Anytime I am in rome, i take a detour to visit Il gelato.
Because it is simply the best.
I suggest a test: close your eyes and name the flavour you are tasting....
With most ice creams you will not distinguish the subtle notes....whereas here you defnitely will !
This one is in the very center of Rome, a stone throw from Spanish steps or Piazza Navona.
And the people that work there....really really friendly.
Not because they have to, but because they are friendly nice people.

In the hearth of Rome, 5 min walking by spanish steps, close to Via Condotti (luxury shopping street) and the Ferrari Store I have found my best experience with italian gelato. The place is called "Gelato Centro Storico" and they sell only homemade delicious gelato. They use only fresh food (fruits, milks, creams etc..) to make it and u can taste it in sooo many flavours!!!
They have the classic ones (chocolate, vanilla etc) but even some special creations like chocolate with orange peels or vanilla with homemade caramel...they even had wasabi or gorgounzola gelato..thats incredible!!!...everything is homemade and surprisingly tasty!!
Just go there and try them all!!..thats my suggestion!!!

Over 100 flavors, ranging from vanilla to chocolate to sorbets to savory. Gelato was fantastic - generous portions - and service was especially friendly and helpful. A Rome must!!
