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

Really nice homemade ice cream!! Very good quality, super tasty and actually quite good for the price! If you are close to the Colosseum it should be a must!

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.

Very friendly owner of this gelateria and a good selection of gelato! We came in when the euro cup Ba,e between Italy and Spain was on. The owner was really into the game but still served us watching the game and engaging with us.

I have never had Ricotta Gelato so I had to try it...one taste and my husband and I were in LOVE!!! Never saw it again in any of the many Gelato places we visited so had to go back for more before we left...PS Free Whipped Cream if you desire, and no rip-off tourist prices, even though it's in a...

That pretty much says it all. All the Gelato shops we hit had terrific fare, so when these guys distinguish themselves with great service and whipped cream on top, they deserve a shout out.

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
