We visited Hedera late in the afternoon looking for something savoury to eat. The owner made us delicious pancakes with savoury fillings, so much so the customer after us also opted to have the same. We then had 2 superb desserts and coffee which were excellent. We were so impressed with the standards of service and attention to detail we visited again and had ice cream. The ice cream has to be the best in Rome; home made and well presented. It was also in covered containers so when it was served it was at the perfect temperature and not already melting. The place is lovely and very, very friendly. On our third visit we also purchased gift boxes of home made biscotti. The location is also close to St Peter's Square.

I've had a lot of gelato in Italy, and this is the best! I highly recommend the chocolate! It's pure chocolate!!! Or if you want something less sweet the vanilla-lemon is also soooo good! And to top it off, the loveliest old man is at the gelateria counter. Great vibe. The customers around me were also so happy chatting with the old man grabbing second round of ice cream, just like me. Love this place!

The most incredible gelato in Rome - I have spent the whole semester in Italy and this is bar none the best. Not only is the gelato creamy with artisanal flavors, the staff is charming. My family came to visit in Rome and we returned several times as my sister had taken a liking to it. During our stay, we became friends with the owner and employees. When it came time for us to leave, they sent us home with biscotti in our favorite flavors. (They catered the Pope's birthday cake, too!)

I was feeling like eating ice cream inmediately after lunch and my friends agreed to accompany me.
I chose this place because a free walking tour guide reccomended it.
It was really cold so we sat inside the place with one big cup of ice cream. Suddenly, someone, who seemed like the owner, told us that we four could't be seated down with one ice cream but the place was empty!!!!!!
He was extremely rude and unrespectful.
The employees were really sweet though, but the ice cream nothing out of the ordinary.

Buon Giorno, sono il proprietario. raramente rispondo alle recensioni, ma per voi faccio un'eccezione.
Siamo famosi per il livello di qualità del gelato ma soprattutto per la cortesia e l'orientamento al cliente.
Voi siete il gruppo di maleducati di ieri pomeriggio, 5 persone, 1 coppetta piccola e 4 cucchiaini. Avete letteralmente occupato, senza consumare nulla, l'unico appoggio in gelateria da 45 minuti ridendo, urlando e giocando con i cellulari sfruttando solo wifi gratuito.
La coppetta era finita da 40 minuti. Troviamo giusto che anche gli altri debbano godere del diritto di stare nei pochissimi posti a sedere.
Insomma, dopo tutto il casino che avete fatto, senza consumare per altro…era ora di andare...
la cosa singolare che abbiate pure trovato il tempo di farvi un account di tripadvisor solo al fine di una recensione...

good morning, im the owner.
i answer rarely the reviews, but for you make an exception.
we are famous for the ice cream quality level but especially for the courtesy and customer oriented focus & approach.
you are the “yesterday afternoon rude group….”
5 people, 1 small gelato cup and 4 spoons!! (5 people, one cup!).
4 out 5 without buy anything
45 minutes
laughing, shouting and playing with mobile phones using even the wifi connection free
it was time to go ..
singular thing that you also found the time to make you an tripadvisor account and do only one review ...
