The only reason I won't rate this gelato stop higher is I visited more than 10 gelateria's during my trip to Italy and this one wasn't at the top of the overall list although it was my second favorite in Florence. Nice and creamy, not overly sweet and without the often lingering artificial coating on my tongue when I finished.... More

Il miglior gelato della città. Best flavours, best texture, best price and in the summer it´s open until midnight. But in january is close!

Reasonably priced and a great favor selection. I have tried lots of gelato in Italy and this is one of the best.

A great gelato for a good price. Definitely the best pistachio with white chocolate I have tasted in my life. It seems there are different stores around the city. The one with most flavors is just across the river.

I've been on a lookout for best Florence ice-cream and this was THE ONE! You should try it. My favorite was pistachio but other flavors rule too.

Went there after dinner this week. Friendly staff, very cheap but tasty ice creams. Had 2 cups and could sit on the side! Recommended if you walk along the river and need a little break! :-)

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in the Oltrarno area and must have visited this place at least half a dozen times... Wonderful dark chocolate gelato with oranges! They have single scoops for only one euro for those who are not famished or have smaller appetites... Have been suffering from gelato withdrawal symptoms since we left Italy.

I can't imagine how one determines which is the best gelato shop in Florence--there seem to be hundreds!--but I can say that the treats available here are very very good and given that life is very very short, you should get yourself some.
