“Great friendly service, the best ice cream in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Called here by chance on a walk around Rome. Very friendly service and the ice cream was delicious. So delicious we returned a couple of days later to try different flavours. No wonder it is so highly rated. The ice cream is made on site and a great choice of flavours also not expensive like other Gelateria near to the Trevi fountain.

“Good gelateria near the Fontana di Trevi, large selection and original flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

The extra dark chocolate was particularly good. Service was very friendly. There are some benches for sitting inside and outside the gelateria (good idea for messy children).

“Okay but nothing special ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

After reading several good reviews on TA, we decided to end the evening with one of their "famous" ice creams. Maybe our expectations were set too high, but although the ice cream was okay, It was certainly not one of the best ever eaten.

“Looked appealing, tasted even better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

After roaming around the neighborhood and looking at a huge number of gelato places, this one looked the most appealing. We were correct in trying it. After trying other places, this was the one we kept coming back to. The staff is friendly and the owner seems to enjoy what he does very much.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Followed tripadvisor to here and was underwhelmed. We ordered lemon, watermelon and passion fruit but maybe fruit-based sorbets aren't their thing. The taste just didn't have that wow factor. We were also only allowed to taste test one flavour. We tried three different gelaterias today and this would rank bottom of the three.
