I am not much to taste ice cream, but I dared to buy in a homemade ice cream, it was very difficult to choose the flavors because they were very diverse, there was also vegetarian ice cream, I chose opera, vanilla and mint, a medium...rare mix, it was delicious….More

We visited this establishment on the 1st day of the Lockdown in Italy so it was very quiet and through our mutual masks and 1 meter distance we managed to secure a lovely Hazelnut Gelato. My only regret is not ordering a bigger portion! A...must visit when in Rome.More

I found this shop near my hotel and went every day of my trip! It was really difficult to choose from the many flavours. They have some unusual flavours and combinations, including cacio pepe, but Opera was my favourite! The lady working there is friendly...and helpful.More

The most delicious gelato we’ve had during our vacation in Rome. Various tastes, especially Parmesan with black pepper, opera, tiramisu, all were interesting, creamy and amazing 😉 Highly recommend this place ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You can get up to 3 flavors in a small cup. We got 2 small cups, which I plenty, for only €5. Very good!

No trip to Rome is complete without it. Try the Tiramisu and Pistachio flavors. Don’t be fooled by the hole in wall look. Beats others HANDS DOWN, and it’s reasonably priced! I will travel back to Rome just for this.

Carla uses only top ingredients, and milk from the Alpes, and also has vegan gelato. So yummy and good value, we went every day, because it was so much better than the commercial gelato you find in Rome. Interesting flavors and combinations, as well as...the classics. Carla also keeps her gelato cool, covered and fresh for optimal flavor. Clearly made with real love. She is lovely!More

Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up
