A huge choice and fantastic flavours and then shaped into roses, it almost looks too good to eat. The ladies in the shop make the rose forming seem effortless.

Teenagers first request after a meal is to have dessert from Gelarto Rosa. Reasonably priced and great to watch them make a rose cornet for you. Salted caramel popular with us this year!

Worth waiting in line for. All of the flavors are amazing. Two locations near St Stephen's Basilica. You pay the cashier first, for the amount of flavors (2, 3, or 4) and then you hand the ticket to the person who will make your ice cream and you tell them your flavors. They speak English. Cash (Forints) or Credit accepted.

Unusual flavors like white chocolate elderflower or nutella among many are available. The kids behind the counter make scooping gelato a work of art...literally. They scoop the gelato into flowers around your cone. It was almost too pretty to eat...but we did! Twice!

Ice cream lumped into a cone or, at no extra cost, ice cream shaped like a perfect rose, which would you choose? Add into the calculation that the ice cream flavours go from delicious chocolate to vanilla with lavender and you get an impression of what this place is like. Their ice cream is a visual and taste delight.

Description
Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
