Off beaten track, BUT WORTH IT!

I went here by a recommendation from a friend from Florence, and when I tried their gelato, I understood why. Even though it was freezing outside, this gelato warmed my heart. I tried dark chocolate(classic) and CREMA MEDICI which you must try. It was the best crema flavour I had in Italy... read more

Well, maybe it was bad luck, but to have to repeatedly vomit after this expensive boutique icecream test is unappreciated. Artisanal Icecreams have been a sore spot for centuries in Italy ( & India among other places), where health conditions & government oversight leave much to be desired, and since false labeling (of ingredients) are not sanctioned in Italy, the...

Perfect after a pizza at "Spera" just a few steps away. Not worth the trip if you're in the centre (go to Mordilatte or Grom), but a great choice if you happen to be in the area.

It's definitely one of the best gelaterias in town! Many interesting flavors, and all of them are really delicious!

We visited Florence at the end of August 2014 and went straight to Gelateria de' Medici where we had a selection of great ice cream flavours. We've used this venue on several trips to Florence over more than 25 years and have never been disappointed. The pleasant and helpful staff provide a great service and allow you to taste a... More

WOW!!!! We passed it by coincidence, situated just outside of the touristic city center and visited by lots of Italians and I understand why!!!! Best gelato I ever had, even went back in for another. Lots of flavors. Wish we had gelaterias like that in Holland... Will definitely go back whenever I am in Florence.

Absolutely love the selection of sorbet in exotic fruits. Perfect for special dinners just like the medici used to serve for the banquets!

Years ago my wife lived close-by, while studying in Firenze and she recommended to try this place. It was definitely worth the detour! I loved the consistency of the ice: just the right proportion of milk and cream. Many other places sell icecream that is way too fat and creamy, which weighs upon the taste and spoils the overall experience.... More

One of my favorite places to have Gelato. Amazing flavors and quality. Incredible cakes to take away. Out of tourist area and very authentic! Crema di Medici is not to be missed.
