Quite simply, the best gelato I had on our Italian vacation. Highly recommend the white chocolate pistachio. Grab your gelato and head to the bridge to eat it with a nice view.

I am a gelato fiend. I have tried gelato in a number of places and thought I'd found my favorite. I was wrong. This week, I traveled in a different direction, away from the center of Florence a bit (still easily walking distance) along the Arno toward the Ponte Carraia bridge (2 bridges west of the Ponte Vecchio).

This place was so good I stopped here twice in one day, and ended up eating a total of 8 scoops that day! Some of the must tries are the dark chocolate (unbelievable), the orange chocolate, and the pear and ricotta, and the pistachio. This is as good as it gets!

This is one of my favourite gelateria in Italy, I usually have 3 gusto, pistachio, nocciola and Riso, a specialty of the place. Don't hesitate to ask for a little try before you buy!

We are lucky enough to visit Florence often, and this is our favorite gelateria. Nice portions, great variety, fair prices--who could ask for anything more.

Go here everyday that you're in Florence - at least twice a day - for the pistachio and lemon cookie gelato! There is no need to eat any other gelato in Florence! The BEST by a mile!

When you get to Carraia, and there is a line up, please don`t go...stay and wait, because the experience of eating a Carraia gelato is ,...no other gelato is better than Carraia...

I thought the best ice cream in my world was Bertillon in Paris; I was wrong. Carraia is unbeatable and unpretentious. The flavors are unimaginable. This shop offers variety, flavor, friendliness, views onto a bridge over the Arno, and the ice cream is not expensive. You would pay four times that price at Bertillon in Paris. The tiramisu mousse is... More

Completely wonderful, the caramela is well worth a try, and a nice place to stop in the evening for pudding after a bowl of pasta. The staff are also very helpful.

Tasted really awesome. Great portions. Be smart and beat the crowd. For Florence fair prices. 2 roads away you pay double prices.
