Description: Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.

“Great stop for ice cream near St Stephens church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Not much to say other than fantastic ice cream right by the most beautiful St Stephens Bascilica.

I had the pistachio, chocolate and strawberry and Mrs Platelicker had white chocolate and chocolate. Great service, delicious ice cream and cheap. Recommended!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

This gelato was one of the places that we wanted to visit on our short visit to Budapest following reading tripadvisor. I am so glad we found it and also that we managed to get there on our last day(30th Mar). We had walked past it and not noticed it a couple of times. The ice cream is lovely and the flavours are delicious. We loved the way it was shaped as a rose. It seemed too good to eat at first but that thought didn't last long. My tip for finding it is stand looking at the front St Stephen's Basillica and it is on the right hand side behind you. If we returned to Budapest we would go back - lots!

“Gorgeous ice cream!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were in Budapest for Easter weekend, finding this place was top of the list as we had our 3 kids! Discovered it on night 2 and were delighted to hear it was opening the next day Sat 30th, made 3 trips there on 3 consecutive days so managed to taste all the flavours between us. 2 scoops in the form of a rose for 400 HUF (so reasonable for us Irish!) Flavours to recommend are the lemon & basil sorbet, strawberry & elderflower sorbet, pistachio, vanilla, mango/mango sorbet............in fact I'm sure they are all gorgeous. All natural ingredients, very friendly owners/staff. It is just located on the left of St Stephens Basilica and next to a lovely wine bar called Da Vino. Overall, totally worth a visit.

“Remodeled & Roses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were in search of ice cream yesterday and found this place on tripadvisor. When we went in, the owner talked to us and told us that they had just reopened after 2 months of remodeling and that by the end of next month there would be 20 flavors of gelato and more seating (which is great because it was cramped in there). The flavors were already very good (I had a flower made from stawberry elderberry and lemon basil and my friend from chocolate and white chocolate-lavender). Will definitely keep going back as it was only 400 ft for the 2 flavors and not much more for 3 flavors and the gelato roses are artwork and delicious.
