There are so many gelato shops around florence and 9 out of 10 are touristy. This is not! It's not directly in a tourist spot, but very close to the Duomo. The workers are extremely nice and it's a great value! I'm trying to taste every flavor here before it gets too cold! Go, you won't regret it.

This place is definitely worth seeking out when in Florence. I had the extra black and the cuor di pardula, which were both delicious and went together really nicely. The prices were very reasonable too. However, the employee serving was not the friendliest person I have came across - maybe she was just having a bad day!

Stumbled on this whilst exploring the back streets. Great variety of flavours with some you won't find elsewhere like ginger and liquorice. Good portions and just pipped for our favourite this visit though handy when walking the centre

I am not even kidding when I say this. This had been the most delicious ice cream I've had during my entire trip throughout my one month in Italy. There are heaps of flavours to choose from and ridiculously affordable for the quality and quantity! Really friendly staff! You won't regret it!

This is a very small gelato shop with about 6 seats inside and a counter with about 20 different kinds of gelato. We tried 6 flavors and they were all great! The flavors were rich and creamy, and the guys behind the counter pet us sample a few flavors before we made our selections. If you are not looking dr... More

This is probably one of the best places in florence to taste gelato. Really cheap, you can pick a gelato for one euro. This place is in a side street and easy to miss. Worth a visit.

We were introduced to the Gelateria by a local who knows Gelato! We went there a few times over our trip to Florence and think this is the best Gelato in Florence. It's a little off the beaten track and very close to the leather markets. Well worth finding this place.

Amazing gelato and only 1€ for the tiny cone which is all I want at the end of a delicious meal. Bacio was out of this world.

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
