Lovely chocolate shop next to the basketball court. Silky rich hot chocolate with perfect balance of flavor, cream & sweetness. Tried 2 varieties of dark chocolate truffles. Both were great. A little disappointed with the dark chocolate gelato. Dark in color but light in flavor with a hints of burnt taste.

Some of us only go to Italy to eat ice cream....others go because the people watching is so magnificent....a few go for the culture...if your interest is the ice cream read on please.

A few years ago allegedly for spiritual reasons, I made a walking pilgrimage from the UK to Rome. The actual motivator to make this journey was to actually search for the best Ice cream to be found while also being able to exercise off any excess fat I acquired.

So based on two months of walking and tasting ice cream from Aosta to Pontremoli to Parma to Viterbo etc I would now like to confirm that Cioccolateria Gelateria Augusta Perusia offers the best icecream in Italy ( North of and including Rome )

Just do not bother going anywhere else....this stuff is to die for....well off the beaten path I came across it by chance.....and will be back before too long

The gelato was so cold, so thick, so creamy..... just right. I chose fruit flavors - raspberry and cantaloupe - so perfect in color too! My husband had a scoop of both rich deep chocolate and a coffee flavor - he was raving. A small place, charming, just off, well behind, the beaten path. Try their homemade chocolates too!
Nothing like the perfect snack on a hot summer day!!!

Had the most beautiful gelato here and could have had another three straightway. The woman behind the counter was helpful and gave great recommendations. I ended up going for spicy chocolate, nocciola and pistachio. Yum!

I had the chance to visit the shop located in via Pinturicchio (near the University for Foreigners) so my note concerns only that shop, not the other in via Bonazzi, that I had not the chance to visit. The shop specialises in chocolates and ice cream, and it is really worth a visit ! Several different types of chocolate pralines and bars are available (some types of bars are actually the size of a tablet computer) with delicious filling: tangerine, pistachio, hazelnuts - you name it. The lady running the shop also explained the production process starting from cocoa trees to the finished product, which shows her passion for her products ! Needless to say, the chocolates we bought disappeared in the blink of an eye once they reached home.
