“Great ice cream”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

I had the lemon and the maracuja flavours and they were great! They were sweet and sour at the same time, and absolutely refreshing. Try it! For 2 flavours it is 2 euros, and you get quite a lot.

Thank Irina P

“Ask for the Frigidarium flavor and get a cookie on top of your cone!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The attendants are friendly and the ice cream is delicious!
Get some chocolate topping and ask for the house's flavor to get a cookie on your ice cream!

“Best gelato in Rome”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

When my family visited Rome, we did a "gelato crawl" where we went to one gelateria every day. This was by far our favorite, and a great location too. You can tell they use all natural ingredients since the mint is a greenish/grey, and the banana is grey also. I think that's what I liked most about it. The tiramisu was TO DIE FOR. Absolutely worth the long line.

“Life-changing Gelato”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Gelaterias are everywhere in Rome, especially on warm summer days. So for one to stand out, it must be special, and we are not alone in remembering the rich, complex flavor and textures of the gelato at Frigidarium. We heard of it through Serena Cantagalli, our amazing tour guide.

Then location is great as well - on a lovely side street leading up to the Piazza Navona.

Not to be missed.

“High Quality Gelato!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stumbled across this place by accident and decided to take a chance (how can you go wrong, really). But this turned out to be our favourite gelateria in Rome. The flavours were fresh and the serving sizes were generous. Delicious!
