HC does Rome: gelato
My favorite part of Rome--gelato!
--Gelateria di Joe, Campo di Fiore: funky, friendly, and pretty good. Pistachio was a standout.
--San Crispino: absolutely delicious. Concord grape, raspberry, valrhona chocolate, very nutty pistachio. Interesting fruit flavors. I didn't miss the cones, but others did. Best of all is the San Crispino location at Fiumicino airport.
--Gelateria Aracoeli: chocolate fondante was the deepest, darkest chocolate of all. Just don't ask for a sample/taste. No samples!
--Giolitti: dozens of flavors, with brusque service & hordes of tourists. The fruitti di bosco was outstanding, loaded with fruit.
--Alberto: coconut was the star here, full of fresh-tasting grated coconut.
--Gelateria della Teatro: our favorite, hands down. Ricotta/fig/almond, crema della nonna (pine nut caramel), pear/caramel...a wide variety of fruit flavors/milk-free flavors. Seemed to have the most interesting flavor combinations.
I do also like Gelato very much and I would like to know full adrress and location of Gelateria del Teatro(??). Are you sure about its name? I live in Rome and I must try it!!
My favourites are:
San Crispino (both location at San Giovanni and near Trevi, never been to FCO so far)
Via della Rotonda 22 (Pantheon)
try the Sicilian style stuff called cremolato
Via Cola di Rienzo 103 (not far from Vatican)
Via Principe Eugenio, 65 (not far from Termini train station)
