“Gelato Mecca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

There are TWO Cafe Roma's in Monopoli. The one in the historic center is the original; there's a larger one on the outskirts. It's all about the gelato here. 20+ homemade flavors. I highly recommend the Nutella. Also a good pit stop for an espresso after dinner or after walking around town. If you want artisan gelato, try the next town up the coast (Polignano del Mare), which has 3 or 4 truly outstanding spots.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Arrived in Monopoli on a very quiet sunny afternoon after having enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Osteria Bell'Italia in Cisternino. Took a very pleasant walk along the sea promenade and old town and then we asked a local man if there was a good ice cream parlour. Without hesitation the man said: "Caffe' Roma, where they make the best ice cream in the world". We managed to find this place and it was amazing. Not just the great selection of ice cream flavours, sizes and shapes, but a mouthwatering display of fabulous patisserie. Ice cream was very, very good although we cannot say whether it is the best in the world until we complete our trip around the world :-)

“If you like real ice-cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

If you fancy some real ice-cream on a cone - this is the place to go! About 20 different choices and each one looking very tempting. Caffe Roma is a local coffee shop where the locals just seem to pop in for their "quick" coffee or an ice-cream.
