Friendly owners and server. The dark chocolate "award-winning" flavor is amazing, as are many of the other flavors. Even with the smallest cup size, they throw in a nice mini-cone on top!

This was our favorite gelateria in all of our Honeymoon trip. We had been told by a friend it was the best, and we agree. Absolutely excellent-- and wonderful and kind people running this establishment. :)

I wanted to try the famous gelato in Rome. At first I went to this other location but the service was bad and quiet expensive . I paid 24euros for 2 large cups. Next day we happened to be at the same location so we decided to try this other gelato shop. The owner was so nice , he was... More

I've been to Italy many times and tried various places for gelato, this is definitely the best. I first stumbled across this place in 2013 and was very tasty with excellent customer service. The couple running it were very friendly! Very reasonably priced in comparison to others in the area, but the flavours here are heads and shoulders above the... More

When your children tell you their highlight is not not just the Gelati, but the man who serves it, you know you have hit on a winner. My kids have refused to go anywhere else for Gelati for our 5 days here. A winner!

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
