Definitely one of the best ice creams I have ever had. Wonderful pistachio, and heavenly many other tastes (we had several, I don’t remember them all...). The crepe is also exceptional, with several fruit types and alcohol beverages you can add to it. Highly recommended!!

One of the best places to get gelato in Rome! Flavors are great and the whipped cream is delicious. If you don’t eat gelato fast don’t get a cone because it will melt before you can eat it. Try a cup and make it last!...More

Lines for this place were long and out the door. Inside, there was no order, except you pay first and then try to get to the gelato person who would fill your order. The chocolate surprise is that they pour milk chocolate inside the cone...More

We extensively tested this Gelateria and can confirm this is the best gelato north and close of Vatican. Seriously, you gonna miss something if you don’t try. My wife also went for a crepe, which was good as well.

Having been to Italy several times and personally taste-tested many gelatos (haha), I can say this is one of the absolute best. It gets very busy, but for good reason. The flavors are fresh and original — and difficult to pare down to make your...More

The ice cream here is absolutely delicious. Creamy and full of flavor. There is a line at this place even at night hours. I highly recommend the milk chocolate which is the best chocolate I've had.

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,

La Romana gelato shop was born in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini in 1947, receiving the name of the founder's daughter. A few years later Vito Zucchi, progenitor of the family, took over the enterprise. Thanks to his fervent creativity and the use of a few ingredients then available, he created a wide range of high-quality flavours which are still made in our stores today. For this reason, we offer traditional flavours made exclusively with selected products, following the old recipes of the past.
