Description: La Romana gelato shop was born in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini in 1947, receiving the name of the founder's daughter. A few years later Vito Zucchi, progenitor of the family, took over the enterprise. Thanks to his fervent creativity and the use of a few ingredients then available, he created a wide range of high-quality flavours which are still made in our stores today. For this reason, we offer traditional flavours made exclusively with selected products, following old recipes of the past.

Walking 20 minutes in seriously high temperatures to get to this gelateria was worth it! We know a good ice-cream when we taste one, and Gelateria La Romana's ice-creams and granitas get full points. Staff are also very kind and patient. Shop is supplied with ample seating inside and lovely decor. Will definitely recommend!

Delicious ice-creams, light and creamy. Decent prizes. One can get an extra cream on top of ice- creams! Enjoy ☺

The place is really nice and clean and they offer a pretty good choice in flavours, but the taste... I prefer something a lot more home made in italy. Good, but it could be way better. Not too much of a choice for vegans...

Hello Angela V,
we are happy that you liked our store. We take care of every detail in order to offer the best gelato experience to our customers. 

Our first gelateria opened in 1947, and since then we have been following recipes and methodologies of our artisan tradition, that our founder transmitted to us. We select the finest quality ingredients (such as organic milk, fresh fruits and fresh cream) and we produce gelato in small quantities every few hours in our in-store laboratory. This artisanal process ensures that our gelato will always be fresh and creamy.

Our fruit flavours (except Cocco and Banana) are suitable  for vegans. For those following a diet without lactose, we have created two more flavours: Crumbles fondente all’amarena and Crumbles alla mandorla. We hope you will have the opportunity to enjoy them.

We know that taste is personal, so we treasure your point of view and we thank you for sharing it with us. 
Come back soon to our store, we look forward to see you again!

This was the third ice cream shop we tried in Ferrara and had heard good things about it. So good in fact that we braved the most incredible thunderstorm to get there - got absolutely drenched doing so, but decided as we sampled their ice cream it was absolutely worth it. This place is so popular - it's friendly, with excellent service, some very traditional gelato flavours, and cakes that looked enticing enough for a return trip...
