If you want to stop at one gelateria in Rome, this is the one. It's very affordable, and the gelato itself is the best dessert I had all trip. The Frigidarium special flavour is to die for, and every other flavour I had and my friends had were delicious. If you come only once, definitely try the signature flavour.

I think, that it was the best gelato in Rome. This one and the Goilliti one. Although it was very good, the price was also fair. Tried , once, before three years, and i tried it again now... Same excellent quality.

Lots of different flavours, good value at 3 scoops for 3 euros. Along lively street with bars and restaurants. Staff friendly enough. Yes, labels are in italian, but it's not too hard to figure out most of the flavours. Tried some random scoops on a couple of occasions and all were great.

There's nothing special about this ice cream. It is too sweet for my taste and the fruit tastes seem artificial. In Rome are more other places withgood homemade ice cream (ex. Gelaterie del Teatro).It would help if they had given the name ice cream also in English.

The flavours were below expectations and they weren't translated in english. I could feel the sugar in excess on some flavours like chocolate or fragola. It is alot worse than Gelateria del Teatro which me and my friends tried also.

I have eaten a lot of gelato but this is the best. Dipping the whole thing in chocolate? You must be kidding! No question the best in Rome.

Very good well-priced ice cream in central Rome 5 minutes away from Navona Square. Flavours are very diverse and some of them truly unique. Definitely recommend!

Amazing ice cream. There are another few gelato places around in the mixture of those small streets, so look out for this one. It's quiet small. Tasty and great. What else I could say? Oh, they pour chocolate over the ice cream, which gets hard instantly as a result of the cold. There, you have a chocolate that is filled... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
