Very Good Gelato in Roma

We were taken to this particular gelato shop by the driver we hired for the day. The owner had lived in Canada and spoke good English so he could explain how he made his different gelato flavors.

I just had one of my very best experiences at a gelateria and I have been to LOTS of them during my three year stay in Italy - and I strive to only go to the very best. Life is too short to eat the gelato of tourists! Mele e Cannella (Apples and Cinnamon) might be out of the way,... More

We were staying nearby and saw this was so well-rated. The guy was really friendly and gives away spoons and spoons of ice cream for you to try first. One day I must have walked out with 7 or 8 spoons! White chocolate was lush, as were any of the chocolate ones really! All the flavours were great, some were... More

We tracked Gelateria Mela e Cannella based on web reviews and we were pleased that we did. Top notch, flavorful and rich gelato. We loved all the flavor we shared between the 3 of us. Some were unique. The only drawback, parking in this neighborhood is a bear. But it is worth the effort to find a parking spot (even... More

We trekked quite far away to find this place, expecting something amazing, owing to it's top position on TA. What we got was a long trip, a little bit lost, and gelato that you could find just about anywhere in Italy. Maybe TA needs to rethink putting ice-cream places in with restaurants on the same list. We really thought that... More

When we asked where we could have a good gelato, we were directed in this small gelateria, not too far from the BB where we were staying... it was a good choice, never had I tasted fruit so well while savouring an ice cream!
