So many flavors, so little time! My favorite gelato in Rome! This is the real thing: home-made and of the highest quality. Conveniently located right near the Pantheon, the atmosphere is old time ice cream parlor/pastry shop/candy store/coffee shop, the kind of place I remember in Italian-American neighborhoods during my childhood and many of which have since disappeared. The procedure iis to decide what you want, then pay the cashier, after which you give the receipt to the person who will prepare your selection. The choices are endless! There are 150 flavors of gelato and other frozen desserts including fresh fruit flavors, frozen mousses, creams, granita, sorbets, and even options for the lactose intolerant. There are 50 different varieties of chocolate gelato! I especially like the fresh fruit flavors in season. My wife enjoys more unusual flavors such as rice, chestnut or ricotta. The smallest serving costs 2.50 euro, which can include two flavors. If we lived in Rome, we would want to go here every day!Recommended for:

My friend was curious about the gelateria that had more than 150 flavors-- and this is it. It was good-- not great. I wouldn't revisit, and to be honest--after tasting Giolitti's-- she wishes she hadn't too. So that's Della Palma-- there if you're curious but life is too short for simply ALRIGHT gelato.Recommended for:

One entrance is an onslaught of chocolate (impression upon first sight: Ooh!) and the other opens up to one of the largest displays of gelato I've ever seen (impression upon first sight: Oooooooh!). The chocolate section alone is impressive. This is probably one of my top picks for recommendations (but know that it's also a little pricier). They have all sorts of flavors you won't typically find elsewhere, and even if it weren't for the myriad gusti, the selection is still delizioso. Out of all the gelaterie I've visited in Rome, this place seems to have the friendliest staff (and I've been to A LOT). It's conveniently near the Pantheon if you need a geographical point of reference.Recommended for:
