Ranked #25 of 1,981 Restaurants in Florence
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Hours:
Sun - Sat 12:00 pm - 12:00 am
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.

Small selection of imaginative flavors that pair unique ingredients to create delicious and creamy gelato with deep flavors. Fun and friendly owner too.

I spent three weeks in Florence with my wife and two daughters, 10 and 12. It seems we visited every "top gelateria" in Florence, but we kept coming back to della Passera. The quality was amazing, the ingredients the freshest, the colors only found in nature and the flavors have to be experienced. Also at 1 Euro a scoop, excellent... More

Stopped in today and had pistachio, and my wife the raspberry! Both were excellent and tasted so fresh and real with raspberry seeds and fresh nut chunks still in them! I would say that there scoops are somewhat small as opposed to other places but then again, for 1 euro, there is not much room for argument! I would recommend... More

There are a huge number of icecream shops in Florence (as well as other cities in Italy), and I definitely cannot try them all. But what I could say about this one is that this is the BEST of maybe 5-6 icecream shops I've tried in Florence. The location is at a corner of a quiet backstreet. I was mostly... More

This has to have been the best ice cream that I have ever ever ever eaten!! The smooth texture, the sweetness and the cone was DELICIOUS! The ice cream spirits were all over that place. I wish I could ship some back to the states......

This was the most incredible gelato Ive had in Italy hands down. Super friendly service and AMAZING gelato. Clearly made on the spot! I had a honey/almond milk/vanilla mix and it was one of the tastiest things Ive ever eaten. Im definitely making another stop here before I leave town!

What a cute little place and what an ice cream. There was a queue to taste so without knowing this place we decided to join the queue. For the first time I tried rose water ice cream and it was fab. Highly recommended!

We tried three different gelaterias in three days in Florence (why not?!). First up was La Carraia and we liked it very much. Second was Vivoli, based on reputation and old time's sake, and we were sadly disappointed. The third was this place - Gelateria della Passera - which bowled us over with its freshness and delicateness. Flavors tried hazelnut,... More
