It's the most delicious ice cream we had in Rome. We went there by recommendation and we were expecting the long queue we found but it was definitely worth it.

We had the best gelato at Frigidarium! The friendly staff accommodated our daughter's intolerance to nuts by helping us select the gelato and by using clean utensils to scoop the ice cream. A great dessert, three days in a row!

We stayed on the same Street so I know own there is a queue throughout the day. But it is worth it for the great Gilato and good value.

We happened upon this place after dinner and the line was very long so we thought we MUST try it! There were clergy and plenty of locals in line too so that told me it must be good. The caramello was so rich and creamy...More

Great Gelateria near Piazza Navona. The fruit flavours are really natural and the chocolate flavours are really creamy. It's only €1 for a scoop and can get fresh cream or melted chocolate for free.

While I wouldn't pretend to remember gelato between different cities...I can say that I will remember this place. We've had a few stops for gelato in Rome and this was the best. The selection was excellent and they will dip it in white or dark...More

Its hard to chose a favorite so just go back and try them all. The local Priests assured us "This was the place" and they do not lie.

This gelateria was recommended to us, and it was delicious! The long line for service was the first indication. Great choices, and having it dipped in chocolate, wow!

The gelato here is delicious and tastes even better in the Rome heat. It is a small place and the queue of about 15 people in front of me reached on to the street. Great product and great value. Only criticism is there was not...More

Stopped here just before we returned to the UK. Had to eat the ice cream quick before it melted. Very nice. There was a queue here and even men in suits came here in their lunch break.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

Do you serve English trifle in a cone? As far as I know, it's known as zuppa inglese. If so will it be there at the end of October? If not, where can it be found? Thanks in advance
