Rome: Gelateria Lo Scimmiotto

I wasn’t planning to eat gelato at 10:30 in the morning. I just went in to waste time while waiting for Tazza D’Oro to open and this gelato shop was just across it. Look how near Gelateria Lo Scimmiotto was to the Pantheon. Of all the gelato we’ve eaten in Italy this was the most commercialContinue reading “Rome: Gelateria Lo Scimmiotto”

Rome: Fior di Luna Gelato

No meal in Rome is complete without gelato for dessert. This was the only gelato store we saw in Travestere. I was initially hesitant since this was the first gelato we were going to eat that wasn’t held inside stainless covered cylinders. The sign for their ingredients gave me hope for good gelato.

I didn’t take pictures anymore since the food was pretty much the same as what IContinue reading “Dessert at Bar Dolci”

Best Gelato at Cara Mia Gelateria

I attended the blessing of Cara Mia’s branch in Greenhills. Cara Mia is part of Amici restaurant. I dragged Rochelle and Chris to accompany me. The minute we sat down they brought food from Amici to our table. They served 2 kinds of pasta and pizza. Our hands down favorite was the spaghetti in oliveContinue reading “Best Gelato at Cara Mia Gelateria”
