We had lots of gelato in Florence, but this neighborhood gelateria beat them all! I always order straticietella (Spelling? Chocolate chip!), and the one from La Sorbettiera had a delicious vanilla base with plentiful dark chocolate shavings, beating out the down town gelaterias that-- while looking impressive and highly decorative--didn't have the flavor and the amount of chocolate shavings as...

If you are in the area of San Frediano be sure to head over to Piazza Tazzo for a gelato at this wonderful spot. Perfect artisanal gelato made daily with a selections of traditional creams and sorbets and also particular flavours Delicious!

A small place off the beaten path. A few outdoor seats in the shade and a park across the street. Best gelato I have had. Still thinking about the lemon and sage!

The price is fab, the gelato is insanely good. Every flavour was a winner (we went practically every night while in Firenze). We did try another gelato bar once, and it cost us 13 euro and it was no where near as good as La Sorbettiera. This gelato bar is a little off the tourist trail so if you are... More

I had the chocolate - which was absolutely delicious. Intense and dark not sweet and milky. Really grown up chocolate. John had lemon and sage ; strange combination but he loved it!

I spent 3 weeks in Florence and went there everyday to get the Cookies flavor. Wahoo I love it!! The owner of the shop is so kind and so sweet to me. His gelato is so creamy and light and just delicious. Nothing I have ever tried before. It's not anything like the crap you get near the duomo. So... More

This gelateria is not near the tourist center but we walked anyway (about 20 minutes from palazzo pitti) and it was so worth it! One of the best gelatos in Florence without question, great flavours and everything is artisanal and home made. And it´s even cheaper than other gelaterias! it is a must!

We recently finished a tour of lake como, tuscany, and venice and la sorbettiera was one of the best gelatos we had on the trip. We ate a bunch of gelato, trying one or two places everyday. This was one of the only places that was so good we had to return for a second visit. It is conveniently located... More

Thank you, Tripadvisor and its contributors, for leading me to this place. The taste and quality was superb and i enjoyed peanut and lemon sage flavours as well as peaceful atmoshpere around. I recommend this place to everyone who wants to taste the art of gelato :-)
