Gelato here was so great we had to go 3 times during our stay. Offers flavors from coconut and lemon to triple berry cake and tiramisu. Don't worry about a line outside the door - it moves quickly.

Small ice cream shop but so many flavours inside! Also very reasonably priced and good value for money on the amount of ice cream you get

Finished off dinner with some gelato from Carraia (not far from Trattoria Sostanza where we had an amazing dinner). My husband commented it was the best gelato he's eaten thus far on our 3-week trip in Italy. There was a line out the door when...More

We thought it was really good it’s just the fact that we had better gelato in Rome so it’s hard to compare but this was great!!

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
