Really good ice cream in very good price ( 3 EUR). I found only one disadvantage for foreigns: names of tastes are in italian, so you have to ask for english description or... surprise yourself taking something that you don't know what does it mean. The best in Frigidarium is big serving of ice cream and don't forget about its... More

It is definitely one of the best ice cream I had in Italy! I recommend, especially the chocolate and Spagnola one that I had!

Prices are excellent, the service is also great. Simply said: one of the best ice cream parlours in Rome. I ate about 8 different tastes, all tasted very lifelike and authentic. The girls who were selling it were very charming and always smiling. They understand broken Italian as well as English and will advise you even in the rush hours... More

I had the house Frigidarium flavor that was a version of 'cookies and cream'. DELICIOUS. The kids had lemon and it was nice and tart.

I had the most wonderful stracciatella gelato here. It was the perfect combination of creamy and chocolatey and all around delicious. I had this gelato probably 4 times over the last week and even in 30 degree weather. So worth it!

The gelato was fantastic. We went there on our second day in Rome and made sure we came back again before we left. The 2 Euro size is still pretty large, so it's a great value as well.

I love trying the sweets in every part of the world. I normally avoid gelato tourist traps, but when in Rome.....you have to come here, and try their frigidarium house flavor, covered in chocolate and with a cookie on top. Very reasonable prices. The line can get long, but it's worth it.

Thank Jennifer M

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
