I was so lucky to find this place while I was waiting for the motorbike to arrive and start my tour. I loved all the flavors I got, yes flavors because I got three scopes and I am not big fan of the gelato but this guy made me change my mind. Yummy ice cream in the middle of hot... More

We were walking and stumbled upon this restaurant and we were not disappointed when we ate here. My husband had lasagna, my daughter had pizza and I had eggplant parmigiana. The portions were good and the wine was amazing! I would also recommend trying the bruschetta if you are going to eat here. The prices were also very reasonable. We... More

After a couple of hours in the sun going round the Colosseum, yesterday, followed by an hour or so in the even hotter sun at the Roman Forum, we crossed the road and found Heaven at the bottom of Cavour! We had a couple of the best gelatos we have ever tasted, with whipped cream on top. And at only... More

Small shop with a few seats outside and in. Good selection of gelato - try the pistachio, if that's normally up your street you'll love it here, tastes really fresh and is mixed with some choc. The man serving behind the counter was friendly too. Way better than Gelateria la Paloma near the Trevi Fountains where the woman serving had... More

Coming to this place was the worst decision. The reason is, I love pistachio ice cream and after ordering it from Gelateria La Dolce Vita, I know what it can and probably should taste like. It was amazing! Divinity itself! Now I'm ruined for when I return home! Truly the Gelato from this establishment is heavenly and a perfect respite... More

Not all gelato is the same. This is real, homemade gelato at a great price. Many flavor options and the owner has lots of personality. There are many fakes in the area so beware. This place had delicious gelato!

Shop is located near to the Colosseum (and pretty close to our Hotel too) so had to take a try. It was worth it - as a friend of ice creams, I liked it a lot.
