We try many gelaterias in rome. Valentino has in our opinion by far the best ice cream in rome that we tasted. Specially the dark chocolate and the Tiramisu ice cream we liked a lot.

A delight to walk into this establishment. Valentino and his wife are gracious and welcoming even when a lot of people in the shop. He allows you to try flavours prior to purchasing. Everything we tried was fresh natural and delicious. They even suggest which flavour to eat first as well as a flavour that would compliment the one you... More

We made it a point to try not to repeat any single gelato stand while in rome, however this place was by far my husbands favorite and we had to go back to try a few more flavors. They had several great diary-free options. We tried the mango, passion fruit, and dark chocolate--all of which were awesome.

Amazing gelato and such a friendly owner! Allows you to try the gelato before you buy it and if you don't like it you can choose another! Will definitely be returning!

A very tasty ice cream, confirmed by another tourist that also bought one from another store down the street and confirmed that Valentino's Gelato is in another league. Also, if youbdon't like it, you don't pay. At least that's what he said :) Anyway we didn't have to test this :))

We were taking a late night stroll to the Trevi Fountain and happened across the Gelateria Valentino. After observing the activity at the counter for a few minutes, we had to go in and try the gelato. The owner was energetic and entertaining and the gelato was first rate. The store is a quick stroll to the fountain, where we... More

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.
