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

This was hands down the best gelato we had while travelling throughout Italy the month of September and the best I have had anywhere. The best value too, at 1.60 for two good scoops. I guess when you open in 1934 and are still operating, you can be confident they are doing it right.

Really tasty Ice Cream and amazing milkshakes too! We stayed south of the river and this place was recommended by our hostess. Very friendly staff and I promise you that the taste won't disappoint. Reassuring that some flavours are not available as fresh ingredients are not always available. Shows a commitment to quality.

This place does nice gelato and is popular with locals. I wouldn't go out of my way to seek this place out, but pop over if you're staying nearby.
