In Italy the tastebuds always get a fantastic workout with gelato, so given the rating on Tripadvisor, had to try Gelateria Valentino. It was very, very good and is up there with lots of other very good gelaterie in Rome. The prime location in the vicinity of the Trevi Fountain will always draw people in wandering around. Definitely try the... More

My wife and I went looking for this place after dinner. After all with an overall #4 ranking for restaurants in Rome on Tripadvisor we had to hunt this little hole-in-the wall place down. We got there right as he was closing but the owner let us come in and have some gelato. The gelato was very good but his... More

Very friendly and cheerful Italian couple running the place. The quality and choice of gelato is very good... definitely one of the best in Rome. They were also making customers feel at home by conversing in different global languages. Definitely recommended to everyone... a must visit place.

This gelato here is completely generic tasting. Every other gelateria I went to is better than this place (namely Venchi, Grom, Fatamorgana). In addition, the owner/manager was very rude. He doesn't let you taste more than one flavor and when my wife and I order one scoop he mumbled something rude under his breath that made the other people in... More

We loved friendly Valentino and his delicious gelato! It's excellent location near the Trevi Fountain made it convenient, but the wonderful service is what brought us in twice. The gelato was creamy and we especially loved the mint and the Snickers. It was so fun to receive tasting recommendations! This place is a real gem!

After a wonderful meal at That's Amore a few steps away, my niece wanted Gelato. I didn't. This lovely man called me into the shop..."Hey miss you come here, I want to talk to you" hands me a stick with lovely lemon sorbet to help aid my full stomach. SOLD. The most wonderful thing I have ever ever tasted. A... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
