Stellar gelato near the MAXXI
This tiny natural gelato shop opened behind the Maxxi (the Zaha Hadid-designed museum for 21st century art) to rave reviews in the summer of 2011. The gelataio uses Italy’s best hazelnuts and pistachios, Amedei chocolate, milk from a biodynamic producer, organic fruit, and high quality sugar to make his intense gelato flavors. Pistacchio and chocolate are a classic and unbeatable combo, but look for seasonal flavors like persimmon, mandarin, and pear in the fall and strawberry and berries in the summer.
