A range of delicious ice cream, with the darkest dark chocolate ice cream i've ever seen. Certainly among the best gelato we had in Florence.

I am not an ice-cream "afficionado" but this ice-cream I could eat every day. The dark chocolate with sour-cherry just "exlpoded" in my mouth. Not to be missed.

I really liked this gelateria. Small in size, big in taste. And the locals are also seen here which is always a good sign. The gelato is creamy and one of the best limone and pistaccio I had when visiting Italy - and I had at least 2 gelatos every day!!!

We didn't get to return back here for seconds because we were in search of the best Gelato in Florence, so we had to try as many places as possible. La Carraia was by far the best we had. You can only sample 1 flavor per person and we ended up having or trying the following (In order of how... More

Fantastic, high quality gelato that has beautiful texture and flavour. They have a wide range of flavours, and the portion sizes are generous. Overall, great value for both quality and quantity. I tried the dark chocolate (rich and decadent) and biscotti (very similar to cookies and cream, the cookie part was delicious). It's a bit of a walk from the... More

We have been there twice and have had 6 flavors. All have been outstanding, especially the dark chocolate. The mousse flavors are lighter in texture and tend to be very sweet almost like cake icing. The chocolate was dense and rich. A small cup was only 1.5 euro and was piled high. Service was cheerful and efficient. Worth a special... More

This is a must go for Gelato if you are in Florence. They have all the great typically flavors and some unique choices as well like cheesecake, after 8, and cottage cheese with Pear. The consistency of the Gelato is perfect and no too quick to melt. Long line, but it went fast.

Best gelato we had in Florence. Superb quality at a really low price. Hardly surprising that queues were always present.

This is what I call a true Italian gelato place. The flavours and quality were very impressive and not just for the 'tourists'.
