We sat out on the tiny patch with five little cafe tables, watching the people. Location, location, right at the Ponte Vecchio . It is both a gelataria and a paninera. Our snack of a shared panina was good, and the coffee was great. Our server, NICOLETTA..She was the best of the trip! Wide smile, welcoming, hard working, and so... More

After 7 hours walking around the city on foot and seeing over 12 "must see" sites we found this charming coffee place next to the river on our way back to the hotel. Our waitress was very helpful with the many choices of coffee and gelato which were both very yummy! After a shot of caffeine and sugar we had... More

The view was pretty but the gelato was just ordinary, nothing to brag about. I believe you can find better gelato somewhere else.

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!
