The Best Gelato in Rome

giolitti, rome

Though there are many mouth-watering gelaterias to choose from in Rome, we believe the top spot has to go to the famous Giolitti. A local success story, Giolitti was established in 1900 and still family operated to this day. Their location two blocks north of the Pantheon is the original store, and the beautiful 19th century decor makes it the most elegant place to devour a gelato in Rome.

Giolitti serves loads of traditional flavors such as stracciatella (a cross between fudge ripple and vanilla chocolate chip) and local Roman combos like a scoop ofcioccolato (fudgy chocolate) alongside a scoop of limone (tart lemon sherbet). They also have other sweets, such as ice cream cakes, pastries and chocolates. Tgelato, romehey still observe strict, traditional Italian bar etiquette here. You can’t just saunter up to the bar and order two scoops of cioccolato. Go first to the cashier, order the size of coppa (cup) or cono (cone) you want, and pay for it. Then take the receipt to the counter where put it down (along with a small coin as a tip), repeat your size, and tell them which flavors you want it filled. The up side to this shereade is that you can ask them to cram in as many different flavors as will fit; even a small can hold two or three. The crowds are often thick inside so be patient!
