Fodor's Expert Review Alberto Pica

$ Campo de' Fiori Café

Beloved owner Alberto Pica sadly died in 2015, but his name lives on in the gelato shop he ran close to the river. Gelato production is artisanal, and the selection of seasonal sorbetti and cremolate (the latter is similar to sorbetto but made with the fruit pulp, rather than just fruit juice) is diverse. An interesting gelato flavor to try here is the riso a cannella, like a cinnamon rice pudding. The treats are sweet but the owners can be grumpy, so remember: in, out, and nobody gets hurt.
