I tried a lot of places in Rome, this brand has amazing flavors. Pistachio is a must, but their signature ice cream with honey is divine. I also loved the fig flavours. You can taste everything is made with fresh fruits and real nuts. Yum

Do not recommend! Nothing special at all..The reviews say otherwise, hence why I made my way over. Store bought ice cream is better. Giolitti is a MUST visit and not far!

I will always remember this place for gelato because of their unique flavors and their speciality: honey-flavored gelato. You can certainly tell the quality of this gelato is top-notch, creamy, not too heavy, and the perfect treat during your Rome tour. The panna is incredible as well. I always chose the blue mountain flavor to pair with the honey. It... More

I am here almost every day! Marvelous dairy and non dairy flavours. The fruit flavours vary according to the season; white or red fig, cranberry, plum, melon, Williams pears,raspberry, tangerine, you name it! Or chocolate rum, zabaione, merangue and chocolate and it goes on... Don't miss it!

Ice cream is covered to keep it cool and fresh, which is usually a good sign. you can ask to taste and see pictures of all flavours

I normally go to my local San Crispino near the Trevi, but found myself near this one last night. Same quality gelato, and very friendly service. Learned that honey + dark chocolate = delicious!

had the fig and it was delicious, but some of the other mom and pop gelato spots blew us away. Service was great. Not the cheapest, but price was reasonable as well.

This place has flavors not found elsewhere and the meringue with chocolate was unique and delicious. I still like the gelato,shop on Nazionale with the VW bus in the store. The dark chocolate there is a good competitor to Crispini but Crispini was great for a change!

It was okey but it had very few flavors to choose from, a little disappointing. Plus a bit expensive compared with other places. Won't go back here a second time.

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
