Always a pleasure to come back everytime we visit Budapest, really good ice cream and a lot of choices, always friendly even when it's crowded

It is usually very crowded here from morning to noon and there is a long queue, but at night it is more secluded. They have a chili chocolate ice cream which has a strange taste and I suggest you try it! It is delicious!

I was there with my friends and we all really liked the gelato. They have so many flavors, my friends had mango and rasberry sorbet and I had white chocolate with lavender and salty butter caramel and everything was sooo delicious. Also place is so...nice, its like old fashioned and the staff was nice to us too. Such a nice place to visit.More

Terrible service, My son was waited to be served,but they ignored him. As usual in Hungarian customer service, workers are not trained for hospitality

Best I've ever had. There is a lot of tastes to choose from, but I especially recommend lemon-basil Taste. Staff was helpful. Prizes arent high.

Not just really good looking and gorgeous, but flavours we had were delicious! I can recommend cinnamon and pineapple with coconut. Only thing I could reproach is long queueing. But I am glad we held on.

Not as gimmicky as the rose-art makes it look. The ice-cream itself is top quality, absolutely gorgeous and not too expensive at all. Highly recommend the lemon-basil sorbet, utterly out of this world.

This is a famous ice-cream shop and always with a waiting line in busy hours of the evening. So we wanted to taste and taste the difference 🤔 I think too much sweeteners and sugar as after you finish your ice-cream, the sweeteners taste stats...in your mouth. You certainly should try when you are by the Bazilika, but don’t expect a high taste.More

My wife and I visited Gelarto Rosa on the advice of a friend and we loved it so much I think we stopped in on all five days we were in Budapest. First, they carve your ice cream into a rose shape. But that's not...the best part. The gelato is delicious with flavors (and flavor combinations) that I've never heard of. My favorite: pear. It really tasted like pear! Others we had: Lavender with white chocolate, mango, basil-lemon, hazelnut. There's a board outside of available flavors that changes daily. All of them are good though.More
