Interesting flavours!

I think there were maybe 5 or so vegan flavours when I went in, and the girl working gave me a few of them to try! I tried one with crushed praline bits in it, which I’d never seen before, plus the two I got, a berry stracciatella and another named a word I’d never heard before, F-something 500? that was a chocolate and maybe cherry. The point is, both were great and I would recommend this place!

Una bellissima sorpresa

Finalmente una gelateria dove c’è una scelta di gusti vegani che non siano semplicemente alla frutta. Buonissimo il crumble pralinato alla mandorla. Il cono e il cioccolato da mettere sul fondo sono vegani!

Went to this shop our first night visiting Verona- there are so many flavors!!!! About 8 vegan ones and loads of others for non-vegans. Prices were phenomenal- €3 for a small cone (which is not even very small). The chocolate is vegan too! Highly recommend the praline crunch as well as the chocolate one. I will definitely be going here as many times as possible the next few days!!!

Pros: Tons of options , Great prices and flavors, Good customer service

Cons: Zip, zero, nada!

Vegan gelato

I had the crumbles with almond in a vegan cone with vegan chocolate. It was really good! Wish there were more than two non-fruity flavours though, I think there were a 6 vegan flavours though.

Several options clearly labeled as vegan. Good flavors, vegan cones, biodegradable cups and spoons. Open till late.
Not a very touristic spot, but quite easy to reach from the city center.

Pros: Many options clearly labeled , Other products too

Super yummy and many options

They had at least 7 vegan flavours and the ones I chose were so good! Also the cone and chocolate sauce are vegan and made the experience even better! (The cone wasn’t that great though)

Pros: Vegan sauce , Lots of flavours, Vegan cone

So good!

The vegan flavors here were amazing. They definitely made me wish I could handle large amounts of ice cream because I’d like to have tried all of the flavors!

Pros: Many choices for vegans, They even have vegan cones

Hella decent vegan flavours

Somewhat small but very rich vegan selection of ice-cream flavours.

Don't miss out on their crumble... 😋

Lovely small place to sit while you have your ice-cream, but nowhere to sit outside (typical Verona) on a nice day.

Pros: Delicious ice-creams, Vegan cones, Air conditioned

Cons: Only around 6 vegan flavours, Few seats inside and no outside seating

Lovely vegan ice cream!!! A small selection but very nice! I’d definitely recommend the praline crunch (think that’s what it’s called 🙈) would have given a 5 star but the customer service was poor to be honest... dont expect service with a smile but for some amazing gelato, it’s worth it!

Delicious ice cream

There were 7 vegan flavors available when I visited (of which most of them were fruit flavors). The cones were vegan and they even had vegan dark chocolate to pour in the bottom of the cone. Overall one of the best ice creams I’ve ever had. Would definitely recommend the blueberry, elderberry and lemon flavor, it was amazing!

Pros: Relatively many vegan options , Delicious, Friendly staff

Cons: Flavors only displayed in Italian

The vegan gelato of dreams!

La Romana offered us the best vegan gelato from our 17 day stay in Italy (and we sampled a LOT of gelato). They had around six vegan options and not just the usual fruit sorbets (yawn).

I ordered praline crumble, and dark chocolate with sour cherries; both of which were out of this world delicious. The praline crumble was a creamy, sweet, nutty gelato with chopped nuts mixed in. The dark chocolate with sour cherries was the best gelato, and even ice cream, that I have ever tasted – hands down. The tang of the sour cherries combined with the rich, creamy, dark chocolate gelato was heavenly.

Pros: The best vegan gelato you will try

Delicious chocolate ice cream

There weren't too many vegan flavours here, but I absolutely loved the one I chose: a chocolate gelato with biscuity chunks in. It was lovely! Cones are vegan (don't get it coated with chocolate though), and the staff were really knowledgeable and friendly.
