Eating ice cream in Rome: Where can I have good gelato in Rome?

Ice cream shops are literally everywhere in Rome. At an intersection or on squares in Rome, it is often said that you can find a “gelateria” on at least three of the four corners. There is even an institute dedicated to the study of Italian ice cream, the Instituto del Gelato Italiano. (© picture: thefoodjourneyblog)


According to ta survey, the Italians consume ice cream three to four times a week. Another interesting fact is that the idea of scoops is largely unknown in Italy. You are not limited to a certain number of scoops, but you can pack as many flavors in your scone or cup as long as there is space. There are three different serving sizes in Italy.

It is also said that Pope Johannes Paul II had a strong liking for their chestnut ice cream. The gelateria Giolitti is not far from the Pantheon and has about 50 flavors to choose from. It is open everyday from 7 to 1:30 am.

On top, you get a nice splotch of their homemade whipped cream. Not only is Mondi famous for delicious gelato, but also for its fine selection of pastries and coffee in all its varieties. It’s a good place for a small breakfast in the morning and some refreshening ice cream in the afternoon when the temperatures rise. The gelateria is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 7:30 pm.

3. Organic ice cream in Rome at Neve di Latte: Via Luigi Poletti, 6, 00196 Roma

Their gelato is exclusively made of organic ingredients. The composition of the different flavors is a complicated and detailed process. The content of sugar and cream is precisely measured. There are fewer exotic flavors to choose from, but instead you will find the classics which are very delicious! Neve di Latte in Rome is open daily from 12 to 11 pm, and until midnight on Saturdays.

Other very good ice-cream parlors in Rome are Gelateria Frullati (Old Bridge Gelateria) and Gelateria La Romana.

The Old Bridge Gelateria in Rome is probably the most famous and maybe also the best gelateria in Rome. The Gelateria ist situated at Viale Dei Bastioni di Michelangelo 500192 Rom. A lot of Roman people also think that the Gelateria La Romana at Via Venti Settembre, 60, 00187 Rom ist the best Gelateria in town.
