I went here this week. Gelato's were very tasty, and had a good range of flavours and nice large servings. We also ate, and the price was reasonable. Usual fayre of pizza and salads etc. Service was good. My inlaws visited every time they were in Florence as they were staying in a village nearby for a few weeks. They... More

We random passed Black Bar and stopped in front of the small Gelato store to look in, the man behind the counter gave us dirty looks, and when we asked for the prices he said something rude in Italian i'm sure and looked off elsewhere. Took our money elsewhere.

Good gelatino in the heart of Firenze, but a 'bit' overpriced for us: 4 portions ( HUGE ) was 20 eur.

This was the first place I ate at in Florence on my Italy trip. Just had a medium cup of gelato & with nothing to compare to in price or taste, didn't think it was too bad. Only now as I sit typing this with many other restaurants & gelato places visited do I realize how much of a rip-off... More

My fiancée and I have been in Italy for the past few months. Whenever we need some good food or a drink when we are out, we always stop in. The staff is amazing and helpful, even when the shop is busy. It is located next to the Duomo and is a perfect pre or post meeting spot after a... More

Some friends and I went into Black Bar for gelato, but didn't get as far as buying any because the woman behind the counter was so rude! This sour faced young woman strangely accused us of only pretending to want gelato to 'cover up' for our friend, who had gone to the toilet before buying anything. She then shouted insults... More

My wife and I are food connoisseurs. Looking for the best pizza in Italy. We may have found it. The staff was so nice. Let me taste some flavors. Had an expresso and it was enjoyable. Will be back for more.

It is a bar with a selection of food already prepared, you choose and they heat up it in a microwave. they also have cold food. A small place to relax and eat something fast. The staff was nice and smiling, we were a group of 11. The bathrooms are in the 3rd floor, not very well taking care (unfortunately),... More

Impolite staff, terrible gelato. The only good thing is the location. It is a place for tourists only.
