We went to Bocca di Dama expecting some decent Gelato. The place appears not a tourist trap as some many others around do. But don't be deceived by that. The ice cream is watery, portions are minuscule. To be avoided.

Oh my gosh, Gelato! Go here, put that beautiful, creamy, frozen stuff in your face! We stumbled into this place, and went back twice more after that. Considering it was over close to 3 km from our hotel, that tells you about the gelato! It was obviously small batch, and home made. Get the coffee, it has little flakes of... More

Wow! How good was the coco and pistachio gelati! Amazingly fresh and tasty. My wife had tiramisu and said it was soooo good! Not too sweet but full of flavour! The guy was also very friendly and helpful! Going back tomorrow for more!!

We stopped by for quick gellato. Place looks great, very stylish, advertised by home made ice creams. Great then - we left €5 for 4 portions. Well, portions was small and gellato was tasteless. Just average sweet ice creams. Service was impolite. I'm giving 3 because of the nice local and cool inside room where you can sit and eat... More

Didn't eat here but grabbed a gelato on the run Wow! The dark chocolate was to die for and I cannot imagine a more flavoursome gelato experience . If in the neighborhood this is well worth the stop.

Probably the best ice cream we had in Rome, and that's saying something. If you're passing by don't miss it. Lots of other treats on offer too.

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.
