What a rip off. Avoid at all cost. Their gelato tastes like crap. Never again will I visit this shop. There are other restaurants you could go to so please avoid this. Totally not worth your money. I had a gelato from other shops that...More

We walked in early evening for a quick ice cream. The guy serving us was too busy talking to his mate on the other counter. I asked for one nut cone (medium) and one normal medium with two choices of ice creams. The guy serving...More

!!!Warning!!! Don't use this ice-cream bar! It's a tourist trap. 4 scoops of ice cream for over 10 euros. 22 euros for 8. Very unfriendly service, too. Please don't buy anything there. This needs to be punished. !!!Warning!!!

Non sense price and bad service. The staff requested us to pay him the tips with impolite manner. Also, there is no price list for gelato until you pay. For me, I paid eur 9 for a cup of gelato. It is overpriced very very...More

Watch out 10 euros for a gelato that was 2 to 3 euros elsewhere on the back streets. But it was tasty. Price list is also hidden. This is one of the reasons when hungry to check prices first and go to the side streets...More

No prices on display - should have checked! 2 scoop ice cream was 7 euros - avoid - the average cost for equal quality elsewhere was 2.5 - 3.5 euros. They even had the check to ring the tips bell when we paid!

They charged us 25 Euro for 2 x 1 ball of ice cream and 1 Canoli (charged for 2). Better go somwhere else, similar ice cream, at least You won't be ripped off

Very handy location but they make the most of it! 38 euros for 5 ice creams (double scoop)...it is hard to knock the quality but then good ice cream is hardly a novelty in Rome! With hindsight, I would walk 100 or 200m away from...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
