For any traveller, rome ice cream taste would be a dream and to be tasted before leaving the city. Frigidarium was the first trial for us, I should admit it was a good choise as trying the first. It is just near legendary Baffetto. Unfortunately, the staff were exhausted, I assume, and were sour to the customers which is really... More

Honestly it was by far the rudest personnel that I ever seen. They gave me the feeling that they are watching you as money and they do not care about anything else. Also they do not accept credit cards!! The taste of gelati was very nice, but this is not enough. Also I feel very generous with my rate.

In Rome this was our favorite gelato place. The frigidarium flavor - I'm not sure how to describe it, but it was very good, especially when dipped in dark chocolate. There is always a line here but it seems to move quickly. Definitely worth the trip!

Very nice gelato, recommended by an Italian colleague. Upon checking I noticed it is one of the top Gelateria's on TripAdvisor, this is the most central one.

FRIGIDARIUM! This was easily the best gelato of my life. Got three scoops in a cone - the frigidarium (comes with a cookie!), tiramisu, and ricotta and blueberries, glazed with dark chocolate, aka the stuff that dreams are made of. Highly recommend this combination, it was honestly lowkey lifechanging. Eating it was one of the highlights of my entire trip... More

Excellent gelato which you can have dipped in either white or dark chocolate. Expect a line. They have excellent chocolate fondant, nocci, tiramisu, Nutella. Most of the flavors are gluten free and they have gluten free cones.

we would literally eat here 2 times a day while staying in rome. and don't think we didn't try others that were highly ranked and this one is by far the best. large portions for a fair price, don't get discouraged by the line, it will move fast. but the line should say something about the quality.

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.
