The Best Gelato in Rome:
San Crispino is touted to have the best gelato in Rome. I was first led there by the Daphne Inn, one of my favorite places to stay in Rome. I have since heard of San Crispino from several other sources as well. They make a variety of flavors but pistachio is supposed to be one of their best. Although I am not a big fan of pistachio, it was very good.
Just Gelato at San Crispino:
At San Crispino you won't find any special concoctions - no whipped cream or chocolate sauce - in fact you won't even find cones! The owners believe that anything else interferes with the pureness of their gelato. So the gelato is served in a simple cup with a plastic spoon for you to carry out (there is no place to sit).
