Best gelato in Rome. Most innovative flavors. Always fresh. A must visit, daily, when in the city. You would not be disappointed.

Situated in a small side street by the side of the Pantheon this little cremeria is absolutely first class. There are several sizes of tubs or cones from which to chose and a bewildering selection of gelato flavours. Our favourite was rose petal, with almond, cherry, chocolate and lemon coming close behind. It was so good we kept finding excuses... More

Whenever my husband and I are in Rome, we always stop by this small family-run gelateria in the side street beside the Pantheon. We love their ice-cream, the smooth consistency, and their intensely nutty hazelnut and pistachio flavours, our joint favourite. Service is friendly and always with a smile. We have eaten ice-cream in many cities and think their hazelnut... More

My sis got a 'cremolato' which was absolutely fantastic! i really wanted an ice cream. I was very disappointed. it did not have a lot of taste. I forgot what i... More

OMG if you only eat one ice cream in Rome it is here, the place is not big or flashy it is just to the right of the Pathenon and you may miss it if you are not careful, they do not have to tout for your custom on the street or have flashng lights saying here I am there... More

We stumbled onto Cremeria Monteforte after doing some shopping around the Pantheon area (we ended up buying some beautiful Italian leather handbags and a bunch of coffee products). We were looking for a gelato break before heading back to our hotel to drop off our goods and stumbled onto this spot. The gelato here is about the same price as... More

My wife, cousin, and I stopped at this Gelatoria right after visiting the Pantheon and before walking to the Forum and Colosseum. It was the best of many gelatos we had in places like Florence, Siena, Volterra, Lucca, and Pisa. The chocolate mousse flavor I had was like eating real European chocolate mousse made into ice cream. And with the... More

We have come to Monteforte when visiting Rome for 17 years, and it is still the best gelato in Rome (we do eat gelato other places too). If anything, it gets better, which is hard to imagine. Creamy, but still icy, amazingly true flavours AND in addition to several dairy-free fruit flavours, dairy-free dark chocolate which is to die for!!... 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.
