Just go!! By far the best ice-cream you can find in Utrecht, the country and maybe the whole world! Fair ingredients, fair price, surprisingly nice weekly changing flavors (Mai Prima) and the friendliest owner you can find (tip: follow him on Facebook / Instagram). Don't be afraid for the waiting line on sunny days, just go!!

The kids where grumpy from all the rain so we took them to Roberto's for some home made Ice Cream. It is in my opinion worth visit even if it's just to experiment with the pizza flavoured ice cream or cucumber. For the less adventurous, all the usual favourites are on hand and try the seasonal sorbet I had rhubarb.... More

It was a bit of fun to queue with so many others just to get gelato, the queue moved quickly and soon all the delicious choices were revealed. No one rushed you and the staff were pleasant and friendly you didn't feel pressured it was as if no one else was behind you and I liked that feeling. I had... More

Roberto's is certainly the best place in Utrecht to go for ice cream, every week there's new kind of flavours, all very delicious. Don't be scared away by the long line, it goes fast and it's really worth it!

We live nearby Roberto's and go there all the time. The gelato is really excellent, for sure the best one I have found in the Netherlands. There are always a lot of people, but don't be scared, the line goes fast. Besides all the big classic flavors, they have a fun new creation every week. You don't want to miss... More

Hidden away ice cream shop with all manner of flavours, as well as new mixtures youre welcome to try. Little seating areas inside and out, as well as very close to the park, the staff are superb and don't mind photos being taken/ taking weeks to translate each flavour. Would highly reccomend.

This place is so popular! Once you have visited you realise why. Lots of choice of home made ice creams - and toppings You may have to wait in a very long queue - but it's worth it!

Clear sky, beautiful sun and a nice walk in the park. The only thing missing? A tasty gelato. Just few blocks from Giftpark I found the best gelato I've ever had in the Netherlands.

As an Italian expat it's hard for me to find good icecream but this time I was super lucky! Good icecream made with fresh products, friendly staff and cozy place. Pistacchio taste highly recommended! I'll come back!
