Obviously you have to wait to be served, but trust me: it deserves your time! Big ice cream, good choice of different flavors (try grisby al limone :-) ) and topping with dark/white chocolate or classic cream.

Absolutely amazing gelato and at an amazing price-3e for two flavours plus dipped in chocolate! Have to say we were a bit confused on prices and how many scoops you got for which size cone and we weren’t aware of the toppings available-so my husband...More

There are no words to express how delicious the ice cream is. Even if there is a queue it is well worth the wait! And also, the service is fairly fast so you should really give it a try!

We sampled a few in the area while we stayed in the neighborhood for 3 nights. We were getting 5 different flavors to take back to our apartment. Flavors were not over exciting to the rest of the family and selection was limited.

I'm not necessarily an ice cream fan but Frigidarium made me change my mind. Lots of flavors, the ones I tasted were amazing.

Best Gelato at reasonable price - 1 euro per scoop. 1st night, there was a long line but well worth the wait. 2nd night, we trudged through the rain (yes, we have a high level of commitment to good gelato), and found no line, more...More

Located just next to our hotel this Gelateria had amazing queues so we had to try it. Glad we did, ice cream dipped in white chocolate! Advice, wear sleeves,took me 2 hours to lick the residue off my arm.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
