The ice-cream is ok. Honestly, you can have better ones nearby and in Rome in general. The place is very small but to get an ice-cream is ok. The only big flaw is the cones. They are made by very bad quality biscuit. Ok, you...More

You can't find better gelato than this! The owner makes it all there, he gave us any number of free samples which only made it harder to decide what to get! He used to live in Vancouver Canada and speaks excellent English.

We walked here on a very hot summer day and boy was it worth it. Excellent and the owner was very nice, and he spoke excellent English. (Although I am confident we could have figured it out if left to our own devices.)

We were taken to this particular gelato shop by the driver we hired for the day. The owner had lived in Canada and spoke good English so he could explain how he made his different gelato flavors.

We were staying nearby and saw this was so well-rated. The guy was really friendly and gives away spoons and spoons of ice cream for you to try first. One day I must have walked out with 7 or 8 spoons! White chocolate was lush,...More

When we asked where we could have a good gelato, we were directed in this small gelateria, not too far from the BB where we were staying... it was a good choice, never had I tasted fruit so well while savouring an ice cream!
