Stopped here for a coffee, which was very good. My wife decided on an ice cream and I had to drag her out. She kept wanting to go and try ANOTHER ONE. Very pleasant service. We were here on a Sunday and it was very busy with locals buying ice cream buy the kilo and pasticcini for their lunches. Its... More

No wonder we are putting on a few extra kilos this trip - what a fabulous cafe, coffee great cakes to die for, simply delicious. Such a choice you can not stop at 1 or 2....after all they are only petit fours, staff are friendly and helpful. Must try the ice cream when we go back in later this week.

This place sells traditional home made ice cream : the Tartufo ice cream is simply delicious. Around the corner is the Palazzo Vescovile, saw it's on the way if you want to go for a nice stroll in Monopoli

Situated in a pleasant square separating the old and new parts of Monopoli, Cafe Roma appears to be extremely popular with the locals. Firstly, the ice cream is to die for ( the best we've tasted in a long while) and it's a great place to people watch. It's a busy cafe and appears to be a meeting place for... More

We tried a few places before finding Cafe Roma. Our search for the best gelato in Monopoli was over. Wish we had enough time to sample all the flavours!

We passed by this place many times but only went there after I searched for a place with good cappuccinos on TA. I just wanted something that wasn't Illy coffee. The cappuccino was really very good(coming from a girl who deals with specialty coffee and does not drink regular milk very often)! The pastries and cookies were lovely and we... More

Fairly standard local cafe. Did not think the choice was very exciting. Also service was 3 grumpy old men. You get your ice cream then have to double back into the back of the shop to pay.

Excellent Ice Cream! Only inconvenient of the place is probably the high number of people waiting in line in the evening to get their ice cream!

My family (brother, sister, mother) and I spent 3 days in Rome, Italy before spending a week in Monopoli (my grandparents home town!). We tasted a LOT of gellato during these 10 days! But once we found Cafe Roma (very close to our vacation rental also!), we stopped trying anywhere else! Their gellato was the BEST!! We also tried a... More

Our trips frequently focus on great gelato, where to find it, what flavors, what cost, etc. We have been fortunate to find some lovely places along the way. This is good..
