    Cost-benefit-Ratio is amazing! Compared to the competition e.g. Giolitti. Only weakness: the location
  • Sepehr Y.
    Good ice cream. It is cheap and you can get free cream on top. A huge variance of flavours. However cone is the worst one.
  • Thomas S.
    Awesome ice cream. Not so extraordinary flavors but the ones they have - Classico. Very crowded place and no real queue - more real Italian style queuing 😜. Order with free pana on top (cream)

    The best gelatos in Rome!!! ❤️🇮🇹 Huge variance of flavours and you want to try them all🙌
  • Josh T.
    3 flavors for 1,60€ - not one of the best gelati I had in Rome, but still worth the refreshing break + the place has its own special stuck in time vibes
  • Matthew A.
    Disappointing. Didn't live up to the hype. First Italian gelato, hope it's not all this bland.

    Suboptimal. If you like La Romana, don't go here. Gelato looks, tastes watery, artificial. The staff were prickly. The building was lovely, what could have been a nice experience was disappointing.

    The oldest, but not the best gelateria in Rome. Not worth a visit on it's own, but if passing-by a 10 min detour may give you a sense of how it was back in a days. Unique in it's spacious hall.

    As one of the most famous ice cream parlours in Rome, it deserves the fame. Mint and caffe are dope. Until february, on wednesdays there's %50 discount for ice cream, on fridays desserts are 7 euros.

    It's cheap icecream, you get what you pay. Workers are sloppy, they use the same spoon for different tastes so they mix everything up. It's dirty as well, there is whipped cream spread all over

    En eskisi en iyisi dedi yerel halktan bir bayan. Fakat daha iyisi varmış 😊. Burada 3 top 2 euro. Bence hepsi güzel. Nutella dondurması ağır geldi. Coco yu tavsiye ederim. Parçacıklı hindistancevizi

    Con due euro coni o coppette giganti in uno spazio ampissimo che sembra quasi irreale. Ampia scelta di gusti, anche se i cremosi sono poco consistenti.

    Non giudico il gelato perché non sono riuscito a prenderlo. Disorganizzazione assoluta. Due persone a servire su un bancone di dieci metri, senza fila né numeri. Dopo un quarto d'ora sono andato via.
