The italian ice cream is the best in the world, but this one is probably the best I've ever tried in my life. The prices also are the highest but the quality is really superb. If you like ice scream it's a MUST.

Best in Padova in my opinion. Try the Biscotti del Nonna especially but have tried a number of flavours. Creamy, good value, just go!

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.

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.
