A trip to the Flaminio district, to taste the best ice cream in town (and see lots of contemporary art) while getting to know the other artisan ice cream shops
Italians really take ice cream seriously. Sorbet or traditional, it should be homemade, natural and delicious. The rankings are updated every year and having an ice cream is like going out for dinner; you need to carefully choose the location. Here’s our selection, starting from Neve di Latte, together with a tour of Rome contemporary art.
Looking for what some have called “the best ice cream in Rome” is an opportunity for a tour in the Flaminio district, right next to the Parioli, an area that exudes art and creativity. Neve di Latte is an exclusive ice cream parlour, just 50 meters away from the Maxxi, National Museum of 21st century Art, an institution dedicated to contemporary art and architecture, created by famous architect Zaha Hadid. This ice cream, created by Simone Romano, is a mathematical formula: ingredients are carefully selected and organic. Biodynamic milk comes from Upper Bavaria, eggs are from Paolo Parisi, coffee by Gianni Frasi and chocolate by Amedei. Sorbets are made with freshly picked fruit and you will never find preservatives or stabilizers in them. The atmosphere is very intimate, with a big table and the display window is always refined and creative. Nearly 20 different flavours are available. Refined sugars are banned, only Philippines muscovado and Brazilian sugarcane are used. As with all Roman ice cream parlours, fresh cream is always included. To get rid of the extra calories, combine the sweet delight with a mini cultural tour: first stop, the Olympic Village, built in the 60s to host athletes from around the world. Second stop, the Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by Renzo Piano, which hosts classical music and pop-rock concerts. Do not miss the Milvian Bridge, the oldest in the capital in total contrast with the steel and chromed concrete modern Ponte della Musica, reserved for pedestrians and cyclists.
Founded 60 years ago and known as the kingdom of Tiramisu, it also proposes a wide variety of ice cream flavours including the eponymous one. Try it – it’s near the Milvian Bridge.
In Rome since the 50s, these Sicilians base their ice creams on seasonal ingredients, but they always manage to have a wide range of flavours, from black mulberry to Sicilian cassata.
A modern ice cream that substituted white sugar with stevia sweetener and agave syrup. Creative combinations include savoury flavours like gorgonzola, wasabi and green tea.
The best pistachio ice cream in town, and a unique orange Almond flavour. This ice cream is soft and light, fresh and smooth on the palate.
An ice cream shop that uses quality ingredients and focuses on traditional flavours, without any experimentation. Don’t miss the Hazelnut IGP and mascarpone cream.
