We stopped by Antico on a walk. The gelato looked great and we needed a break. The gelato WAS very good. Great location. Walk around the Isola before leaving.

Okay first the pros, the location is really convenient, since so many people have to pass this little place. It also overlooks the Basilica of St. Bartholomew and the staff was pretty friendly. However, expect average food and drinks at relatively high prices. It's also...More

Very unfriendly and not cheap, but great location though. And no many other places around. That might be the reason why they still have customers.

An amazingly bad tempered und unfriendly service. We were the first guests on the terrace (which was full in between) and the last ones to be served (for only two cappucinos which were thrown on the table by the waiter) after half an hour waiting....More

A sweet little terrasse on a cosy little quiet island. A perfect lunch break from busy Rome the pasta was simple fresh and delicious. No frills no tourists ... I must admit to being greedy and having two servings ! Highly recommended !!

I quickly surprised my friends and family for a short weekend break to Rome which was excellent. While walking around one day in a very hot city centre I walked through the Tiber Island and went to get a coffee first in this place between...More

The Tiber Island finally back to the Romans with the opening of the Tiberino. The historic island bar, run by the family since 1936 Bungaro, in 2015 is renewed and becomes "Tiberino" by adding to the previous offer: bistrot and restaurant. An important step that introduces a real kitchen and new offers completely inexistent on the island. Open every day from morning to after dinner. The location makes it a unique place, ideal for business lunches, romantic dinners and drinks with friends in the heart of Rome. Tasted the best gelato on the island while in Rome taking a boat ride on the Tiber. Memorable flavors of hazelnut chocolate and cinnamon.
