My girlfriend and I picked this place randomly, after dinner. Our curiosity was rewarded. The ice cream is great and the place offers a large set of flavors, some of which are exclusive. For example, I had peanut and oreo and they were just delicious

Good tasting gluten free cones. Also good gluten free gelato. Not the best but certainly tasty. the colosseum being in view at the end of the street makes it even more novel.

This little gem was not far from our hotel and we were able to find a dairy free ice cream for our 2 year old boy who cannot tolerate dairy! The ice cream is so delicious, a MUST TRY!

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
