Hands down best Gelato ever. The after eight flavor is to die for. I was in Italy for one month. I visited Florence, Rome and the Almafi Coast. This is by far the best!

We thoroughly researched reviews and tried several of the top ranked Gelato places. This took the top spot for us. Chocolate mousse was great and so was their flavor of the day! We loved this and would definitely recommend it!

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.

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.
