We went to this place on recommendation. It seems popular with the locals. We had better gelato with less crowd and confusion on the streets of Rome. You pay at a separate station and there is no line and seemed to be no method for...More

The one thing i found remarkable about this gelateria is the history of it. It is over 130 years old, counting Hitler and Mussolini as clients it has served. It is a huge place, and gets quite busy. After buying your ticket, service is rather...More

This is a must-visit; one of the best Gelato in Rome. I typically don't re-visit a place; but it's so good that I went twice! Try their vanilla with berries; it's amazing!
