Really nice ice cream with the added novelty of shaping it. But really nice place with friendly staff.

Fab idea to make the humble ice cream really special. Unusual flavours and a lovely atmosphere all for a very reasonable price. Try the gingerbread.

This is the only place in Budapest where we ended up twice on our visit because of their amazing hot chocolate! It's so thick it falls off your spoon in lazy dribbles! We didn't get to try the ice-cream though, just too cold for that! Next time though for sure, because we will be back. Awesome little place!

Some of the tastiest Gelato I've ever had. Loved this place so much we went twice in two days. I recommend the chocolate and Nutella flavours but between my girlfriend and I we tried a few and they were all great.

I got one Lavender Eiscreme - no words to describe ! Beautiful place with a lot of delicious Eiscremes - it is one "must be" in Budapest especially in warm months when you walk by St-Stephans Basilika!

We came across this place after visiting the church and noticing the queue out the door when we were sitting in the square. The shop was busy but it's clear to see why! The staff were friendly and the design of the ice cream was brilliant, shaped like the petals of a rose. Great selection of flavors, of which you... More

Extremely good ice cream with odd and special flavors. At first, you'll be sceptical about lavander white chocolate, but after the first bite, you'll know you've made the right choice.

As I said in my review a year ago, these ice creams deserve 10 stars. The combination of tastes are amazing and there are always something new to try. We are not going to miss it on our next visit to Budapest.

They put the ice cream together as pedals of a rose. Good flavour and very nice staffs. Always a long queue outside the shop but the staffs were not pushy. Be very kind to my mum who couldn't decide what she wanted!

Description
Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
