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.

My husband and I were reading the menu to the Palazzo Tempi (a great place for food by the way), and since they were closed until dinner we decided to grab some gelato from the Cantina next door. As you know, gelato is not difficult to find in Italy and most are pretty good. The guy in the Cantina was... More

The kiwi gelato was a standout. It rivals the passion fruit at Eduardo's next to the Duomo. Space out your gelato tastings with long walks. One of life's simple rewards.
