My husband and I split a marguerita with ham pizza here for lunch while visiting Florence. Really enjoyed it.

This gelateria was down the street from where we stayed, a truly local gem! Francesco was fun to talk to and it was really wonderful gelato- our favorite was the Dolce-latte and the Chocolate Fondente/de niro- really excellent. They are value for money and superb customer service. Open until late, a must visit. We went all the days that we... More

We sampled lots of gelato whilst in Florence and both had our favourites at Antica! My partner had the rose flavour which was really interesting and tasted very natural. I tried the honey and the extra black, both of which were delicious.

They have gf ice cream and cones. They do know how you won't get sick with cross contamination of gluten.

Really good gelato--some of the best we had on a three week tour of Italy. I loved the extra black--if you enjoy dark chocolate you MUST try it!

The Best in the world - or at least the countries I have been to! And are soooo reasonabl, way cheaper than other ice cream parlours!. Didn't help that we stayed... More

I'm a gelato fanatic and had it almost every day, sometimes twice a day, on our trip to Venice, Florence, and Rome. Of all the different places I tried, Antica Gelateria was the best one in Florence and probably the best one in Venice and Rome also (though there were some close runners-up). I do have to qualify that judgment... More

A friend found this place and took us there and we keep going back pretty much weekly (we live in Florence). My favourite is Cuor di Pardula - ricotta, orange & lemon zest, and saffron. Simply delicious. The cheesecake flavour is my second favourite, and the two make a great combination. The Extra Black chocolate is also excellent. We love... More

We went here several times and had several flavours of icecream. Ask the person serving you and he/she will let you taste before you buy. All sizes available from 1eur up to 5eur and you get a lot for your money.
