A new gelateria has opened in Vienna and since discovering it last week, I have visited the place already three times.
Gelateria la Romana was founded in 1947 in Italy but came as a franchise to Vienna. Lucky us!
The shop is held in white with cute decorations while the staff is very friendly and seem to be mostly from Italy as well.
Since all the flavours are only written in Italian and the menu with a translation is still in the making you have to ask the staff who will kindly give you lots of samples.
My two favourites at the moment is the one with hazelnut
which totally tastes like nutella and amarena, which contains chocolate and nut brittle.
Not only that their ice-cream is very different, they are the first I know of that offer FREE chocolate to fill your cone. There are two chocolate streams, one with milk and the other one with white chocolate. I even got freshly made plain whipped cream and another time with coffee taste.
The only flavours that did not convince me where the fruity flavours that were too sweet for my taste but the milky and nutty flavours are really great!
I am curious if all the free options, like the chocolate and the whipped cream will remain free or if it is just for the new opening.
