Name of wonderful gelateria in Rome is...?

Hi
I'm drawing a blank on the name of an outstanding gelato place in Rome, on Via della Maddelena, a couple of blocks from the Pantheon.
Does it ring a bell with anyone?

Elaine,
It's Della Palma, one of Steve James' favorites. Still haven't made it there, but got to San Crispino on my last trip, and it was truly marvelous!

What is the name of the gelato place right by Trevi Fountain? If you are facing the fountain, it's to the right. I have fond memories of the best pineapple gelato there!

Gelateria della Palma- about i/4 mile up to your left from the Pantheaon. Any and every flavor gelato you can think of. Try the riso(rice). Sorta like rice crispies. Excellent. It is also air conditioned and has indoor seating.

Oh gosh, I just start to salivate when I see the words Della Palme. We tried Giolitti but returned to Della Palme, where we stopped in at least twice a day. Don't miss the marrons glacee (candied chestnut). Outstanding!
