We were getting lost in Rome on a lovely summer day eating street food from this place and that place and at one point I said to my friends "a granita would be fantastic right now". At that very moment a stranger walked past with a granita in his hand and I asked him where he got it from... Next... More

Take the time to stop and have a drink. I tried the lemon with coconut - yes a bit weird but it was a trial. It is quite a refreshment in a hot day. Not expensive either

My husband was looking for a granita, and we just happened to find this place. He ordered one in lemon without sugar (she was a little surprised by that). The flavor was spectacular and so refreshing!

Stumbled upon this fruit stall when strolling through Rome. The drink we got was delicious and refreshing. The lady that owns the stall was a lovely lovely lady. Full of smiles and gave us a postcard when we had finished and talked about the history of the stall, that her grandad had started it

Delicious ice drink with fresh fruit on top. We have tried the watermelon and blueberry flavour and both flavours were delicious!

this is along the river, near trastevere. You can have any and all flavors you want. They put fresh coconut on top if you would like. We all had mixed flavors and all of us were happy. The woman who made the ice was very cheerful and nice. Each one is made by hand, so the line goes a bit... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
