Description: The icecream shop 'da Quinto', as we know it today, was born after World War II, about in 1949, but there was already a shop in 1915 that sold olives and fusaglie(lupins) in winter and pastries and ice cream in summer. The passion creating a genuine product remained unchanged in the years. Streets around piazza Navona was part of a popular and common area, with small workshops and taverns. Quinto is a shop of homemade products. The rice ice cream, prepared in a cauldron, like grandmas made for the children, the black chocolate with its ancient recipe ever changed, the typical tasty hazelnut of caprarola(VT) are just a few examples of the 'simplicity' of the products. By choice, it could not be otherwise, the shop prepares an authentic ice-cream, of a natural compactness, without hydrogenated fats, kept in an old typical fridge, a genuine and copious amount of ice cream served to the public by the same people who prepare it. Since 1984, the year in which were installed the blenders, Quinto became famous also for smoothies, fruit salads and for its yoghurt, prepared with fresh season fruit.

This is the place where you want to go to have ice cream in Rome. First is located very close to Piazza Navona ( 2 minutes walking) and the quality of the ice cream is pretty high, while the price is still pretty normal. 2euro per the small icecream ( which is pretty big actually) and can have up 3 different flavors. They also have options with fresh fruits and ice cream. Highly recommended.

Ok, so there are thousands of Gelaterias in Rome. How do you pick? Ask locals. I had a local recommend this place, just off Piazza Navona, and it was one of my favorite gelaterias during our trip! (We were in Italy for two weeks, and ate gelato about twice a day). There was fresh fruit hanging everywhere, the flavors were robust and real. The lady who waited on me was so nice and even made sure that she layered my favorite flavor (raspberry) on the bottom, so I could enjoy it last. This is definitely worth a stop for fresh, yummy gelato!

We stayed in Rome for five days and had ice cream everyday from places rated highly on tripadvisor. However, this was by far the best I tasted, the service was also very friendly. Would highly recommend to visit if you are in the area

Friendly service very helpful good prices and amongst all it is a hidden gem.
