“Great treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Really great ice cream. Worth a visit. And lots of nice flavours as well. Just 3 euros for 4 scoupes.

“Best Gelato in Rome and a great price too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

There were two large police vans with lights flashing parked outside the store when we arrived. I thought - yikes - what's happening? Turns out this is the place the locals go for gelato. It was packed. It was the cheapest gelato - and the largest servings - we've seen in Rome. Tons of flavors, and the (optionally) top every cone/cup off with a scoop of freshly made whipped cream. The gelato is made on-site - you can see the production in the back. It's more than a place to get great gelato - it's an experience!

“Decent price nice gelato authentic and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Open late friendly staff and nice gelato
This was near to our hotel and was a good choice for a desert.
The place was very spacious and was good value and good amount of variety of flavours
The area was perfectly safe late at night.
Lots of places to eat indoors too and sit down if you wanted to.
Only criticism was the tables were sticky and dirty needed cleaning and the bins were overflowing in there.
I would return and would recommend

“Best prices for the amount!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

The taste was excellent and the choice of flavours was even better, but the best part was the price. For the large it was half the price of gelato in other areas of the city. No wonder the reviews are so good.

“Dessert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

No 1 in my book. Cashier could not change expression if you paid him. Countermen are a hoot, even know Indiana for basketball. Or, yes, and great ice cream!
