Though it doesn't have the huge reputation of a Giolitti, or the chic nature of a Teatro, it is hands down my favorite gelato place. Tucked in a corner a little off of Piazza Navona, this place always has a crowd around it for a...More

We tried a lot of Gelato in our holiday but this was the only one we returned to. The flavours are good and it's dipped in chocolate for free if you want it. And why wouldn't you? Yum.

Went to Rome and tried some of the fancy expensive ice creams around and none came close to the amazingly delicious ice cream from this place, just a stone's throwaway from Piazza Navona. Amazing experience!!!

I have tried the gelato from at least 15 different gelaterie on this trip to Italy and at least 60 different ones over my many trips to Italy. The gelato at this place is overrated and not worth the wait in line. The portions are...More

Made my annual fridgidarium stop last night. The house flavor is tasty and the dark chocolate shell with a cookie on top can't be beat. If you want some of the best gelato in Rome this is the place. We also witnessed a few super...More

Very good gelato and surprisingly low price compare the nearby Navona. The gelato was tasteful and rich in flavour. The lane was long but well worth the wait.

Highly recommend that you go to Cantina e Cucina & then take a leisurely stroll down to Fridgidarium. There gelato is the best I've had so far & then they go & dip it in chocolate. Can't go wrong here.

We had the chocolate mint gelato and it was outstanding. They really pile a lot of gelato on the cup or cone and it is delightful. There was a small line but the wait was worth the reward, very very good. There are many places...More

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

Hello and sorry for the delayed reply. Thanks for your request but it is impossible to ship our product, because to do so we should cool it so much that it would ruin, but still thanks for your request that still honors us... More
