Stayed near the Termini station and took a 15 mins walk to this gem. Was impressed with the owner, Walter, whom took time to explain the different flavours and even recommended us some places to visit. The Gelato here is of superior quality and you can really taste the ingredients unlike the ones you find elsewhere, that is just loaded with sugar and flavouring. I highly recommend the Cafe, Perum (pear and rum) Pistacio and Strawberry flavour. Gelato Heaven !

So many flavours to choose from - many we had not seen before. It was alittle out of the way for us, but well worth finding on a hot day in Rome. Very friendly and helpful owner!

Definitely a must-go in Rome ! I can' t emphasise this enough - excellent customer service- spent at least an hour chatting with one of the co-owners who surprisingly works there himself, unbelievably friendly and passionate about his craft guy. The interior has that real, classic italian touch, makes you feel like home (even if you're not italian). However, ice cream is the star here. Everything's made from fresh, natural ingredients (if you're lucky and nice enough you might even get shown around and see how they're made), big selection of flavours and they're always trying to come up with something new - the newest concoction - Perum ( if i got the name right, that is..)- Pear mixed with rum. An absolute winner !
Highly recommend it !
