This family owned shop is quite delightful! Valentino was incredibly friendly! The gelato was out of this world! I was in Italy for my honeymoon and I had gelato every night, but this one was truly the BEST!! They have an award-winning chocolate flavor that you MUST try. There is only one bad thing about this place; I'm in love... More

We take gelato seriously- no vacation to Europe doesn't involve two or three per day. Three of four family members gave this their enthusiastic best-of-Rome vote. That the proprietor is a most charismatic front man only adds to the fun. Must visit.

Friendly staff low key gelato shop. Perfect to pick up a cone or cup of one or more yummy flavors then walk to or from Trevi Fountain. Can ask for a taste sample before choosing a refreshing fruit or decadent chocolate gelato. Wonderful even during cool November.

The gelato was really good and they had plenty of flavors to choose from. The staff was also very nice and friendly. If you're going to the Trevi fountain, it's super quick to pop in here and enjoy some good gelato.

In Italy the tastebuds always get a fantastic workout with gelato, so given the rating on Tripadvisor, had to try Gelateria Valentino. It was very, very good and is up there with lots of other very good gelaterie in Rome. The prime location in the vicinity of the Trevi Fountain will always draw people in wandering around. Definitely try the... More

My wife and I went looking for this place after dinner. After all with an overall #4 ranking for restaurants in Rome on Tripadvisor we had to hunt this little hole-in-the wall place down. We got there right as he was closing but the owner let us come in and have some gelato. The gelato was very good but his... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
