Buontalenti and cioccolato are divine.

Been to a few gelato places in Florence - this one had the best chocolate one I tried. The buontalenti is classic Florence as one of the locals buying there said to me. Great experience.

Classic flavors, good quality gelato but nothing to write home about. Have been very deceived by posts on TA...only thing i can say is that it's at a good location so nice views on a beautiful day. It's cheap though.

The sweet flavours here are great, but the sorbet flavours tasted artificially sweet (tasted more like the typical fruit juice from a carton, as opposed to fresh fruit juice) Lovely location by the river (on the not-so-busy side), offering a quiet place with a view to enjoy your icecream. Map location is slightly off, seen from the river it is... More

We happened upon this tiny little gelataria and found it to have the tastiest gelato we have eaten during our 2 months in Italy. We tried the the Whiskey and Cinnamon, the toasted Nutella, the Peanut Butter and the Dark Cherry. All were fabulous. We can highly recommend Contina del Gelato for anyone wanting to take a break from the... More

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.
