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.

“Gorgeous ice cream, gorgeous service! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Gorgeous ice cream, gorgeous service!
The long line moved quickly and there's plenty to look at in this sweet little shop while you wait. The rest of the menu is worth a look too, we shared a tiramiusu latte (add cocoa and rum!), and it warmed the soul :-)

“After lunch stop-over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Interesting type of flavours of ice-cream in this place. A few minutes wait in line, just enough to decide what combination of flavours I want.

Plus very a nice service with positive energy from the girls at the counter!

Lovely taste of the ice-cream, definitely worth a visit!

“Amazing Ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Located in a lovely place next to St. Stephens basilica.
So many great flavours to choose from and 2 scoops for just over £1. So worth it! The ice cream is presented in a beautiful rose shape and tastes delicious. Definitely go here!
Good coffee too!

“Excellent ice cream presented beautifully!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We visited gelato rosa after visiting the St. Peter's bascilla, it's literally right outside the bascilla so a perfect location. The service was great, the lady was very friendly, the ice cream was delicious and it looked so pretty in the shape of a rose! Definitely recommend visiting and will return while in budapest. Value for money is great.
