“Best Ice Cream in Rome”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Besides Il GRom at Piazza Navona, it's the best Gelateria in Rome. The Tiramisu, the Pistachio, The Maracuya, and Gianduia ice creams were our favorites. It's great and open until late at night. The staff are very frindly and speaks good english. Really love this place. With lived in Rome and came here hundreds of times. Don't miss it and the prices are good too.

This gelateria is across the way from the best pizza we had in rome - Pizzeria Buffeta. It was a fantastic dessert for a fantastic meal. The area is hidden in a neighborhood, and surrounded with interesting bars and shops. If you get their signature flavor, it will come with an added treat!

“Best ice cream ever”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Based in Via del Governo Vecchio, this ice cream parlour was fantastic. Half the price of that in the Trevi of what appears similar ice cream. 3 euros for three scoops, a big cone and choc/cream to cover. Flavours you are spolit for choice, the cherry being my favourite. Bench outside to sit and savour, or stroll along to the nearby Naverone piazza. In a lovely back street but a gem. So good we went back for another the next day and we weren't disappointed. We would very much recommended for service, taste, variety, situation. For the ice cream lover its a must, for the not so sure you will become a convert. It was a great afternoon break to our sightseeing day.

“The BEST Gelato in Rome!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Honestly, after going to the Frigidarium there are no other gelato places worth going to in Rome. We walked out of our way numerous times to come here! It was excellent, and is one of the things I miss most about being in Italy!!
