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.

Lavender

This gelAto shop is super nice! It's very small but that's okay. My favorite flavors were the lavender, mint, and raspberry sorbet!! Definitely try it

We found this gelatetria on our way from Ponte Santa Trinita to Palazzo Pitti. I took only two flavours- pistachio and almond (1 euro each) but I believe that the other ones are as amazing as these two. My favourite one out of two is the almond flavour - I have never eaten such an amazing ice cream - its... More

Unique blend of gelato that tastes amazing - best that we have tried in all the Italian cities visited so far. We tried yogurt, pear, mixed berry, pistachio flavours over the couple days we were there. Delicious - especially yogurt!

This place is outstanding! We spent 3 weeks in Italy eating gelato every day and this was by far the best. I had my first serve (seven spice and fig) and went straight back in for another serve. Upon hearing our Kiwi accents a lovely lady from out the back came and said hello to us. Highly recommended.

Thank God I went there first, then read the reviews. If not I probably would stay away from this charming hole-in-a wall gelateria. I must say that their service, like any other service in Italy, you could not expect much really..Rather than trying to use my super limited Italian, I just used my fingers and pointed to any flavour I...

The place is small and doesn't offer many different flavors of ice cream, but at the same time, each flavor they have is unique and delicious! For example I took mojito flavored ice cream.

This gelato was fresh and the favors were real ingredients versus some of the commercial shops. The vanilla had vanilla bean in it which is always a bonus, get two scoops in the waffle cone for the real Italian experience.

Some flavors are pretty good. Some... are not. Be sure to specify 3 or more times what flavors you want or you may end up with the wrong one like I did, and then when you ask which flavor they gave you, they will likely not fix their mistake and you'll have to eat some ricotta flavored ice cream. But... More

This gelateria is located in a charming little piazza in a neighbourhood. The gelato is delicious, but the standout flavour is chocolate-orange, it tastes just like a Terry's chocolate orange - pure Christmas nostalgia! The other chocolate flavours were delicious - this is a standout gelateria in Florence, and worth the visit!

We were SO excited to go here based on all of the positive reviews. My husband's FAVORITE flavor is chocolate orange. He ordered that, tried one other flavor and ordered those two. He simply asked about one other and was given the second two. He clarified he wanted the chocolate orange - the guy shrugged his shoulders and meekly said... More
