Excellent gelato which you can have dipped in either white or dark chocolate. Expect a line. They have excellent chocolate fondant, nocci, tiramisu, Nutella. Most of the flavors are gluten free and they have gluten free cones.

This is your place to go then. Enjoy the best gelato you can have in Rome. We have been advised by someone to go there if we want to taste the best gelato in town and it didn't disappoint us.. what a tasty cone :)

we would literally eat here 2 times a day while staying in rome. and don't think we didn't try others that were highly ranked and this one is by far the best. large portions for a fair price, don't get discouraged by the line, it will move fast. but the line should say something about the quality.

I visited this ice-cream shop with my fiancé. There was a huge queue and it was pretty late so this told us that it was going to be good and it was! It was my first experience of pistachio gelato and it was so tasty – so nice and creamy! There was a choice of having your gelato dipped in... More

Huge helpings, wide variety of flavours, all potentially chocolate coated if you prefer. There's always a line, but it doesn't take long to get what you want!

This was the best ice cream we ate in Rome!! So amazing, so worth it and so good for a good price. We have been to all high rated ice cream shops in Rome, but this one was so divine!! Go and enjoy the ice cream!!

We have sampled many different flavours of ice Cream across many different gelateria in Rome and this one far outstrips them. The queue can be long but worth the wait - and very reasonable at the price. All flavours tried by the family were a hit but I love the raspberry the best!

OK, they do have really good gelato, but, honestly one of their servers, who I shall spare the name and description is THE WORST! I have visited here on two separate trips and both times I got this girl with MAJOR attitude. The first time I ignored it and just thought that she was having a bad day. But this... More

No, it's not an exaggeration. You'll be LUCKY to wait less than 40 minutes. And I'd wait even longer - the gelato is that good. That's enormous praise considering there's a gelato stand nearly every 10 feet in Rome. You have the option to have it dipped in dark chocolate or white chocolate. Do it!

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
