My favorite ice cream parlor in Rome, Gelato di San Crispino, is considered by many to serve the best ice cream in the world. However, since last time I was in Rome, a new competitor has arisen. It’s called Grom, and some people say that their ice cream is even better than San Crispino’s.
Of course I had to find out the truth and the only way was to visit both parlors and try their respective signature ice cream. I started by paying a visit to the new Grom store on Piazza Navona and tried their Crema di Grom. I must admit, the ice cream was uncommonly delicious. Then I went on to San Crispino by the Pantheon, and after a cup of their Il Gelato di San Crispino I could safely say that the winner is still San Crispino.
Although, you really don’t have to choose when you’re in Rome. Try both of these places and other ones too.
