Had two small cones of Gelato and tried their chocolate fondant, their lemonade flavoured sorbet, mint and passion fruit (we went back two days in a row). Do come by and try! Not expensive but decent quality.

I stumbled across here with my boyfriend on our way to the Trevi fountain. That's when I discovered the most amazing hazelnut icecream. I have given up chocolate for Lent and so to eat this was amazing! My boyfriend tried a variety of flavours and loved them all. We went back three times in total and was recognised on our... More

The best gelato in Rome! My mother and I went there 2 days in a row. The owner speaks ALL languages (he spoke to us both in Polish and Greek!!) and serves you delicious home-made ice-cream with a smile. Its location, next to Trevi fountain is also a huge plus!

Absolutely superb! Impressive that they could surprise and impress me with just selling ice. For sure a place I would visit every time I'd visit Rome. Service was great, funny, attentive and the quality of the ice was superb!

Stumbled in here by accident but it was so amazing! The service is top notch and the gelato is to die for. Definitely a must have. About a 5 minute walk from Trevi Fountain. Make sure not to miss this shop when you visit Rome!

The service provided by Valentino and Stella was wonderful but the homemade gelato was even better! Located on Via del Lavatore just a few steps from the Trevi Fountain, Valentino's shop is easily the best in all of Rome. Give them a try and you will impressed.

I always judge gelato by my personal favourite flavour. Opted for small cup @ €2.50 of pistacchio. Creamy, nutty, perfection. Good service and great gelato.

Lovely friendly, helpful with good mixes of GELATO. Considering how close to Trevi Fountain,the prices are good and the GELATO is amazing. We made a trip or three specially to this place, don't try anyone else's! Few seats inside too but not many elsewhere close by.

The guy behind the counter was great! He gave us free tastes and when we told him we had just eaten gelato someplace else he didn't push us to buy his. We did though. He encouraged us to try multiple flavors. Honestly, his service is what sold me.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
