Stopped here after dinner and this was such a great decision. Had the stracciatella dipped in chocolate. It was delicious. Will stop here again.

I went back a second night it was so good. Just great, and they’ll dip it in chocolate or just mix 3 or 4 off their classic and creative flavors. Seems like there’s always a line and rightly so, it’s incredibly delicious.

Wanted to try a good gelato since everyone raves about it, but my wife who loves ice cream has never been a gelato fan. Her US experiences with gelato haven't been very good. I searched out what was supposed to be a good place to...get her to try it. This place changed her mind about gelato and we enjoyed it at several other good places throughout Italy as a result. She had the Amarena and Cassata and was hooked. She had Amarena several times but Cassata was hard to find. If you aren't sure about gelato then try this place as it's really really good.More

We stayed near the Piazza Nagoya in Rome and came upon Frigidarium one night after dinner. It was divine!! Best gelato we’ve ever tasted. Needless to say, we went back every night we were in Rome. Absolutely delicious. Every flavor we tried. Some nights there...were lines to order, but it was more than worth the wait. Amazing!More

Um. Just the most delicious, creamiest, most authentically flavoured ice cream in, maybe, all of Rome. And trust me, when I say we tried a lot of them😉

Rich and decedent gelato! I had the dark chocolate gelato and it was amazing! Definitely not the type of gelato to have everyday but something to treat yourself with after a long day. We also had the pistachio gelato which was very flavorful!

We tried a few different gelato joints in Rome but this one was by far the best. Unique is that you can have your ice cream tub or cone dipped in melted chocolate- which goes hard and is a lovely contrast to the soft serve....We visited 4 times in total- and recommend the florentina, cherry, biscotti and pistachio flavours. The servers were also very friendly and let us try lots of different flavours.More

Very tasty, deserves the long wait. We waited almost 30 minutes in the queue, and the lemon flavor with dark chocolate is very tasty.

We came here late at night, just getting a bit lost through all the small streets and alleys. We stopped here because even at that hour there was a line. We were tended by the owner himself, the gelato master Fabrizio. He was very informative,...very patient, and you get the feeling he truly loves his art. He also gave us tips on attractions and restaurants, wines, a little bit of everything. We will definitely come back just to talk to him againMore

Another really nice gelato place in Rome!! Delicious gelato that was smooth and creamy and full of flavour. Had a line outside so knew it was going to be good and did not disappoint.

Best ice cream the family and I ever had. With whipped cream it was even better. Still after a few years, the children compare all ice cream with this one!

Nice little place to have your gelatos. Pistachio and Hazel flavours were good but I found my kids strawberry much better. To be honest didn't find anything extra ordinary in the gelatos here but it was good. Can visit again.
