Gelateria Artigianale Il Capriccio di Carla in Monti is an absolute gem! It's hands down one of the best gelato I've ever tasted. Despite its small and cozy space with no seating, the flavours they offer are out of this world. If you're in Rome...and craving a Gelato, don't miss out on the experience here!More

Creamy, fresh, delicious! We’ve been back two nights in a row. Friendly staff as well. Sign out front says top ten gelato shops in all of Rome and I have no reason to doubt that! 10/10 would recommend.

We stumbled onto this small humble place because it was near our hotel. We went there every night after dinner. The staff were always very friendly and animated. The gelato was great. Cantaloupe, a cheesecake flavor, plus all the usuals. A great option if you...are staying in the Monti neighborhood.More

We came across this gelateria by accident while searching on google maps for the nearest one from our current location. Very tasty and interesting flavour combinations. I tried apple+kiwi+ginger. Hands down, this was one of the best gelatos we had during our week long stay...in Italy, along with Gelateria Dondoli in San Gimignano. Highly recommend this place if you are in the vicinity. Very friendly and welcoming service too.More

Really tasty gelato with lots of flavors to choose from, some being quite different. Strawberry gelato was some of the best we’ve had, and the clementine orange was delicious with bits of orange zest in it, but no bitterness. The green apple-kiwi-ginger was surprisingly delicious...with just a hint of ginger, and the salted caramel was nicely balanced in the degree of saltiness. The lemon was refreshing but not too tart.More

We went to this gelato place based on the excellent reviews here, and we were not disappointed. The gelato was excellent, and the server was super friendly and helpful. This will be our go to place for gelato in Rome. It is just up the...street from Santa Maria Maggiore and close to Termini Station. Highly recommend!More

Absolute awesome ice cream added with great service - what more do you need? This is something you would call a hidden gem, but it is worth to search for and have a taste yourself.
