I walked in but couldn't see the flavors because there was a couple standing in front of me. When the owner asked what I wanted, I told him I didn't know yet. He then said loud enough so I could hear him, "I don't know yet," in a snotty, mocking tone. I thought he was kidding like it was his shtick or something so I chuckled. Then I asked if he offered samples (I'd overheard someone ask for one and get it in another gelato place the night before so I thought it was the norm) but that infuriated him. He raised his voice and said, "No! There are no samples!" Of course, then I realized he hadn't been kidding and he was just a big jerk. Why this guy is in this type of industry in such a high traffic area is beyond me. Don't know if the gelato's any good because I hightailed it out of there. Avoid at all costs!!

Avoid at all costs. It is a complete rip off preying on unsuspecting tourists visiting the Trevi Fountain. Obviously their skills of ripping people off have been honed over many a year.
If I could give if no stars I would. Absolute disgrace!

We have visited Rome a few times in the last few years. Each time we have wandered past the Trevi Fountain. This restaurant is located in an amazing location, especially on a warm sunny day. During our first visit, I was taken aback by the rudeness of one of the staff. I had ordered ice cream and decided to sit on a chair while I was waiting for my husband who stopped quickly in the rest room. All the seats were empty and no one was waiting to be seated. The man told me that I had to wait outside. I was not permitted to remain inside since I had not ordered a sit down meal.

Today, we were walking in the area. I remembered both the tasty gelato as well as the rudeness. Nevertheless, we opted to stop because we remember the great tasting gelato that comes in many flavors. Once again, I was met by abrupt behavior. This time, I was told to hurry with my selection. I wasn't the only one. Anyone who could not respond quickly was pestered to place an order.Considering the price point, patrons should be treated with more respect.

If I ever return to this area of Rome I will make a point to take my business to a place where I am treated better.
