Real Gelato. Authentic and no frills. Tried a few different Gelato places during our visit and this was the best by far. Full of locals, we were the only tourists there. Pistacho and chocolate mixed together was delicious! Try to make a stop here when you plan on visiting the Vatican or else the location is a bit out of... More

I tried this gelateria on the second-to-last day of my trip and I wish I tried it the first so I could go back several times. I got pistachio with dark chocolate and it was amazing.

This was close to our lodging and decided we needed something sweet after getting pasta wasted. Our experience was not good due to the rudeness of guy that was working that night. The place was empty and when we entered the store, he saw us, disappeared to the back and only came back out when another person walked in. He... More

This is one of two ice cream shops, one not far from the Vatican just off the busy shopping street Via Cola di Renzo and the other close to Piazza del Popolo. The flavours are superb and it is like simply eating the creamed frozen version of the original. A real competitor to Giolitti....

Based on Anthony Bourdain's recommendation we went to check out this place and it was AWESOME! We have tried a whole bunch of different gelatos, and of course it is all a matter of personal taste but the red plum was AMAZING (not too sweet, a bit tangy)

Although priced at about a euro more than other ice cream places in the area, Gracchi may well be worth it. The Crema di Pinoli ice cream is particularly delicious and haven't seen that flavor elsewhere.

I visited the second location on Via de Ripetta, near the Piazza del Popolo -- absolutely delicious! I'd recommend the pear and caramel flavor -- unusual and the best gelato I've tried. The chocolate with rum was also excellent.

Worth to visit- traditional Family gelateria with many sorts of icecream- All names are in Italian and English as well. Everything is good looking. We tasted vanilla, cocos, pistachio, cuba -chocolate with rum. We didnt like the chestnut icecream, it was too sweet for us. We can recommend it highly. Locals prefer this place

The reviews we had read about this gelateria seemed to justify the 30 minute walk from our Trastevere apartment. So after a lovely meal at home, we set out along the Tiber, past the Castel Sant' Angelo and down the Via dei Gracchi. We were not disappointed. The offerings were solid; not the best we have had in Roma but... More

We visited on a chilly rainy night after dinner so crowds were few, unlike what I read. They had some very unique flavors with some amazingly dark chocolate options. Some of the great flavors we had were pears and ricotta, a cream with Marsala and Apple and cinnamon.

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
