Gelarto Rosa is well-situated for a pop-in visit. It is in a wonderful square on a well-traveled path. The presentation of the gelato is fun and the taste of the gelato is fine. You likely will have had better but it is good.

Really good gelato, made even better by their beautiful presentation. It's close to St. Stephen's Basilica. We stopped in our our way to the cathedral and sat outside to people watch before touring the cathedral.

Near Saint Stephen’s basilica. It is worth searching and finding this ice cream shop. The ice cream is very good and the presentation is even better!

So cool the way they make the ice cream into a Rose. The Panna cotta salted caramel was my favourite. It’s also very reasonably priced.

It's ice cream. It's shaped like a rose. They have loads of flavours. It's very fascinating to watch. The ice cream tastes great! What more do you want? 😊

The whole deal about this place is that you will get ice cream shaped like a rose. I wasn't having great expectations since I thought it was mostly for show and the quality won't be good. I was wrong, ice cream has amazing flavour and...More

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I'm sorry I really don't know. Like others I was fascinated by the beautiful design. Perhaps they could put the ice-cream in a tub?

Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.
