It was just an average gelato place, and I wouldn't recommend to come here because it really isn't on the way to any attractions anyway. Tried the banana flavour, which was alright, but the rest is really average at best.

This is one of the best gelaterias in all of Rome! Unlike many other gelaterias which sell fake gelato(made with powder) this is genuine and delicious! It is very inexpensive too! Only 1 euro per scoop (and 2 scoops is plenty). They will also put...More

We ate at the location of this gelato place that is about a 10-15 minute walk from Circus Maximus - it is not the main location. We had very unusual flavors, which was really neat. The service was good. They offered me lots of tastes,...More
