"This is the hands down best gelato we had. Was told by our tour guide to try this place. We came in 9 pm on wed night and it was pretty packed. Note you need to pay first at the cashier near the entrance before getting your gelato or pastries. We did not know this so wasted time in the line."—Carlthan L.
"There is no comparison.  This is THE must do when in Rome.  Forget the Coliseum, Forum, museums, Vatican.  It's about the gelato - and this is THE spot."—Philip B.
"Giolitti is an Italian gelateria, café and pasticerria that opened in Rome, Italy in 1890. It was founded by husband and wife Giuseppe and Bernardina Giolitti. The family sold milk from their own pastures in the Roman countryside."—Matthew L.
