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.

Our first taste of real Italian ice cream was a great one! The small queue outside on a quite street shows that this place has a growing reputation. Chocolate dipped on top of the ice cream added further to the taste!

Tiny little venue serving the finest gelato. Recommended by the boys at Likeat we found it tucked away in a side street. Clearly a place who's reputation precedes it. We were fortunate enough to miss the long queues which developed soon after we'd ordered. Highly recommended ice cream pit stop.

Amazing gelato - great selection of fruit and non fruit flavours with the choice of cream or chocolate topping! Definitely one of the best places to go with very generous servings.

I remember coming here a few years ago, when few people knew about it, and I was blown away. Nowadays, the lines can be unreal. This past June, I counted 40 people in front of me, and as good as I knew the place was, I was still saying to myself, "Is this really worth it?" The answer depends on... More

Stumbled upon this place. It was the queue out the door everytime we passed it that made us notice it! We weren't disappointed! Highly recommend it.

3 euros for a wonderful ice cream! You can see people cooking the ice cream, cutting fruits in the back. Really tasty!

We were wandering on the streets of Rome when we found this gelato place near the Navona. I took my all-time favourite pistachio flavour while my wife took the tiramisu. both were amazing with the tiramisu winning the title. ☺

When in Italy you see gelato everywhere but this place is different. The line is long but well worth the wait. They even had a few really unique flavors but the icing on was the white chocolate they dipped our gelato in. It literally turned a crunchy hard shell of chocolate over our yummy soft and creamy gelato. If you... More

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.
