If you like ice cream or sorbet any of the stores that sell them are good. This one had so many different flavours we had to visit more than once. The ice cream is so creamy.

Oh my gosh, the gelato was wonderful. I had a cone, and they offered to put chocolate in it (for an additional cost of course) but it was awesome! I would go back in a heartbeat!

This was our first experience of Gelato in Italy and it was great! The strawberry was the best strawberry ice-cream I had during my trip to Italy. It was unfortunate we did not return for seconds during our stay in Rome. The price was in line with most Gelato locations and the staff here was friendly.

This was, hands-down, the best chocolate and pistachio we have ever had. The chocolate was made from Bonajuto (great Modeno chocolate maker) and the pistachio tasted like it was freshly roasted and just pure pistachio ground straight into gelato. Awful gelato...I think not.

I stumbled upon this little shop by accident. I saw many happy people walking around with ice cream in the same cups. And since there are a lot of ice cream parlors around, that meant something. The ice cream was home made and tasty. I've become a fan of the "fondante"-flavored one, it goes well with so many flavors!

Icy, lack of genuine flavor and overly sweet. Just an awful experience, sometimes I wonder if most trip advisor contributors are wowed by the city rather than the food because this place sucked! The service was polite.

I was sampling dairy-free (and gluten-free) options: amazing soy vanilla they had! They were especially helpful with making sure I didn't get gluten-contamination from cones in my ice cream.

We visited 6 different ice cream shops in Rome, most recommended by other Trip Advisor users. This was the only one that was not up to our expectations. Most flavors were not so tasty and Nutella ice cream was definitely not Nutella and had even some ice crystals inside... not bad, but nor worthy of going either.

The lady serving us was very nice we tasted and could not choose everything was perfect, the chocolate and pistachio are so nice they must be sinful

Neighbourhood Profile
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 drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
