Description: La Romana gelato parlour was born in the heart of the historic centre of Rimini in 1947, receiving the name of the founder’s daughter. A few years later Vito Zucchi, progenitor of the family, took over the enterprise. Thanks to his fervent creativity and the use of a few ingredients then available, he created a wide range of high-quality flavours which are still made in our stores today.For this reason, we offer traditional flavours made exclusively with selected products, following old recipes of the past.

Gelato is very good. Not to sweet, texture is smooth, almost a cream. I saw they sell also different treats (hot choc and cakes for example).
Good selection even if we’re in winter. Anyway the quantity is not so satisfying. But yes, you should definitely give it a try!

I looked for the best ice cream shop in Desenzano and read on a few travelling blogs thats this spot was not to be missed.
We went in with very high expectations and were not disappointed at all!
They have so many favours to choose from, and the ice cream itself is so delicious, we could not get enough.
The shop is super clean and inviting- I highly recommend making a gelato stop here when in Desenzano

Absolutely gorgeous gelato!

Tucked away and still a good price for some proper posh ice cream!

Worth the hunt to find!

Quite nice gelato but not the best according to me although many claim that it is. Liked the baci di dama flavor I tried this time. Surprised that it was a bit hard to find, wouldn't have just passed by if I didn't look for it.

Hi ilbombo,
Thank you so much for sharing your invaluable opinions with us.

We are sorry that our handmade ice cream we have passionately made for over 70 years did not meet your expectations.

We research and create new flavours every year, aiming to please our customers without losing the high quality we strive for.

We hope that when you next visit one of our ice cream parlours, you will discover tastes that you like such as our roasted almond (Cioccolata Luisa).

We look forward to seeing you soon in one of our artisan ice cream parlours!

My favorite gellateria in DZ...fresh, homemade product, always delicious. Walk along the plaza and walking street enjoying the many varieties, limone- melone- pesche- spumoni- tiramusi, etc, add fresh fruit for a special delight. Great on an evening stroll!
