“Unique and Genuine”
Reviewed 13 September 2012 via mobile

Came here as per tripadvisor's recommendation, wasn't disappointed! All the fruit flavors were very genuine and there are some bold flavors as well which I tried - white chocolate basil, white peach lavender, and rosemary honey lemon - very herby and refreshing.

“Always Great Gelato Here”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

I went to their newest location right off the Tiber River across from the neighborhood called Trastevere. I'd been to the first location near Piazza Navona several times, knowing full well that they create some of the best gelato in Rome.

My wife recognized the employee working the store from the other location. It was a good sign. Perhaps a co-owner? We asked about the move to the new location and the space they were in and it was good because it created more indoor space for people to sit and enjoy their gelato while the first location was always limited in this way.

On to the gelato. I tested a flavor I didn't remember (rosemary and lemon), skipped it because the rosemary left too much pine flavor for me, but went for milk chocolate and Sicilian almond. The almonds were ground into the smallest bits giving some nice texture, really superb flavor profile if you are an almond lover. The chocolate was smooth as ever, exquisite. They don't serve it too cold as to numb the taste buds on the tongue. At the right temperature, we got the most taste, never too sweet, really, just an excellent gelateria. Very glad its much closer to my home than the first location.

“Ok ice cream”
Reviewed 9 September 2012 via mobile

The ice cream was good but we had just as good in other "normal" places, not sure why this one is so highly rated.

“Peach and Lavender Ice cream”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Amazing ice cream set in a really cute street. Just perfect for a late afternoon refresher. The selection of ice cream was great and the man that served me helped choose a great combination. Would highly recommend this place.

“Outstanding & Charming”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

From wherever you are it is worth the trip to this charming Gelateria with some of Rome's best gelato. A cousin (& ice cream enthusiast) emailed us while we were in Italy to recommend this gelateria - & she was right! For the lactose intolerant, they have gelato with & without milk, as well as fruit gelato (sorbet?). Excellent Gelato, charming environment. Enjoy!
