A cute cafe with various desserts, ice creams and cakes. The little cakes we had were tasty and there were several other people inside the cafe which leads me to believe they enjoyed it also. The price was fair and the service was average, they...took a while to come to us but once they did the waiter was very polite. A bird managed to get inside and was amusing to watch, otherwise it is not the most scenic place to have coffee.More

Famous gelato place for a few hundred years. Good gelato, but not the best I ate. Considering the amount of gelato and the size of the cup they give you they deserve 5 stars. We paid 4 euros for 4 scoops. Good and affordable.

Capped off a day of Roman exploration with gelato at Giolitti - and it did not disappoint! It was a perfect nighttime treat. The lines weren't too crazy, which was a plus. The gelato itself? Delicious! Exactly what you crave on a Roman evening. 🇮🇹

Walked past this late at night and paid a visit. We didn’t realise how good it would be. It was only after we checked the reviews and realised we stumbled across a gem of a place! We went there twice, it’s busy but very much...worth it! Great selection to choose from and very helpful staffMore

Giolitti feels like one-of-a-kind. The crowded and bustling vibe of the queue complements the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff beautifully. The gelato was pricy for Rome, but I can wholeheartedly say it was the best I ever ate. Every aroma we tried was unique...and felt like the real thing, and the texture was as soft as they come. If you do come here, especially at peak times, do expect to wait in a long line, but it moves quickly. Enjoy!More

Awful experience, terrible stuff members, haotic place and untasteful ice cream. I don’t understand why someone would wait in line there. There are so many great ice cream places, this one is not one of them. Avoid.

Lovely old fashioned interior with staff dressed in old uniforms.. we had nice coffee and pastries and on another occasion had gelato which was nice but in my opinion not amazing.. the queues here a different times of the day are ridiculously long and very...crowded but at other times it’s nice and quiet with no problem getting seating. We found the staff to be pleasant and the gelato was nice but think it has been over hyped on social media and there is equally as nice if not better gelato in Rome in some of the smaller quieter placesMore

I don't recommend. Very unsafe place as my purse was stolen inside and the waiters were uncooperative and even aggressive.

Rude staff. Others have said it too and they are right. There are some many equally if not better places to have ice cream and lovely pastries, so avoid the rude staff here and go somewhere else.

You are in a long, chaotic line so when you approach the expansive counter of gelato flavours, you can only see what's near you. I was yelled at for asking about flavours further away that I couldn't see. Shocked at this attitude, I asked for...my ticket to be returned to get my money back - at this the arrogant man serving me backed down giving me the chance to try gelato was nothing special. There are plenty of gelato places in Rome, DON'T GO HERE!More
