Giolitti

40 Via Uffici del Vicario, Rome, 00186

Rome’s oldest ice cream parlor, Giolitti has a history dating back to 1890, when dairy farmers Giuseppe and Bernadina Giolitti opened a small creamery near the Pantheon. Soon after, the Giolittis established a series of shops and began producing ice cream using secret family recipes. Today, this flagship store in the Giolittis’ former home is one of the city’s most celebrated gelato shops, serving such unusual flavors as champagne, ricotta, marsala custard, and watermelon with chocolate seeds. The small store combines simple furniture with marble floors and crystal chandeliers, and seating is also available outside beneath white umbrellas.
