Compared to other gelato we've had, this is the best but what really made them stand out today was the service. We bought the large cup and accidentally turned it over on the table. Being a germaphobe, I couldn't eat it and just ordered another...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
