I haven't visited most of these except the Il Gelato that just closed, but I dream of Ciampini. The mouth-feel of the gelato is pretty amazing, and the ambiance in that piazza on a warm summer evening—a hushed buzz of people enjoying pre-dinner drinks or some gelato at the end of the day—is just perfect.
I stopped by the Barrilà near Piazza del Popolo after reading your earlier post on the ballet flats but was bummed they didn't have any left in my size. I did pick up a pair of neutral three-tone espadrilles, though...super-cute. Love the idea and look (and the price) of the Le Nou dress too. Will have to keep that in mind. :)
Of the places that Katie recommends in her Rome for Foodies app, I liked this place best—for the ambience and the gelato itself. The gianduja and caffè had just the viscosity and flavor I was looking for.

#6 reminds me of this 2002 editorial, "At 10, Hungry for the Masterpieces," that appeared in the Christian Science Monitor ( The editor writes that her third-grade teacher "evidently saw no reasons why" her students shouldn't be conversant in European art of the 16th- to 19th-century. I've always loved that attitude.
#6 is at Roma Termini, no? I seem to remember that wall after getting out of a taxi. :) is now following The Typepad Team
