Still our favourite gelateria in Florence

Visited here on a previous trip, and had to come back again, multiple times - good selection of incredible gelato. In particular, the dark chocolate and biscottini were well worth several trips here over 3 days. Will definitely be back when next in Florence.

Around the corner from where we were staying, this gelateria is well worth a visit. My three scoops ambrosia ( honey and cinnamon), nocciola (hazelnut), and a biscuit infused one were all gorgeous! Go and eat some as part of your Firenze healthy diet regime!

My 3rd visit to Italy and I can say this was my favorite gelato place. I tried different gelato places during the day but I always ended my night with a gelato from here. My favorites were Rose water flavored one and the one with saffron. The portion size is generous and I was given tastings too without asking for... More

Wonderful flavours, friendly service and some little tables to allow you to rest your weary legs and concentrate on the absolutely delicious gelato. Please try the Ambrosia : truly the "food of the gods".

During our time in Florence, we sampled gelato whenever we needed a break. This is the best! The variety is huge, service superb, and two little wood street tables perfect for people watching. Our hotel the Boscolo Hotel Astoria was only blocks away so we stopped every night for our gelato.

The best gelato artigianale we had in Florence. The chocolate ice cream was one of the best I have ever tasted. Highly Recommend

We ate at a couple of other places and none around it taste as good as this shop! My husband got fragola and cantaloupe almost every time. I had mint and lemon which was to die for! Pistachio was great and chocolate was so rich!

This is probably my favourite gelateria in Florence (where I lived for a year, so tried out pretty much every one!). Amazing flavours (persiano is my favourite - so unusual and exotic!) and very friendly service. Wish I could ship the gelato back home....
