Had a few gelati while in Rome but this was definitely the best. You pay at the cash desk beside the entrance and then present your ticket at the ice cream counter where you choose (or try to, there are so many delicious flavours!). Whipped cream on top is usually always offered (& included in the price) in Rome. Yum.

A must visit whilst in Rome. The worst part was trying to pick which flavours to try as there were so many options.

Its classic décor adds the charm to this old roman café - we stopped for a coffee and a sfoglia alla ricotta which is one of their specialities. It was very good for a quick stop whilst roaming the area of the Pantheon and Piazza Navona.!

Delicious gelato at a very decent price and good location. The only reason I haven't given this a five, which not everyone will agree with, is for me, there were too many chocolatey flavours that seemed very similar.

We were looking for a place where we could enjoy the gelatino and also sit in. Giolitti was well recommended on TripAdvisor so we decided to check it out. The inside was almost empty and devoid of atmosphere. However, the gelatino was excellent and we happily continued to stroll towards the Pantheon. In a busier season I can imagine their... More

Great gelato that's packed with rich flavor and creamy smooth. Caution, choose the Nutella flavor only if you a REAL fan of it. It's almost like a thick version of it rather than "Nutella-flavored."

The historic gellateria in Rome gives justice to her reputation. A wide variety of ice cream, we visited several times during our stay so we can taste different ice creams.

As above, went one day and had to go back the second!! Make sure you get a ticket from the front of the shop before you queue up for the ice cream or else they send you back!!

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
