Having lived in Rome all my life - I can confidently say you will find it hard to come across a better gelato or a more genuine Roman experience. The staff take pride in all that they do and will welcome you with open arms! The pistacchio is a classic, the fig and caramelised nut is sublime... If you are... More

It's been more than two years since I was here last time, and I'm happy to be here again! The location has changed ... now it'll take a bit to get here from the downtown... but it definitely worth it!!! The taste is changed... now it's more delicious and healthy, because they started to make a BIO ice cream ...... More

Tasty ice cream, you can even try before choosing which one do you want. But in many gelaterias in Rome, portions arę huge - I took the biggest one and it was really small.

The taste of ice cream was… really average. This gelateria isn’t something special in Rome, where you can find incredible places with delicious ice cream.

my favorite! everyday, for three consecutive days, after doing all the touristy activities around Rome, we find ourselves wanting to spend time at this place! the gelato, gourmet chocolates, pastry, desserts, crepes, waffles, coffee, .. yummm!!! The best part of this place is the host, Francesco, who always treated his customers as guests --- greeting them with a welcoming smile... More

We stumbled on this spot while wandering along the Tiber one afternoon. The owner was very gracious and we were able to taste several divine flavours before choosing our favorite. We were able to sit down for a few minutes to recharge and didn't feel rushed. We would definitely go back here to try the many other delicious treats!
