It is the best Gelato 🍧 outside Italy 🇮🇹 ! When you do city tour around St Stephenson's Basilica, you would most likely notice there's always a queue outside a tiny shop when you come out from the church. It's Gelarto Rosa, and they sell the best gelato outside Italy! It's not just the Rose shape Ice cream makes it... More

Obviously the selling point is the pretty rose shape it is served in - it's really interesting to watch how they make this shape. Thankfully the ice cream/gelato itself is great too, with lots of interesting flavours. People were still eating them in the rain: that's a sign of how good they are!

The most beautiful coned icecream I've ever been served. A work of art. Lots of delicious flavours to choose from. 3 flavour cone 750flt. Opted for chilli chocolate, salted caramel pannacota and pistachio. Tasty and soft creamy icecream. Worth a try and makes a nice photo for your trip to Budapest.

Super tasty ice cream with many flavours to choose from. Not too overpriced either. Serving the ice cream as a rose was a lovely touch. Great!

Not the best, but delicious, you can expect a big line in front of it, but the line is fast and there are seats in front of it to relax a bit.

It is an ice cream in a shape of a rose made of super quality ingredients. I like the dark chocolate and mango, they do taste like dark chocolate and mango and also the others taste as what they are, authentic and fruity. In summer the queue is long, you have to wait even half an hour however since they... More

Sweet, beautiful, delicious gelato. Friendly staff. Coco and strawberry were my favorites :) near the St. Stephan church are 2, so if one has a long line you walk 2 min. And you find another.

Description
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.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
