'I had gelato at least twice a day!' was the most common phrase I heard from everyone who returned from Italy. I didn't believe how addictive gelato could be until I tried my first scoop at Giolitti, Rome's oldest gelato shop. The gelato here definitely melts in your mouth and there is quite a selection to choose from. They also sell some pastries, frulatti, and granita, but I only sampled to gelato. I liked the hazelnut and tiramisu gelato, but the rice gelato was also worth trying. Also heard that the watermelon with chocolate chips was very tasty.
