Piazza Cisterna is lucky enough to be blessed with two out of this world gelato outlets. It's like Ali v Frazier every day, with the two best heavyweights going toe to toe. Superb gelato. You will not be disappointed!

On the terrace, in the corner, we had some shade. We ordered a very nice caffe freddo and some cantucci cookies. Nice drink and not to expensive. You can watch people passing by (busses and busses full are dropped here).

This gelato store has unofficially crowned itself the worlds best gelato. Note that the offical best is just a few steps away. If you're not one for titles and queues , then this is the stop for you. Plenty of choice, good service and TASTY!...More
