if you are in Rome you must go for an ice cream at Giolitti. It is not a very big restaurant but his ice cream and every else made to refresh you are deliciuos

Every time I'm in Rome Giolotti is a must for an excellent gelato. The long queue is proof of the quality but coming back is always a pleasure.

I used to be a regular customer of Giolitti , some years back when I was living in Rome. Back to Rome with my daughters, I was excited to let them taste this famous gelato. Unfortunately, the ice-cream, is just average, and the queue is huge. On top of that, the "panna" ( whipped cream ) was a bit acid... More

Lots of different flavors, so it's hard to pick just a few. But there is something for EVERYONE! Long lines but worth the wait.We returned the next day for some more of the best gelato in Rome :)

I'm addicted to ice-cream. So, Imagine my joy when I had few scopes there! Rich flavor, real , natural products that I could taste, and "give me more" feeling that last for few weeks. Don't miss it.

The gelatos at Florence (especially Vivoli) were better. Is this place worth a 30 minute wait? No because it's more of a tourist trap and its gelato was indistinguishable from the other gelatos you get at less touristy places in Rome. I'll put it on par with Grom for taste. Maybe a wider selection (the rice flavoured gelato was interesting)... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
