There’s Gelati and there’s Gelati. If you want to enjoy a real taste sensation, don’t just dive into any old Gelateria, the list below are some of Rome’s best gelaterie where the owners use real fruit, fresh eggs and you will not believe the difference in taste: honey icecream, bergamot, chocolate that is as rich in flavor as the best chocolate bar you’ve ever tasted and without the addition of flavors and colorings…
Via della Panetteria 42
My personal favorite, delicious seasonal flavors, created by masters who use only the freshest of ingredients, there are no cones offered here, only cups as the owners won’t have anything with artificial colors or flavors in their store..
V. Uffici del Vicario 40
Many say it’s the best gelato in Rome — go try it and decide for yourself, interesting flavours such as fig and marrons glacé….
Via dei Serpenti 28
Best citrus flavours in Rome, such as pink graperfruit, blood orange, slurp it up whilst walking back to your apartment in Rome from the Colosseo….
Another i am told about, but have not yet tried, is at the Cipro Metro at the Vatican. Some Italians I recently met told me that this is by far the best in Rome, so if you find yourself at the Metro Cipro near the Vatican give it a try.
Gelatia Sant Eustachio
Piazza S Eustachio 47
If you’re lactose intolerant, then this is the best for you… right opposite Cafe Eustachio is a gelateria with a large range of soya gelato, plus their regular gelato is very very good….
Delle Palma (1000 flavors)
Via della Maddalena 20
This is not really one of the best, however if you’re traveling with kids then they are definitely going to consider it the best for the variety alone, kids particularly love this famous Roman Gelateria for its unique flavors such as merengue and around 20 different varieties of chocolate, there is also a huge variety of sweets sold by weight…
