The blueberry gelato tasted as though there were real blueberries melting on your tongue. I've tried quite a few gelato places and this is not exceptional, although it is one of the better places offering fruit gelato.

Traditional Florentine dishes at reasonable prices and a low key casual non -stuffy restaurant.I had to eat alone my last night there and while i sometimes feel uncomfortable eating a lose, the staff was attentive and did everything to make my dinner a good experience.

I really love icecream and gad some at least once a day during the trip in italy. Icecream in firenze is not as good as other tiscany towns, but this grlateria was good ( not great). A big plus is that they are not expensive even rhough they are right near the famous bridge

We sampled lots of gelato in Florence and throughout Italy, and were sadly disappointed in this place. The flavors were average at best (a little bland compared to the better places) and unfortunately several of them were freezer burnt. This seems to be a popular Gelateria (we went here based on a recommendation from Rick Steve's guide book) and the... More

On my trip I have tried a few different places. This is by far the best; great view of the ponte vecchio and a great wait staff. I highly recommend a combo of the stracciatella and the peanut butter.

We sat for coffee on a short break from wandering the streets. This little cafe has excellent view at Ponte Vecchio and the smell from freshly baked goodies is irresistible. Very nice coffee and friendly staff. Also, very clean. One more good memory from this magnificent city!

My wife and I moved on from the Uffizi to Ponte Vecchio when we chanced upon this Gelateria. She wanted some gelato (yeah, when it was 6 deg c) so we bought some pistachio gelato. We went on to Ponte Vecchio. I finished 3/4 of it, walked back from the other side of the bridge and went back to get... More

My husband and I always enjoyed a gelato from the place, it was located a short distances from our hotel. The wait staff was always very friendly. The gelatos were the best. My husband enjoyed the peanut butter. This was the only place that had the same 2 euro cup....just the right size....Highly recommend

We typically look for places that make their own gelato instead of selling store bought. We asked if their gelato was gluten free (wife has food allergy) and she immediately said "of course! we make our own gelato!). She even washed the serving spoon just in case. The gelato was great. We ended up also going inside and having an... More
