“Fantastic gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Great gelato! Got the fancy waffle cone w/chocolate, which was fresh and crispy. Very unique flavors here. I got the sicilian citrus and a flavor with olive oil, both were amazing. The gelato is not prepacked like most. The granita is also highly recommended. Very highly recommended.

“Best gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

This place has the best gelato. Very fresh and a great follow up after seeing David since it's right outside of the Accademia.

Thanks! The proximity to the David is a further incentive to do well for us :)

“A Great Gelato In Florence ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

My dad and I wandered down the streets of Firenze on the recommendation of the hotel receptionist to the Carabe . We had a fantastic gelato by friendly staff and it was so good we went back the next day. I would recommend this gelateria to anyone walking around the northern district of Firenze.

“Good Gelato near Accademia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

After visit to Statue of David, stopped by Carabe for some gelato. Surprised that it was good authentic gelato. Above average amongst all the Gelato places I visited in Florence and Rome.

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Having tried many different gelato places, we found this charming little shop in Florence, and thoroughly enjoyed the gelato! The staff was just so friendly, and offered a small cone at half the price for my toddler son. It is certainly better than the many other gelato places in Florence, and this place is certainly one of our favourites in Florence.
