This gelateria is a bit farther from the touristy areas, so it's not as expensive. The lady who worked there was incredibly kind, and her gelato was my favorite that I had while in Italy.

The older woman behind the counter was very enthusiastic about giving us samples, and she was very proud of the fact that all of the gelato was literally hand-made; they make these by hand! Very few, if any, machines are used to make this AMAZING...creamy delicious gelato! We had a lot of gelato while we were in Rome, but this was by far our favorite! The vegan peach and the pistachio were my top choices.More

The owner were really nice and if you are vegan or looking for gluten free gelato,they have a lot of flavor to offer. This gelato shop is actually an artisanal gelato and this place is recognised as one of the best gelato in Rome.

Do not know what is better the wonderful women serving the gelato or eating the gelato. An amazing place with great atmosphere. If you are in the Testaccio, you must stop for a great experience.

We first tasted the delicious gelato here back in 2016. Back in Rome, we had to return. Same friendly faces, same delicious gelato. Over two visits, I tasted 8 flavours, each one excellent, topped off with a generous dollop of chocolate sauce, or chantilly cream...if you prefer. Or maybe both?More

We visited this Gelateria almost every night during our stay in the Testaccio neighborhood. It is family run and you can peek into the kitchen where they make the gelato. The same folks were working the counter every night we went. They were gracious and...patient as we ordered in broken Italian and English. I love frequenting little shops like this and you will too. And most important: the gelato was fantastic! We recommend the coconut, chocolate, or strawberry with cream on top.More

The ice cream lady is adorable, and really great at suggesting flavor combinations. The ice cream is the best traditional ice cream you will find in Rome. If you're into "gourmet stuff" you won't find it here, but you will find the best fruit you...can possibile imagine. Plenty of vegan flavors (as it traditionally used to be!).More

Nice gelato shop, but frankly I didn't think it better than many others in Rome. Happy to find it open when most others were closed one night, but I think the rave reviews are a little over the top.
