We tried to have a quick lunch. But it was so good it became a long one. We are going to have breakfast here every morning this week I will write another review at the end of the week. But for now it is a great place with good food and nice staff

It was just an average gelato place, and I wouldn't recommend to come here because it really isn't on the way to any attractions anyway. Tried the banana flavour, which was alright, but the rest is really average at best.

Thats all you need to get, really. Just get mounds of pistachio gelato. Id give this place a 5, but its kind of a small serving compared to others, but dont sacrifice on the quality of these gelatos!

Per our Roman Food Tour this is the best and authentic Gelato. The flavors were unimaginable. All of them were to die for! A must try when in Rome. It was nice to learn what makes Gelato authentic since 80% of Gelato is not authentic. After having their Gelato we were picking trying any others!

I read about this gelateria online at Frommers.com, which raved about it, and the review was on the mark. In a city with good and bad gelato, this was easily the best. The amount of flavor in one small spoonful was unbelievable. I agree the cost was reasonable at 1 euro per scoop. The fruit flavors tasted like having a... More

This is one of the best gelaterias in all of Rome! Unlike many other gelaterias which sell fake gelato(made with powder) this is genuine and delicious! It is very inexpensive too! Only 1 euro per scoop (and 2 scoops is plenty). They will also put whipped cream and a mini cone on top for free! There are many non dairy... More

We ate at the location of this gelato place that is about a 10-15 minute walk from Circus Maximus - it is not the main location. We had very unusual flavors, which was really neat. The service was good. They offered me lots of tastes, which was very generous. I thought the gelato was good, but maybe not as creamy... More
