High quality

The lemon and sage is the best I've ever had. Dark chocolate is unbelievable. The service staff are very helpful with translating the italian flavour to English. It is located in oltrarno area.

I am currently tucking into a take-away tub of their 70% dark chocolate gelato, and their gorgeous peach flavour (with fine pieces of fresh peach through it). The gelato here is always seasonal, heavenly, and the perfect indulgence. So well made that I rarely need more than a small cup to satisfy me, and located right next to the park... More

I think the tripadvisor map is wrong? I remember it being on the other side of Tasso. In any event this is the best ice cream by far in Florence. The owners family have been involved in the business. I had chocolate the first visit was awesome! I went back fully intending to try something different so I had exactly... More

Honestly, we ate so much gelato during our two-week trip throughout Italy that I could not begin to rank each place in any meaningful way. However, I can say that the lemon-sage flavour here stands out in my mind as one of the most delicious and unique ones that I sampled during our trip. I found a lot of the... More

This quaint, small place is in a very residential neighbourhood. The fifteen minute walk is well worth it as everything from the cone to the intensity to the texture is superb. The best flavours at this artisan were the salted caramel, dark chocolate and lemon-sage. Very local and very good.

The best! We tried 3 other places in Florence all highly ranked but this one was recommend by a local who really likes gelato and they were right! Soo much better than the other places. Worth walking to and good price, not like the tourist prices.

This little place doesn't attract much attention, but it should. The gelato is amazing, and there are lots of unique flavors. Like lemon sage...or rosemary pear...traditional ones too. I've eaten gelato all over Europe, but this one is the best!

A little out of the way place (but not too far at all from the Ponte Veccio) is this wonderful shop with truly great gelato. Had the stracchiatella vanilla, and chocolate between the tree of us. Absolutely delicious.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
