The place reeks of tradition. The ice cream unfortunately does not reflect the "savoir-faire" which we anticipated. The strawberry tasted more of lemon than strawberry. The cocoa beans were burned during the preparation of the the chocolate "fundente" , with the consequence of a sour bitterness not to be found on quality dark chocolate. The pesto Di Nocciola contained pieces... More

I love this ice cream shop especially Biscotti della nonna con panna (cream) on top! Their ice cream always tastes fresh and not mass produced. Favourite gelateria

I give 4 only because of the position in the city. No parking place and not ao in the old part of the city. About the ice cream it is just lovely. You van really taste the flavours. It is artisanal and the ingredients are really top. A must of the city ok Padova.

Always come to this gelato shop! It is absolutely the BEST!!! I have tried nearly all flavours at different times and have never had one I didn't like! It's always busy and can be hard to get a seat but it's worth it for the best ice cream in the world! LOVE the biscotto della nonna and bacio della dama... More

The decor is very sleek and the staff is really quite friendly. We bought a tub of gelato which we devoured at home. The texture was very creamy and the flavours were close to perfection! Would recommend a visit anytime of year.

The italian ice cream is the best in the world, but this one is probably the best I've ever tried in my life. The prices also are the highest but the quality is really superb. If you like ice scream it's a MUST.

Thank eurillio

La Romana gelato parlour was born in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini in 1947, receiving the name of the founder's daughter. A few years later Vito Zucchi, progenitor of the family, took over the enterprise. Thanks to his fervent creativity and the use of a few ingredients then available, he created a wide range of high-quality flavours which are still made in our stores today. For this reason, we offer traditional flavours made exclusively with selected products, following old recipes of the past.
