Get gelato in a cone filled with liquid chocolate and then topped with creamy deliciousness. A medium gets you 3 scoops and all of the 5 flavours i tried (over 3 days) were amazing..

Love icecream? Are you in Bergamo and fancy some? There are many icecream shops in this city, but we were advised to try some in the best local "gelatteria" : La Romana. There we went, and having travelled a bit I can say I cannot remember having enjoyed such wonderful tastes before!

Very good ice cream with smoothly look and taste. We got the champagione with marsala aged wine and raising with alcohol, both nice! I would prefer the gelato to be in opened boxes so to see, before order but we watched other people ordering and staff was pleased to explain and let us taste!

The best gelateria in Bergamo. Very popular, you have to wait in line, but it is so worth it. The flavors old classics and new creative one as well. My only regret is that I did not go there 3 times every day.

The gelato was nice but all of them are covered in metal urns so your decision has to be made purely from the descriptions on the boards behind the counter. Since they're slightly more in depth that normal, if your Italian isn't great, without being able to see what looks good, it makes this more difficult than it needs to... More

I was suggested by friends living in Bergamo to try the place. I truly like chocolate and cream based gelato, and I wasn't disappointed I took the dark chocolate, spearmint, and bacio... Truly creamy and not watery like other places. Indeed they aren't "light" but thick and of rich flavor The amount served on a cone is not that much,... More

This gelateria is in central lower Bergamo. Poor hygiene as mostly to have to queue with dog walkers not too concerned with licking dogs. You can't see what "ice creams" you get as they are in lidded containers served after paying. What you get I would cataguorize as chilled Patisserie Creme not refreshing on a hot summer's day

Possibly the best gelato I have tasted. From the service to the flavor options, it was a stellar experience. The pistachio gelato is to die for!! Do not miss this place when you are in Bergamo

Description
La Romana gelato parlour was born in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini in 1947, receiving the name of the founder's daughter. A few years later Vito Zucchi, progenitor of the family, took over the enterprise. Thanks to his fervent creativity and the use of a few ingredients then available, he created a wide range of high-quality flavours which are still made in our stores today. For this reason, we offer traditional flavours made exclusively with selected products, following old recipes of the past.
