie batter, but so much more luxurious!
We chatted for a bit, and sure, I'll admit the owner was downright flattering to me when we discussed the fact that many Roman restaurants serve frozen food, but even if we hadn't, I would still recommend that any visitors try Gelateria Valentino! We are off to other cities in Italy, but will be back one night in Rome before the final trip home, and we will have to visit the gelateria again!
