It has been 18 days since I left Italy and I have to say I went into immediate withdrawal as I boarded the plane. I finally had the time to count the flavors I tasted. Twenty flavors in 14 days. I found great information on gelato before I left on www.italylogue.com/food-drink/italian-gelato -flavors-decoded.html. This site provided me with the customary way to order and Italian phrases to order but most of all the definition and italian for the flavors. Without it in my purse ...well I just would have been another tourist standing with their tongue hanging out looking into the wonderful glass cases of yummy, yummy gelato. Here in lies my question. I hunted down 2 gelaterias suggested by guide book and they were the worst in my opinion. San Crispino by the Trevi fountain was not my favorite at all. Sure they had some oddball flavors like whiskey which I tried. Yuk! ( but my husband like it) but if you go on this site you see others felt the same as it has no charm ( like a sterile lab) and the wait staff has even less. And it is no bargain. Funny how this place gets mentioned over and over again. Then in the Trastevere area I searched for Doppia Coppia which has changed names..rude service and worst ever gelato. ( Found this in the "little black guide book of rome") great guide book otherwise .. small ,compact and great maps! Well here are the flavors of yummy in my tummy ( I am salivating ,hurry please send gelato to hungry american) Chocolates ( white ,baco ,gianduja, choc. mousse, baily's irish cream, biscotti croes, stracciatella ( will trade an organ for this!) Nuts pistacchio, nocciola ( hazelnut), walnut , nutella . Fruit ...coco ( coconut), amarena, lampone ( raspberry), limon ( lemon), pera (pear), pesa ( peach) , kiwi, mango, and banana. If you read up on the flavors before you go you will have a head start. I found many of my favorites shops on the back streets and most were not in guide books. Maybe some locals can reccommend their favorite shop in some of Rome's neighborhoods. I just miss it so much. I dream of it ,,,all creamy goodness and so many flavors left unsavored. A reason to return and you know I threw a coin in the fountain not to find love but more gelato. Miss miss my gelato fix!!
