We picked this place based on previous reviews ranking it high for Rome & giving it rave reviews. Sadly it did not 'wow' us. It was good, but our least favorite of the gelato we have had here in Italy. Unfortunately for us the cashier was not able to explain what the flavors were in English, so we had to... More

Delicious! Kids loved it. Daddy and mommy too. 2 EUR for an ice cream is an absolute bargain. Locals lining up to get some says it all. A bit out of the way though for the typical tourist...

This is the kind of gelato that will make you weep because one bite in you'll realize that everything you've had before was garbage. We were lucky enough to stay a block away from Tropical Ice and quickly made it a daily habit. The owner and artisan was delightful and explained the various flavors to us in English. Everything we... More

I'm in love. The greatest icecream ever...and I love icecream. A great variety of flavours and perfect service. I'd go there every day if I lived in Rome.

If you are in Rome you must come here and try the delicious fresh gelato, although be warned it will ruin you forever ;) so many options and I love that most are vegan, the flavors are incredible and you can tell they are made with love each day! 2 days in a row and I wish we were here... More

We were told this was the best gelato in Rome and I believe it. The proprietor was friendly and was able to transact well in english. We also found the prices very reasonable for Rome (2.5 - 4 Euros). The mixing of flavors is allowed (4 on the large!). We've been twice on our week vacation here and I'd like... More

I love coconut flavor ice cream and I tried everywhere that has this flavor, here is the best. So dense so creamy with a lot of coconut inside. Other flavors were also very good. The cone was crispy and the staff was friendly.

Very good ice cream. Good price value, nice staff. The ice cream is creamy, dense and you can find there gluten free, eggs free and lactose free ice creams.
