The most different of this gelateria is their macaron collection. All macaron is fresh made, with a wide range of tastes, instead of traditional biscuit, you can choose a macaron to decorate your gelato! Good idea!

Another gelato post, yes, since I’m running in the city in the hottest hours, gelato is the only passion left to me!
Glauco Gelati Monti, is a more-than-traditional gelateria. Why? Look at the shop, obviously the owner is taking something from the French pastry boutique style. The most different of this gelateria is their macaron collection. All macaron is fresh made, with a wide range of tastes, instead of traditional biscuit, you can choose a macaron to decorate your gelato! Good idea.
They’ve got around 20 gelato different tastes, covering 70/30 creamy and fruity flavors. One of the special is “Sicilian Cannoli”. “Cannoli” is a traditional Sicilian dessert with a roll shape and stuffed with ricotta cheese, chocolate or sometimes pistachio and of course sugar – definitely a taste for sweet-tooth!
The girl is very lovely, introduced me the best-seller flavors and also encouraged me to give a try of their macaron. I choose the “almond” macaron, and put it on top of the gelato. Beautiful! No doubt it’s an Instagram-friendly pic!
If you are a serious gelato lover, personally, however, not recommend their macaron. I’ve talked to the girl in the shop during my last visit, unfortunately, the macarons are not made freshly from the shop, instead, they’re made from central kitchen and delivered. Either the macaron was made improperly, or the fridge in the window was not functioning well, it tasted water-soaked and sticky. Back to the gelato originally, the taste is not industrial, which means good enough with the ingredients and the recipes, well, the price for a small cone is € 2.80 and medium is € 3.50, considering the nearby gelateria I’ve just visited (link here), it’s slightly expensive, honestly.
If you’ve visited any gelateria in Rome and really a hidden-gem, write to me! I really would like to try!
