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.

I tasted a lot of italian gelati, so I can say for myself: here you can find the real deal! Try the coffee and the fior di latte gelato, with cream, of course! They also have all kind of ice-cream desserts. Enjoy!

They make the best ice creem in the World. The place is big and often crowded but you don't have to wait for long. It is not in the center of Rome but you can easily get there by Metro or tram. Sadly it opens at noon but luckily it is open till midnight. The prices are normal, the portions... More

Had some fabulous ice cream here...couldn't get over the number of flavours available. I had chocolate, tiramisu and black cherry; my companion had coconut, pineapple and mango - all equally delicious. The Chocolate was a really intense flavour, almost bitter which I really liked. I reckon there are about 30 flavours. They also do desserts which looked lovely. It was... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
