This was our second time to Florence and this is our go-to gelato place. We have tried other places in the city and nobody compares to this place. The staff are wonderful and the gelato is exceptional. You can get a nice size cup for 2 euro and the pistachio is excellent. This place is on a little side street... More

No ice-cream I ate thereafter ever matched up to the bar set by Antica Gelateria Fiorentina. We went with the vendor's suggestions and were blown away by just how good it was. It takes a while to find but do make the effort and visit this place. Highly recommended.

The location is Central, the prices are cheap, and the ice creams ate delicious. What else do you want? The best choice, a lot of tastes

What a amazing ice cream shop! Ice cream is really really yummy, it's one of best ice cream in my life. And more surprizing for me is normal ice cream is just 1 EUR regardless of such a delicious ice cream. Actually, after I finished one ice cream, I went back to the shop and bought another one. To consider... More

I was staying in a hotel near the place, and I have visites the place everyday during my stay in Florence. This placeia just amazing for ice cream lovers like me. The price is incredibly cheap compared to other places in Florence or in other European cities. You have to try the chocolate flavor if you go there. It's just... More

We stumbled upon this lovely ice cream shop by accident while walking through one of the side streets in Florence. They make their own ice cream. Their ice creams are delicious! It's a small cosy shop with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. If you love ice cream visit this shop when you are in Florence.

We just happened on this small gelateria on our first night in Florence and went back 3 times during our 3 days in Florence. The gelato is excellent with a variety of flavors that went beyond the standard. The creaminess and delicate flavors were the best part of the experience. The staff was great and warned me that the persian... More

Stayed in an apartment around the corner from here for two weeks in October and ate gelato from here at least 4 times! The selection and flavors were great, gelato very creamy. We tried many other gelato places in our two weeks but this was by far the best. And the people that work here were very, very friendly. In... More
