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.

Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

Whenever I am in Budapest I make sure to go here daily for a nice cream. Excellent value. There is not as big a selection in winter for obvious reasons. However the chocolate shot is like drinking molten chocolate. Yum

Staff are friendly and happy to guide you in your flavour selections.

“Chili Chocolate, nice!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful ice-cream flower on hand & taste super, we've tried the chili chocolate that just amazed, cannot forget how good it is. Wanted to try it the 2nd day but unfortunately it is sold out. So had pumpkin, wow, just like having pumpkin soup. Not bad at all!

Friendly staffs & nice location for sure. Must try in Budapest.

Looks amazing and tastes even better, very friendly staff. Easy to find, look for the ice-cream rose sign when standing in the square.

“Wouldnt do it any other way”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

I rarely dislike any ice cream, this is best ice cream I eaten for very long time ! Despite my town renowned for ice cream parlours, I live in a seaside town none of them has anything on Gelarto, taste good as it looks well presented :) you need to open a shop in my town ! Summer when im here again I visit atleast twice, perfect weather for ice cream ;)

“Better Than Average”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is the only gelato I've had in Budapest, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's among the best. The carmel and pumpkin are particularly tasty, but gelato snobs might fault the texture. It isn't quite as incredible as the gelato in Florence or Rome, but it'll satisfy your inner sweet tooth for a very reasonable price.
