Giolitti Ice Cream Shop, Rome
This may well be the oldest ice cream shop in Rome. In 1890 Giuseppe and Bernardina Giolitti inaugurated this shop for the selling of milk, and so initiated the dynasty of master gelatieri that is still famous in Rome today.
If you really want to satisfy that craving, head for the Coppa Giolitti, a triumph of chocolate and cream flavoured ice cream and zabaione-flavoured semifreddo, topped with whipped cream and chopped hazelnuts.
In addition to the excellent ice cream and handmade crushed ice drinks, there are also excellent pastries, cakes and biscuits.
The historic shop in Via Uffici del Vicario, just a stone’s throw away from the Pantheon, is a beautiful establishment in perfect Art Nouveau style.
