Oh my God, this gelato is AMAZING!!! On my most recent trip to Italy, I went to Grom about 6 different times and tried all sorts of different flavors. By far the best are the Vanilla (SO creamy and flavorful), the Coffee (tastes like creamy frozen espresso), and the Coconut (with dark chocolate chips). Oh man, I'm drooling just writing this review right now.
The friendly employees mix up the gelato fresh in the 'gelato laboratory' in the back room (you can watch them if you are lucky). They give generous scoops and you get up to 2 flavors in the smallest size. The smallest cup / cone costs about 2 Euros. You can get your gelato in either a cup or a cone. They also had additions like whipped cream and wafer cookies if you wanted to add that on. Watch out because the line will most likely be out the door with locals waiting their turn for a sweet treat and it moves slowly. You have to pay first at the register then tell the scooper what you want.
Grom uses fresh and "real" ingredients so the flavors really shine through. My husband isn't a huge fan of this place but I am absolutely bonkers for it. The gelato here tastes so fresh, homemade and unprocessed and that really lets the natural flavors shine through.
The menu is in Italian only so it's best to brush up on your food words if you speak a different language. Or you can be adventurous and just order whatever and see what you get! I did that once and it was fun. All of the flavors I tried were phenomenal, strong and yummy. This is a gourmand's ice cream Heaven.

One of my favorite gelaterie in Rome. Grom uses only natural ingredients (no preservatives) and they have great flavors. Service is extremely friendly, and they do a good job of keeping the line moving.
I ordered the salted caramel (step back, Bi-Rite in San Francisco, this one is better) and the dark chocolate. Simply divine, especially given you have all of Piazza Navona to enjoy it in.Recommended for:Foodies
