"Tartufo and Gelato in Rome" Italy Favorite Tip by shorty68

Italy General: 753 reviews and 735 photos

Favorite thing: When you are in Rome, you must try the Tartufo (Tre Scalini, Piazza Navona 30) and the Gelato (Giolitti, Via Uffici del Vicario 40).

Fondest memory: The flavors in the gelato were so intense. I have not been able to find any gelato in the US which has been anywhere close to being as good as the gelato I had in Rome.

Tartufo is a grated bitter chocolate-covered chocolate ice-cream ball. It looks like a knobby ball of ice-cream.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
