    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.

    Yummy ice cream - huge selection - great prices !
  • Andrei A.
    Very good icecream and also good prices. I would sugest to try all the products without the whipped cream, because this wat you will enjoy the flavours much better.

    Awesome ice-creams! I tried a lot of gelato in Rome, but I think this is the best! Lot of tables, chairs, people, and about 50 kind of tastest. They serve the ice-cream with home-made ehipped cream!

    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.

    Warning: If you want to eat these great ice creams in January, don't eat a slice of cassata after the ice cream. Or you risk a sore throat, experience speaks.

    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.

    Amazing value and the cones are huge! You get four scoops in a cone - choose wisely! Lemon Sorbet is an excellent choice as is the vanilla.

    We skipped dessert at a nearby restaurant and came here for instead, it was a great choice! Pistachio was the best I've ever tasted.

    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
