Delicious!

Great find! A little out of the way but worth it. The prices are great for the quality of gelato they serve. One of my favorite gelato shops in Florence!

I made it my goal to find the best gelaterias on my trip to Italy, and out of the 5 places I tried, this was hands down the BEST! The line was out the door when we went around 9pm (always a good sign), but the moved quick. The staff was very friendly and fluent in English. I had the... More

This is one of two that are a must here in Florence! I had the chocolate hazelnut and dark chocolate! Large scoops for only 2,50 euros. The dark chocolate was like eating fudge!

Great flavors. Super prices. Twice a day would be best! Cones or cups. Wide range of flavors. Line moves quickly.

Those ice creams are the best! You can't taste any ice on them, it seems like frozen mousse, they're soft and the flavours are awesome. I specially recommend hazelnut, strawberry and "opera carraia" ( a mix of nuts). And they're really cheap! I guess I'll never eat such good ice cream....

We did not try every Gelato in Florence, but this has to be the best! Only one with 20 people in line at all times, but they move fast and all smiles. Fantastic favors and really good value; go now:)

BEST Gelato EVER. So many options so little time. Every single day we stopped here for a little treat. The Chocolate Fondant is like eating frosting--which to me was heavenly. This wins hands down for creamiest most flavorful on the planet! There will likely be a line but stand in it and take your time to decide which delightful type... More

Everyone in Florence (or Italy) is trying for find the "best gelato" they can have. This gelato shop was referred by a local girl, in her opinions, the best gelato place. Of course other people have their own "best". The place was very close to Ponte Vecchio so when we strolled there, for sure we stopped by for one! We... More

We found ourselves walking past this gelateria and popped in for some gelato (as one would in Florence). The gelato was just ok, nothing too brilliant (Vivoli is way better in my opinion). The staff were incredibly friendly and there was some space inside as well outside to sit and eat the gelato ... very welcome as it was raining.... More
