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!

We found this place by accident after getting caught in a rain shower. We had chocolate and pistachio and found it to be very nice! Very close to the Ponte Vecchio.

My daughter and I stumbled across this shop while walking in Florence. After eating gelato daily for two weeks throughout Italy we recognized the good stuff! Friendly service with suggestions for matching favors. I am craving a scoop as I write this.

My wife and I ate more gelato than we would like to admit during our Italy trip. This place is the best of all we went to. You must try it if you're in Florence.

The gelato here was amazing! It's kept in the proper containers and is one of the few proper professional gelatorias. Everything was freshly made and tasted far better than the commercial stuff. Definitely go here if your in this area of Florence.

Awesome location, walked into the establishment and found flavous fro Brasil! Wow, i said to my wife"your people are here!" The owner makes all by hand and she is fluent in Portuguese. Brasileros are welcome. The Gelato(not ice cream) is smooth amd creamy without the chunks of ice normally found in below par establishments. This is a must go to... More
