Nearby where I was crashing and some of the best gelato I've had in Rome or anywhere else. The price wasn't a ripoff and that was pretty cool considering prices in the center and the staff was nice. I stopped by as often as I could during my last short trip.

The first time when I was so disappointed picking up the place with a good rate on Tripadvisor. The ice cream wasn't tasty at all and I really do not understand all the great reviews. I had stracciatella and zabaione tastes - the former had very hard and crunchy pieces of chocolate which wasn't even good chocolate and the ice... More

Most recomended ice cream in Itally, next to the Vatican city wall next to Piazza Del Risorgimento, you have to try the Nutella and chocolate with chocolate chuncks on a cone, we had to come back the next day from far away, most recomended

Today, we had our ice cream from here after our dinner. It was reasonably tasty. Its amount was quite huge, compared to the others. However, the staff was really impatient to allow us to choose our favourite flavours among many ones. Anyway, it would be a nice place for everyone to have average delicious ice cream after your Vatican visit.

Was recommended this place by a friend and paid it a visit after the Vatican museums on a hot day in July. I was not disappointed, the ice cream was amazing! I loved the variety of the flavours. Some I had never seen before. The only reason I can't give it a 5 is because my partner is lactose intolerant... More

I've been going to Old Bridge near the Vatican (on the way from St. Peter's Square to the museum) on visits to Rome for 15 years. It remains the best gelato - and best priced (2 big scoops for 2 euro) I've had in Italy. Definitely make a stop. It's much better than the gelaterias in the center and listed... More

We got to this place by it being reccommended by a family member, who lived in the neighborhood for several years. I tried it 8 years ago and I was amazed. I tried it this year too and found many more options to buy and taste. You can't actually choose from all of them at once, that's why you have... More

Excelent sellers. It could be interesting to be able to pay in Credit Card in order to avoid to go to the bankomat.

Great gelato. Good selection of flavours. For €4 you get 4 flavours. You get a lot of gelato for €4, unlike other places that give you small scoops and that's it. If like me you like ice cream in "reasonable " quantities, you will appreciate this place more than other places that sell ice cream. You will not be disappointed.

Thank serjpop

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
