...for any other kind of gelato. This place is amazing. The flavored are fresh, the service is fab. Even though the line can be long, it's worth the price of admission to the "best gelato on the planet club."

You'd never think that the best gelato in Rome would be in such a touristy area - but it is... This place is definitely worth a special stop.

A good Gelato place. A. Bit hard to reach but it's worth if you are in the area. Coffee was really good and chocolate was also good. Kids took the vanilla which was good but nothing special Worth a try

Cheap and excellent ice cream, the best I had in Rome by far. A small portion is only 2 euro, which is also very cheap (usually it is 2.5-3 euro, or 5 euro near the Vatican, god bless the seller there). They have tasty and interesting flavours and you can also dip the ice cream in chocolate or cream sauce... More

Excellent ice cream. Very reasonable prices. And you are not the only people that know about it! Be prepared to queue, but it is worth the wait!

We have tried at least 6 gelato places around rome before this one and this one is a standout. A medium 3 scoop waffle is only 3 euro and they dip it in chocolate white or milk. Busy little place with a line at times but well worth the wait!

Lovely ice cream. The chocolate sauce topping made it very rich. The after eight flavour was very strong. White chocolate was the best.

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
