Small little gelateria which offers some very unusual types of ice cream. The ice cream is great. Highly recommended.

Such a large range of unusual flavours and reasonably priced too. The chocolate orange flavour is a favourite of mine. Make sure you try this during your stay!

This place has one of the best gelato in the city of Rome, I drive sometimes 25 minutes to get gelato here with friends and family. This is not a simple gelato store this is a boutique of gelato. Great job Federica & Gianluca!!!

We tried at least eight gelateria a in Rome, and this place had the most inventive flavors for sure, but the quality of the gelato wasn't that great. We much rather go to Venchi or Gracchi, which were our favorites.

15 min walk from the coliseum but worthy. The sorbets are to die for and the gelato just fab. My daughter had lemon and wild strawberry. So so good! Bravo.

Hot habanero cream is way to spicy! One tiny taste was enough for me and Ian (max tried a whole scoop). The cream cheese is awesome as is the ginger and cinnamon. They also have a selection of frozen yogurt and soy products.

We liked it so much that we went back a second time. The flavours were wonderful I was interested to try the gorgonzola which I really liked but I did find some lumps of ice as a previous traveller had commented. The chocolate is incredibly...More

For the past several years I have been on a quest to find the best gelato in Rome (and Italy) and have probably had close to 200. A very important concept to understand in judging gelaterias is that no one makes the best of every...More

Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is
Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of
ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and
embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the
vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around
the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of
surprises like the clever little keyhole at the
