DO NOT ENTER! I repeat- DO NOT ENTER! This is totally a tourist trap- no price listed anywhere and the Italian staff IGNORED what you ordered in English and intentionally gave you EXTRA ingredients (e.g. marcaron, larger cone, whipped cream) withOUT your permission. In my...More

Unfortunately we fell for the most overpriced and average gelato in Rome. Firstly, the prices are not displayed anywhere so once you have purchased your ice cream, had a a few licks and get to the cashier to pay, you're 7-8 euros poorer. This was...More

One of the most delicious Gelato in Rome, just in front of Piazza Spagna. Very helpful and kind staff especially Mr. Sammy Bueno. Highly recommended.

We are from Switzerland so we are used to expensive but even for us, the price of 9 euros charged for a single (albeit large) ice cream is extortionate.

The Piazza di Spagna is a lovely place with shops in the streets opposite and places to eat and drink. Or one could just enjoy the fantastic views from the Spanish steps.

If you want to pay 5 euro per (mediocre) ice cream scoop that's your choice -- but to support an outfit with mediocre and rude service is another. We ordered seven ice creams (a family event), yet they tried to charge us for eight. The...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
