Gelateria del Teatro... some of the best gelato in Rome

There are many places in Rome that sell gelato. You have the chains and then there are little places like Gelateria del Teatro.

I read about this place on Moscerina's blog back when I was still living in L.A.

She loves this place and so do I.

It's tiny. Service can be slow. However, they use fresh ingredients. The gelato is made on-site and their prices are similar to the generic chains (2 euros for a small).

The blood orange made from Sicilian oranges is in season for a few weeks. It will take every bit of will power I have for me not to walk over there every day for a cup.

It's a little hard to find, located on a side street off Via dei Coronari a few blocks east of Sant' Angelo Bridge.

Yum, I so love these off the rack places.
I misread Arancina Siciliana - not quite the same, is it!

Two of the nicest gelato that I've had so far, is from Giolitti as well as Tony. In my opinion, its extremely flavourful and robust.

I've never been to Gelateria del teatro, hopefully I'll try some of their gelato soon :-)

scintilla - ha!

erin - same. let me know when you'll be here.

rinaz - I pass Giolitti all the time and rarely go there. Maybe because there's always a line. I must visit soon. They have a great cherry flavor I like.
