    Rome has many excellent gelaterias. The Giolitti gelateria is among those frequently recommended as amongst the best. When Michelle Obama was in Rome she came her with her daughters. The most difficult decision is making a choice amongst the many flavours.

    Giolitti is one of the most famous gelato places in Rome. The decor inside is old world with wooden floors and cabinets and men dressed in black-and-white server attire. The gelatos taste very good and is definitely worth the trip.

    How can one of Rome's best gelaterie be recommended for budget travelers? Because one of Rome's most decadent pleasures is also one of its most affordable, with prices for cones ranging from €2 up.

    I know, I know, I was a horrible friend. He had brought me here with big fanfare, "The Best Gelato in Rome!" he exclaimed. He knew the shortcut through the line and the best flavors. My response: "Pozzetto's in Paris is better." Worst. Friend. Ever.
    After I restored his ego and tried to praise the mediocre gelato, I now know to save honest opinions for sites such as this and not say it to super enthusiastic friends. Is it fine? Yes. Is it worth the wait? Cut the line. It's what the Italians do. But there are other gelaterias in the city that are well worth your time.

    The best ice cream in Rome. There are many flavours, at least 40. It is right behind Piazza Colonna. I used to go there almost every evening when I lived there. There is often a long queue but I suggest waiting.

    I'm not the type to go crazy over gelato. I mean, I love it. It's just not something I obsess over like pizza or perfectly symmetrical building plans. That said, Giolitti is a fun place to get great gelato artigianale with the rest of the known universe. Yes, everyone is coming here, and for good reason. The gelato is superb; it's flavorful but not too creamy (I don't like how creaminess covers up flavors and weighs me down).

    The experience is even better. First pay for what you want, then stand in line to select your flavors. It moves fairly quickly, and the service behind the counter is fun and friendly. I highly recommend a stop at Giolitti.

    (And if you're wondering, I went straight to Il Gelato di San Crispino right after, and I think I prefer Giolitti for both service, experience and flavor.)

    Really good gelato, just too much line when I been there (it was summer), still, worth to wait. Not far from Fontana de Trevi.

    When you're in Rome; even for a few hours; there is only 1 thing that you really HAVE to do. And that's eating one of the most famous ice-creams from Giolitti. I fell in love with it!

    Even if always busy with customers buying their gelato, I really love this place!! Their gelato is really good and while you eat it you understand why you had to go through that long line! Like a little child, I just wish they would make their serving bigger... I can never have enough of that delicious ice cream and those special flavors like figs, rice, passion fruit, stracciatella and many more...

Description:

Arguably the best gelato in the world, crowds flood this cozy gelateria for a taste of great flavors topped with fresh panna (cream). Order first from the cassa, then head over to select your flavors from a number of decadent choices.
