I've been meaning to check out this place. Recently Katie Parla wrote about it.
One sunny afternoon I decided to treat myself after waking up at 5:00 a.m. to work. I read some article online that said Al Settimo is near the Vatican. It's not. It's in the Prati area but it's north of Piazza Mazzini. It's a good 30 to 40 minute walk from the Vatican.
This place is not close to my house at all. I don't care. I will be back.
The sour cherry sorbetto brought tears to my eyes. Seriously. I will take the slow ass 280 bus or walk an hour from my house to have it again.
This artisanal shop is known for it's interesting flavors, like Greek gelato with cardamom. The lemon sorbetto took me back to the Amalfi coast...so refreshing on a hot summer day.
It's a small local place on a side street. It was busy when I went and there wasn't a single tourist in the joint. If you are staying near that side of town, it's well worth a visit. Just brush up on some basic Italian. I don't think there's a lot of English spoken there.
Closed on Mondays.
