Visited after an expensive meal and was looking for a cheaper alternative for desert; we were not disappointed and for 10 euros we got what the restaurant we had just left would have charged 30 euros for. The choice of flavours is huge and the ices we had were all delicious; tiramisu was fab fantastic and the chocolate was more... More

Admittedly found this place coincidentally and we truly loved it. Abundant portions, good taste and lots of choices, what more could you wish for? We recommend it as we would go again whenever in the area.

We came across this amazing place by accident while walking through Rome on a very hot day. Our only thought was to get something cold to cool us down. What we got were flavours that burst to life in our mouths. The coconut, strawberry, everything was so like the real thing it was exceptional. What a find!!

I was so lucky to find this place while I was waiting for the motorbike to arrive and start my tour. I loved all the flavors I got, yes flavors because I got three scopes and I am not big fan of the gelato but this guy made me change my mind. Yummy ice cream in the middle of hot... More

We were walking and stumbled upon this restaurant and we were not disappointed when we ate here. My husband had lasagna, my daughter had pizza and I had eggplant parmigiana. The portions were good and the wine was amazing! I would also recommend trying the bruschetta if you are going to eat here. The prices were also very reasonable. We... More

After a couple of hours in the sun going round the Colosseum, yesterday, followed by an hour or so in the even hotter sun at the Roman Forum, we crossed the road and found Heaven at the bottom of Cavour! We had a couple of the best gelatos we have ever tasted, with whipped cream on top. And at only... More

Small shop with a few seats outside and in. Good selection of gelato - try the pistachio, if that's normally up your street you'll love it here, tastes really fresh and is mixed with some choc. The man serving behind the counter was friendly too. Way better than Gelateria la Paloma near the Trevi Fountains where the woman serving had... More

Really nice homemade ice cream!! Very good quality, super tasty and actually quite good for the price! If you are close to the Colosseum it should be a must!

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
