We tried the top 3 rated gelaterias on Trip Advisor and Frigidarium is by far the best. They have many flavors to choose from and you can ask them to cover your ice cream with hot chocolate that in contact with the cold ice cream turns into solid icing. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They give you a cookie and whipped cream or chocolate sauce with your gelato, but in comparison to the intensely flavored gelato we've had elsewhere, this paled in comparison.

No matter where we went in Rome, we always found our way back to this wonderful little gelato store. We had been told by others that it was the best gelato in Italy so we had to try it...it's wonderful! It didn't hurt that it was just a block from our apartment in Rome, so it was easy to make a quick trip for a late night snack. Here's an idea...try a couple of different gelato places before you go to the Frigidarium...you'll understand why people say it's so good!

After dinner down the alley @ Cantina&Cantuna, the next stop was for gelato to walk off our evening with.

Ask what is most popular and they do give their honest opinion.
I took the pistachio, canola and tiramisu . . . STUNNING!!
All naturally amazing in Italian culture , so i aways stay away from the fruity stuff.

Unlike other places, this places offers you cream on top, or to be dipped in chocolate! My hubby had the cream, which is real cream because it wasn't sweet and packed with sugar, and i had the chocolate which encased the gelato and was almost dark chocolate!

We just couldn't believe how rich it was!
And you can have it at any time of the day , preferably evening so you avoid the crowds and truly absorb the gelato and sit on their benches outside, not just guzzle it down quick because of the heat by day.
