Verde Pistacchio is the perfect combination of creativity and quality. The decor gives you your first clue: the interior is modern, pale green, with a Volkswagen van on one side of the room. There is also a series of blackboards on the opposite wall where all the flavors are noted. The ingredients are fresh and of good quality. The ice cream made here is based upon traditional values, but mostly upon shaping that tradition into something new and exciting. Alongside standard ice cream, Verde Pistacchio also serves cookies, crêpes, ‘tristacchio’ (an exclusive triangular cake topped with pistachios), smoothies and hot chocolate.
Gelateria I Caruso
With four different stores scattered across Rome, Gelateria I Caruso is likely to catch your eye several times as you travel through the capital.
