"Vi mostriamo come si fa" è il nostro slogan. Gelateria artigianale di lunga tradizione, produciamo giornalmente nel nostro laboratorio a vista un gelato di qualità, anche senza glutine. Il gelato alla frutta è privo di lattosio e derivati del latte, preparato prevalentemente con frutta fresca di stagione. Ogni gusto è studiato nei minimi particolari. E poi.....Frappè, frullati, semifreddi.....e tanto altro. Cono o coppetta? Specialità: Crema antica, Catrame (cioccolato fondente), cacio e pere, ricotta, caprino, pistacchio, nocciola e tanto altro!

Best in Florence

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.

This is quite off the beaten track but well worth it. Surrounded by locals eating the gelati so a good sign. I had hazelnut (to die for) and strawberry. My husband had lemon. Fab fab fab - choose from 3 sizes and from tub to cone.

We sampled many gelato spots on our recent trip to Italy. This was one of the best. A little tough to locate but definitely worth searching for.

After trying many gelato places in Milan, Parma, and Venice this ranks at the top. Basic flavors that are done to perfection. The chocolate is incredibly rich, the pear was amazing and so is the buonatella.

Off the beacon track and south of the river close to the Brancacci Chapel. Look hard or you'll miss it tucked away on the side of the square. Flavours out of this world and pipped the antica by a whisker . Must visit if you want the best gelato ever

We had gelato in cities throughout northern Italy. La Sorbettiera was the best of all! It merited a visit every night we spent in Florence.

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!
