After seeing the reviews and checking out every Gelato spot in Rome, I had to visit here. There are so many different flavours to choose from at such a reasonable price. It can get very busy, and the staff do appear quite stressed out at...More

We arrived in Rome and made a stop at Giolitti the first night. We were getting familiarized with the area and stopped to try their Gelato. It was 11:30pm and it was packed! We found it to be ok but not what we expected. We...More

Fantastic flavours in both fruit gelato and regular gelato. Definitely worth a visit. The queuing system is a bit strange if you don’t read the signs... you pay near the door and then get your gelato from the counter with your receipt.

This was the best ice cream, we’ve ever had! The shop is really crowded, but don’t be afraid of the long queue, they are really fast! You have to pay first and then choose your ice Creme. It’s decently worth it, you won’t be disappointed!

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
