We loved this place! The chocolate dipped Gelato was simply an artery-hardening delight. It was recommended to us...and it was worth the walk!

talian gelato is the best and La Gelateria Frigidarium is the best that we had in Rome. Be sure to stop by for a tasty treat to enjoy as you walk the streets of Rome.
