Description: Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.

it is now the 20th of March Gelarto is still closed. Looks like I won't be able to visit this trip although I have been looking forward to revisit this great place with my wife for the past two years. :(

Like the reviewers below, we too tried to visit only to find the cafe still undergoing refurbishment despite signs advising that it would re-open on 7th March. We were very disppointed, we called on both the 11th and 14th March and the cafe was closed.

Dear murrayleigh,

We would like to apologize for being closed. The renovation takes much more time (opening end of march) than we planned. We understand your disappointment and hope you will have an other opportunity to visit us. We are sorry again.

Best regards,

GelaRto Team

As a genuine ice cream lover I can say this place is the one to go if you want to taste a bit of heaven and smile over the way they look. We stayed in Budapest for only three days and although our visiting schedule was quite organised and tight, having ice cream once a day was just taken for granted. Great and friendly people, lovely decor inside and just great-tasting dessert. I will never forget this place when thinking of Budapest. Highly recommended!

If the amazing shape this ice cream isn't enough for you to visit, the very home-made taste and creamy delicious flavours will!
I had the white chocolate and jasmine; pistachio; chocolate; lemon sorbet ice creams and also tried a cappuccino fudge cake - delicious!
The place is very small but cozy and full of detail!
Don't miss out!!
