Rome: Fior di Luna Gelato

Fior Di Luna Il Gelato- dark chocolate & almond 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.

This was the first and only gelato that put whipped cream on top. I never put whipped cream on anything I eat or drink but since I was sharing the gelato with Rochelle and she’s a whipped cream freak, it stayed.

We had the dark  chocolate and almond flavors. I’ve never had almond gelato before and it was super duper calafragilistic awesome!! It was perfect with the chocolate.

Strange but the store also had some grocery items for sale.

    Leslie, ever since you wrote of other gelatos shops with cover lids on it I try to find in San Francisco but no. Now it hard to enjoy real good gelato like your in Italy but but better gelatos than none I see.

    Vickie I would be happy with Bi-Rite’s ice cream anytime! Have you tried Three Twins Ice cream? I loved those two in SF.
