During my recent trip to Italy I stayed, once again, in Rome for a few days at a friend's house.
My friend told me I absolutely had to taste some icecream and she took me to "Benfatto", a new place in her neighborhood.
I was hit by the variety of choice and by some special taste I never tried before: Italian meringue, pears in wine, "fiordilatte" and jasmine...
Italian icecream is always great and tasty, but this one goes beyond any expectation.
Nevertheless the accuracy of exposition and the dedication of the workers are noteworthy, friendly and professional!
I usually go to Rome twice a year and I think that "Benfatto" is my favourite place where I am going to have icecream every time I can.

This is the best "gelato" you can get! I highly recommend a visit if you want to have a memorable experience. Friendly service, clean place, unbeatable ice cream......Don't try to reproduce it, they won't give up their secret recipe!

Our Anglo-Italian family of four are keen ice-cream lovers and have sampled some of the best ice creams in Rome, London and beyond. We loved the flavours - some quirky, some classic - a truly superb Nocciola, a classy Crema, a delightful Pear cooked with wine, and a zesty lemon with fennel. The ingredients, all sourced by a maverick chemist turned ice cream maker, and the creative force behind Benfatto, are definitely first class.

Ilaria - our eight year old says: "the Chocolate was as sweet as honey and as light as a feather. The Crema was as delightful as the sun and as cold as ice!!!!!!!!!!" "Willy Wonka would have loved it here!!!!!" says Carlotta our 12 year old ice-cream lover.

A definite gem and more than worth the visit. Yum!
