View The Best Gelato in Rome and Therefore the World in a larger map
2014 coule be a truly stellar year for artisanal gelato in Rome. But it may be nearly impossible to surpass 2013, which was likely the greatest year in Rome’s gelato history thanks to Fatamorgana’s expansion. Neve di Latte is still the Roman gelateria to beat and last month, Simone Bonini threw his hat into the ring, inaugurating the first Rome branch of Carapina. This Florentine import is already among the most expensive artisanal shops in Rome (cups start at €2.50 and the gelato goes for €27 a kilo). Instead, at Otaleg, Il Gelato, Fatamorgana and other great spots, you can get two flavors of the good stuff for a mere €2.
