Gelato List

  • Caramel and Tiramisu; store on opposite of St. Peter’s Basilica
    –caramel taste stronger than one in America, kind of like a light coffee flavor
    –tiramisu was really sweet and didn’t really taste like the tiramisu cake
    –combination too sweet
  • Lemon and Pistachio; store two blocks  from hotel
    –lemon was sweet and sour at the same time and was really refreshing
    –pistachio was a light green, very smooth and almost tasted like chocolate
    –Good combination
    –Best Texture: Pistachio was very creamy and smooth. There weren’t any bumps are rough spots in the gelato which is impressive since it is made from hard nuts. The gelato was very light, not too dense, and it just melted in my mouth
  • Strawberry and Melon; store next to Vatican Museum
    –strawberry had a rougher texture. Could feel  the seeds. Made with real strawberries
    –melon had a distinct taste like cantaloupe
    –the melon overpower the strawberry
  • Lemon and Peach; Paridiso
    –lemon was less sour
    –Peach had dark chunks of fruit
    — Liked both flavors
  • Mango and White Chocolate; Paridiso
    –white chocolate was not good.  Really thick and too sweet. Texture wasn’t like gelato, more like melted chocolate
    –mango had a rougher texture
  • Lemon and Strawberry; Sunflower
    –lemon had the perfect balance of sweet and sour
    –strawberry was very smooth with little seeds in it
    –Favorite Combination: The lemon complimented the strawberry very well. They balanced each other with the sour of the lemon and the sweetness of the strawberry. The combination tasted like strawberry lemonade. I really like the two fruit combination.
  • Mango and Peach (one flavor); Creme
    –taste interesting. Had more peach flavor than mango. It had a more pink color than yellow
    –had contamination of chocolate so taste was strange
  • Banana and Hazelnut; Sunflower
    –hazelnut was really good. Reminded me of a light version of nutella
    –banana taste not very sweet. Texture like mashed banana
  • Lemon and Acerola; Punto
    –lemon had tiny bits of yellow rind in it. Made gelato more texture and extra flavor of the slightly bitter peel
    –acerola was sweet, but not too powerful. Reminded me of candied cherries. Texture was really smooth
    –Best Overall Gelateria Experience: There weren’t many people in the gelateria so ordering didn’t feel rushed. I really liked the gelato and had time to actually enjoy trying the new flavor. Also, I didn’t get melted gelato over my hands. Plus, there was great company that night.
