“My Favorite-every scoop!”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

There isn't a week (or several times a week!) that goes by that I don't visit Rose and enjoy her fantastic gelato. Recently she offered such unusual flavors as Jack Daniels and Irish Guinness. She always has something different and isn't afraid to try very unusual flavors. If you are a local or a tourist in town for a few days she is happy to make your favorite flavor or try to create a flavor that you have always longed for! My favorites are her deep dark chocolate, cinnamon (great for your blood pressure!) and her fresh fruit gelatos...pear and peach are excellent. Recently, I had a very elegant dinner party to attend and requested that she combine some of my favorites into a gelato cake. It looked beautiful and tasted even better...the only negative aspect - it was so good, that everyone raved about it and not the hostesses fantastic dinner! Many thanks Rose!

“Rosa is lovely”
Reviewed 16 June 2012 via mobile

I read the reviews and marked it down as somewhere to go on Genoa. I was not disappointed. The ice cream was excellent and among the best I have ever had, and it was great to see gelato that was paletted and rather than scooped, a true sign of creamy soft ice cream. Rosa is lovely and her passion for her work is infectious, I have been dreaming of owning a gelatteria since.

“Imagine the film Chocolat but with ice cream”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Simply stunning place. Rosa serves up some of the best gelato you'll ever find, catered to your palette-the woman is a witch! It's inspiring to see someone with so much passion for their work.

With it we received some amazing tourism hot spots from a lady who knows the area better than any. You must visit, you can thank me later.

“Incredible”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Not only is Rosa's gelato the best we've ever had, she was the reason that we found out about half of our best experiences in Italy. She's incredibly nice and funny and knows more about Italy then any tourist will ever need to know. Incredible, Profuma di Rosa is definitely worth a visit.
