Really delicious gelato. I loved the peanut butter flavor and I haven't seen that flavor anywhere else in Florence. What I also liked about here it didn't seem to be so touristy. It's a small, clean shop, and the owner serves you. Will definitely go back here.

Just popped in for a gelato and sat down to relish the simple but elegant quiet spot near the end of Ponte Vecchio opposite the Uffizi. Service with a smile, delicious gelato and other tasties should you need.

The hazelnut and Pistachio are some of the the best I tasted during a 3 week trip around Italy. Good value for money we a great selection of gelato and cold drinks. A handy stop... More

Vegan or not, in a hot summer day there are two things you don't refuse - an ice-cream and a perfectly made smoothie. I'm an European but I love discovering tastes from all over the world and at the Cantina del gelato there are some really great delicious proposals to choose from. I go there twice a week and I...

For a small cup it's only €2 so slightly cheaper than most places around the touristy parts and main streets. A good selection of different flavours to choose from. Tried the coconut and strawberry while the other half tried the chocolate and gusto Della cantina. Overall, tasty gelato for a good price :-)

Best Gelato in Italy, came back 2 years later to be sure. 12 Gelato places in 4 days this time. Rome, Pienza, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Firenze. Orvieto's place the main Piazza, almost equal. Different rather than better/worse. Senza Glutine, Celiac friendly.

We tried four flavors and for the price and quality it's pretty darn good. I think the best part is of course the service, you can tell when someone is proud of their product. Yum! We will be back!
