I lived in Italy for a couple of years, so I can imagine how a really good gelato tastes and looks like. Believe me this is the most delicious gelato in Hungary. My favourite one is the salted caramel... sometimes I ask 2 big portions to eat :-) Fantastic!!! The place is fully recommended.

Let me preface this by saying I've had "the world's best Gelato" from across Italy (they all claim to be the world's best) but I think this is on par with Gelato from Italy. I had oreo, vanilla, and lavender white chocolate and you could tell they used fresh real ingredients. My husband had mango and pistachio and the mango... More

Across from St. Stephen's, this place is worth visiting for ice cream ... once. The ice cream is good. You can find cheaper, but here they scoop it onto the cone in such a way that the design creates a rose. Definitely worth getting at least two flavors for effect. No line when we were there but heard sometimes there... More

Nice to try. Unique. Should choose different colors ice cream for pretty flowers. It's near the St. Stephen church. Usually there are long lines. They have 2 other shops nearby

Such a cute different take on an ice cream cone. I have never seen anything like it - simple but amazing. This is a must visit while in Budapest the shop is easy to find and the ice cream is very tasty the prices aren't too bad either and the staff are very friendly. Would definitely recommend and visit again.... More

After seeing these beautiful rose shaped cones going by we of course had to stop by for one. I had Mango and Chocolate and I think my sister had raspberry and something else. Also on a side note, there are two of these stores on that street so don't stand in that long line just walk across the street and... More

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.
