From The TV Show: Gelato in Rome

In the Rome episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy indulges in some very unique gelato flavors.

When in Rome, eating gelato is a must but not all gelato is created equal. Avoid the places that display fluffy flavors in fake colors. Typically this gelato is filled with chemicals. Gelateria del Teatro ai Coronari at Via dei Coronari, 65-66 makes delicious and unusual natural flavors like sage and raspberry (the most popular flavor), pumpkin with chocolate and Amaretto and white chocolate with basil. Gelato, of course, is similar to ice cream but traditionally has more milk, no eggs and is churned at a slower rate, making it denser. The gelateria is open daily from noon to midnight.
