Ordered a pizza thinking it was a slice and ended up with a nice size personal pizza ! Tasty treat while enjoying my wine, especially after walking around this quAint place . Friendly service and staff was pretty helpful in expediting the order knowing I had limited time.

I went here whilst exploring and do not regret it - absolutely amazing choice of gelato and that isn't the only thing. The cones can be filled with milk or white chocolate and on top of you ice cream you can have Marsala cream. Heaven! The shop does get busy in the evening (with long queues out the door) so... More

That's definitely the best ice cream in Padua. Unfortunately, it is too crowded and you often have to queue before getting to the counter. But it is worth waitin ten minutes for such an icecream. Average prices.

this is one of hose rare gelaterias where fountains of liquid chocolate (dark and white) flow into the bottom of the cone. a lovely deomnstraion of the three generations involved and a reassuring consedaration of waste separation. a queue of matron taking when they've got it! oxes back for the familydinner - they know a good thing! .

First and foremost: The icecream is absolutely delicious. Small downsides: it is a little out of the way and there are not enough tables outside.

The taste is indescribable. Simply the best. This place gave me a very good impression and a memory of my life. :) If you visit Padova, you have to go there.

We must have walked past a dozen gelaterias on route to La Romana. The line was out the door and curved down the sidewalk on a wonderful Friday evening. This establishment was one of the most efficiently run places I have seen in the city. The line moved quickly and steadily even with the multitude of choices you can make... More

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.
