Food - Very good! We tried the gelato here and were very impressed by the generous portions for the price we paid. The gelato was smooth and tasty as well.

If you want to taste the real Italian icecream: go to Fassi! Difficult to choose, but everything tastes great!

Make sure you see the staff member at the till on the right to choose your size before you take a look at the flavours area! You'll need your ticket to order your gelato. We had a... More

We asked several locals where to get the best made ice cream and they all pointed us here. It was simply delicious and enough choices for everyone. You have to go to the cashier to pay and get your order ticket which was easy enough with a well defined line. However, the ice cream counter was a free for all... More

Huge ice cream store with a lot of choices. It's not expensive 1,60-2,00 for ice cream. You can also smell the history when eating your ice cream at night.

This place has been in operation since 1880 and serves one of the best Gelato in Italy. They have an awesome range of flavours. Their Sanpetrino literally melts in the mouth.

My wife and I were positive impressed by this ice cream parlor. The choices and more importantly the taste/s do live up to its reputation and your expectations. Highly recommended and would go there over and over again, whenever back in Rome.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
