Ranked #31 of 1,947 restaurants in Florence
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Ice Cream
Dining options: Late Night
Description: A stone's throw from the Ponte Vecchio, this gelateria opened up 1 month ago serves the perfect mint ice cream. The fior de panna (cream) and fresh mint leaves is nothing like your standard neon green industrial strength flavored mint ice creams. We went back (and again) to taste this hand crafted sublime delight.

Stumbled on this great place after a long hot day of sightseeing. Red grapefruit and lemon where delicious and refreshing! Very authentic to.

We were in Tuscany for a week and visited alot of gelaterias. According to the rewiews on Tripadvisor this was one of the best in Florence so of course we had to try it. Unfortunately none of us was amazed. We tried 6 different flavors and none of them were any good at all, too strong flavors in some, almost... More

One of my favorite places for gelatto. The flavors are so fresh that they vary on a daily basis. I was able to sample many flavors before choosing my selection. My favorite is the pistaccio with real nuts and the nocciolla. If you want true gelatto skip the tourist cafeterias and come here!!

If you like gelato-- and I prefer French ice cream--- this is the best place to go! Only a few flavors, but each one hand made. The very best coffee flavor and the 7 spice flavor is quite unique….The hand made gelato is so much better than the machine made fluffy stuff you will find in most gelaterias. Definitely worth...

We happened to stay on the same block as this Gelateria. We have sampled a lot of gelato with our two kids. This,is hands down the best we have had. They have unusual flavors and the taste and texture is perfection. I loved the menta absolutely sublime. My kids loved the chocolate and husband loved the pistachio and hazelnut. I... More

I spent 6 weeks living in Florence in 2008 and returned this summer for a 2 week trip. Trying at least one gelateria a day (usually 2) is a must. Passera was the best we found, and we went 2 or 3 times during our 4 nights in Florence. Service was very friendly each time we went, and they indulged... More

We've had quite a few gelato tastings during our European adventure, but today's trip to Gelateria della Passera was the best so far! Try the Mona Lisa - I had it with nougat, my husband had it with the pistachio (he declared it to be the best he's had, and he's had a lot!). For the grand sum of €4... More

The quality of the gelato here was absolutely amazing. We tried it once - then had to come back before we left. It's just off the main strip south of the Arno. The gelato is creamy but firm, with pretty much a perfect consistency. Being a bit of a chocaholic, I was a little disappointed to realize they had a... More

This place is in a tiny 'square' not far from Palazzo Pitti. Great for a stop to recharge for a ice cream and away from the main drag

We tried a number of gelato stalls & outlets all over the city only to discover on our last two days in Florence right on our square Gelateria della Passera offering homemade gelato with an array of natural flavours and unique concoctions, try the Mona Lisa combined with pistachio and at only 1 euro a scoop!
