Excellent ice cream with a variety of flavors. It seems expensive but the bucket is full. I couldn’t manage to eat it all. You have to try Kit Kat

This is one of the best shops in Rome for ice cream, close to the Vatican. Even the smallest cup (€ 2,50, two flavours) contains a lot of ice cream. Really loved it.

Really amazing place. The customer service was impeccable. I don’t drink as I’m Muslim and was told exactly which flavours to stay away from due to the alcohol content. Amazing! Thankyou for your kind service

This is some of the best gelato I’ve ever had. It is decadent, creamy and delicious. During a few days in Rome, we’ve been back a few days in a row. I highly recommend the dark chocolate and the pistachio.

As far as I can remember they only take cash. It is always good to carry some cash when travelling in Italy as numerous shops do not take credit card.
