Gelato & Crepes!

We had the best Gelato and Nutella crepe. It's so natural and yummy! The crepes dough is so fresh and has an orange after taste you will never feel in any other shop. The Gelato strawberry and mango was also perfect! Do try it :) and while you're there visit the Brew Dog for a cool beer experience.

I went here with a small group of people and tried the gelato with chocolate and hazel nuts. It was not as thick or rich as we get in Switzerland.

I tried this gelato for the first time three years ago, and on this trip I made a day trip from Rome to Florence for the purpose of returning to this gelato shop. If you come to Italy and skip this gelato, you might as well not come at all. The best two flavors are the saffron--can't remember what the... More

We tried chocolate, coconut, biscotti and pistachio (not all together :D ) and they were all amazing, The prices are kind and the portions generous. They have tiny little benches where you can sit outside and enjoy your gelato. It's probably among the best we've tried in Florence, especially the pistachio which is difficult to perfect, was amazing.

One of the better gelaterias visited in Florence. Tried one of their gourmet flavors and was pleasantly impressed. Gelato is also good value with their generous servings on the cone. They were nearly falling off the cone but I was not complaining. :D

On a small side street off via Nazionale. Made by hand and on the premises. Open late (11:30pm when I visited on a Sunday). Reasonable prices. Small is 1.50 Euro. Good taste. Recommend.

We kind of stumbled on Antica Gelateria looking for a later (for us) evening gelato. As it happened, Antica was pretty close to the Corte dei Medici and that got us in. What kept us coming back two additional times was the flavor and the price. Antica seems to be run by a family who are proud of their gelato... More

This is the best value in Florence for gelato. For only 1 1/2 euros you get some freshly made gelato that is really delicious. Most other gelato stores charge at least one euro more for gelato they get from a factory. This is the place to get real home made gelato for the best price in town.

After noticing prices like €6 for two scoops at other gelaterias, coming across this place was a godsend - it's the most affordable gelato in the city. Even better? It's among the best gelato I've ever had, and I eat a lot of gelato. The biscottino was incredible enough that we went back twice and each of the other flavors... More
