The best ice cream in Rome
 
Gelateria San Crispino
Gelato lovers, memorize this address: 42 Via della Panetteria (near Trevi Fountain), home of the best gelato in Italy. Owners Giuseppe and Pasquale Alongi use only natural, first-rate ingredients - Sardinian wild honey for the signature San Crispino flavor, for instance, superior Piemontese hazelnuts, real pistachio nuts (which is why their pistachio gelato is gray, not day-glow green), seasonal fruit (hence the limited selection), fine liquors. And they don’t serve gelato in cones. “They have artificial flavors and colors,” says Giuseppe.-F.H.W.
