After eating Gelato everywhere, we decided to try what trip advisor says is the best around. We were not disappointed. By far the best Gelato in Rome. Try the dark chocolate, it is incredible. Watch for the pick pocketeers and the vendors, very aggressive in this area.

I've been twice during my visit in Rome. Both experiences were great, and the ice cream is awesome. I strongly recommend to pass by Valentino's gelateria and meet himself!

We read the reviews and chose Valentino as there are a lot of real tourist traps in this area. The owner is a real character. Very funny but polite and respectful also. Delicious ice cream and worth the extra muniute's walk from the Trevi fountain. We'll be back!!!!!!!!

And save yourself for here. You can't sit down but console yourself that you might work off a calorie or 3 as you meander down towards the fountain clutching your cone or tub. Flavours are stunning, service is friendly. This place is worth the reviews and it's not outrageously expensive, even for somewhere as touristy as Trevi. Go. You won't... More

Excellent gelato right by Trevi fountain, so it's perfect location. The older couple that runs it are so great. They are clearly in love with each other, and they playfully banter with each other, and the customers. It's also practically right next door to the very popular That's Amore restaurant, so you can skip dessert in that insanely crowded restaurant... More

We ate Gelato from here about twice a day for the 4 days we were in Rome - we tried many other places. What more can I say, it was that good

The ice cream is so delicious, so fresh and I'm so many flavours that I have to come here every day this trip to Rome for sure. The service is also amazing, they let my daughters try many flavours and were just super nice! Thank you!

Delicious ice cream, with an excellent range of soya options for my girlfriend who can't have milk based products. Super friendly server, strongly recommend this place!

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
