I was in Rome for a week in September. Frigidarium had the best gelato, especially when it was chocolate dipped. The line ups can be long later in the evening but it's worth the wait. The location is good, close to Piazza Navona. Enjoy!

Saying this gelato is amazing would be the understatement of the century. The flavors are very pure so if you order a cinnamon it will taste very much like cinnamon as opposed to a creamy base with a hint of cinnamon. Same with the coffee-almost a pure coffee taste-but it is all excellent. What really sends it over the top... More

After waiting in quite a long queue we finally got to taste the gelato and it was great, lots of flavours to chose from and worth the wait but beware the locals like to push to the front

We went to three of the highest rated gelaterias from TripAdvisor dring our stay in Rome, and La Gelateria Frigidarium had the best feel and little extras. The ice cream was tasty, but I felt it was more like American ice cream (thick and sugary) compared to more authentic Italian ice cream (smooth and light). The price was standard at... More

Do not miss this place. Portions are large. Dip everything in wither dark or white chocolate free of charge. I was here for 5 days and got this everyday and sometimes twice a day. All flavors were good and very friendly service. Melts fast in the heat especially with the chocolate dip but so yummy.

Our group of four all agreed this was the best gelato we've ever had. The portions are large and the prices very fair. Very flavorful and they even offer you whipped cream or chocolate on top! Stop by here for a treat - you won't regret it!!

The 10 minute wait was worth it. Good value for a 2€ ice cream cone. Very small place but good selection.

Thank Juan L

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.
