Funny shaped icecream with a nice flavour! There was a queue but we got helped pretty quickly. Must visit!

It is placed near the basilica "St. Stephan". If you want to eat something for dessert, you should eat here with a shape of rose. Also there are many variations of ice-cream. When we went to eat, there wasn't a big queue. The prices can...More

This little shop is opposite St. Stephen's Basilica in the centre of Budapest - with another branch just around the block. You choose your flavours from a great selection and they sculpt a quite beautiful flower in the cone before your eyes. Two flavours cost...More

We walked by here every night of our stay and each time we walked by there was a huge line. Finally we decided to see what the fuss was about. The gelato is delicious and they make roses out of your selection.

There is actually two of these 1 block apart. If the line is out the door on Szent Istvan St then head 1 block east to Sas Utca and it is right on the corner, plus this one has vegan pastries.

The ice cream sculptures are excellent and so simple. It's fascinating watching the server put layer upon layer of ice cream petals and you can also pick a variety of flavours to decorate or even colour code your rose with. If you're not popping in...More

I always loved the rose shaped icecream. Usually it was really tasty, but today I was deeply dissapointed. Over half of the icecreams were vegan this and vegan that. I understand that people need low sugar icecream maybe I could also understand a few vegan...More

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your Gelarto Rosa ice cream experience, and that it didn’t match your past experiences with us. However, the vegan idea is neither modern or trendy – we simply recognize, as many restaurants do, that many of our...More

I'm sorry I really don't know. Like others I was fascinated by the beautiful design. Perhaps they could put the ice-cream in a tub?

Description
Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is the best ice cream in our 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! n.
