Great ice cream!

Superb ice cream along the banks of the Arno.As most people do whilst in Italy, we ate lots of ice cream, undoubtably this was the best we had whilst in Florence.

We went to this gelateria on a monday evening because of all the goods comment. We asked for vanilla and she gave us a sorbet with a taste of melon (cream of milk), and when we wanted to know what is it, the Women was not nice at all !! I took straciatella taste, the vanilla was very liquid and... More

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
