Walking down the street in Genoa and we saw this cute gelato shop - didn't plan to eat gelato at that point in the day but couldn't resist. So glad we stopped to taste it, because it was the best we've ever had, and we know our gelato! :) Rosa was so sweet and gave us lots of unique samples,... More

A local advised this place to me, and it's worth coming. Low prices and one of the best ice-creams made of natural components )) I've tried rose, dark chocolate and pistachio ))) awesome! Thank you, Rosa!

I have tried alot of gelato in Italian cities but this takes the crown! It's evident that the choice of ingredients is superior and the way it is made is really from a special part of the owners soul! The best part is her story. The rosa, mimosa, dark chocolate and the one I call 'brazil' ( Macedonia) are no... More

The experience we had in this ice-cream parlour has been one of the defining experiences of the whole 10-day trip in Italy. The passion, the flavours and most importantly - ROSA: the owner is simply amazing. This place is the most popular place on the street - and its noticable. When me and my friend sat there for about an... More

Apart from being good, Rosa's ice creams are made with the finest ingredients, with no additives or other unhealthy stuff! Some flavours are also without milk and with cane sugar instead of white sugar. Above all they're made with love! Rosa speaks several languages, elle parle français aussi ! Oui, les Parfums de Rose !

I came here based on Google reviews and they were spot on. This gelateria serves amazing, creative ice cream. I had dark chocolate with seven spices, paired with a tangy and refreshing apricot ice cream. Can't wait to have some more!!

The best gelato in town. Made by Rosa who lets you taste the ice creams before you buy. Rosa also serves the ice cream so she knows her product well. Her knowledge of English is very good. We had a good talk to her and she recommended a lovely tea shop. We thought our ice creams were so good we... More

We were 2 couples and enjoyed gelati here on our 2 visits to Genoa last week. They were quite the best we have had. The helpful owner is also the maker of the wide variety of gelati. She produces special extra flavours for particular occasions. Some of her products had just been freshly made. The price is only €2 for... More

I was in Genoa in 2010, but TripAdvisor won't let me pick a date earlier than listed. It's been a while but I still remember wandering the streets in the evening looking for dessert. I stumbled on Rosa's shop and walked in. My Italian was REALLY bad at that time so I struggled through with my French and English and... More
