Gelato bars in Rome are as ubiquitous as pubs in Australia. There seems to be one on every corner although once again I think they target the tourist trade more than the locals.
Our two favourites thus far are di san crispino located opposite a small church near the Pantheon and claiming to use only natural ingredients.
And Grom Grom which we discovered in Siena but I have noticed other outlets around.
The latter offers some unusual flavours including mandarin, pear & nougat.
Keep in mind that the Italian chocolate flavour is quite different to what we are accustomed to as they probably use less sugar and more cocoa.
We did like the look of a third gelato bar at a place called Bar138 but the food was very poor and very over-priced. No doubt being located near the Colosseum gives them leave to overcharge. It’s a shame, as their selection did look yummy!
