Friends told me was good. After dinner and went to get couple of favour. Cookie n cafe. Prefer the cafe one very smooth. Florence was a bit too hot so need to eat the ice cream quicker before it's melt away.

The location is not in the center of city but still we found it and their ice cream is very good, very refreshing. The price is more friendly so we went to had twice during our three days trip in Florence.

I had gelato here every day for over a week - I had two different flavours each time and every flavour I had was delicious - and it's only 1.5Euro

We spent 2 days in Florence and ate a fair few gelato's and this place was the best by far. Amazing ice cream that made us disappointed with the others.

We visited this place twice while we were visiting Florence, the first time because we were looking for some gelato and this place had a queue out the door we thought we would give it a try.

Good selection of flavours, but it is the quality of the gelato that's outstanding. Creamy and flavourful, natural and rich, not sugary at all. Generous scoops and unbelievably cheap for the quality.

Well worth the walk - great flavors, great prices. Had banana, stracciatella (like chocolate chip - my husband's favorite), coffee, cherry, tiramisu & all good. Everyone friendly & helpful.

We tried a LOT of icecream (including the icecream champion) but this one was without a doubt the best one.

Absolutely delicious! And it was only €3 for a huge cone with two massive scoops of beautifully flavoured ice cream. So good we visited twice!
