“Oh my God!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Had to walk all the way from Pizza San Marco to the Carraia bridge because of an incorrect location on Trip Advisor. It was well worth walking the extra mile. I tried 4 flavours, and all of them were excelent. Maybe the one I liked the most was "ricotta e pera".
We had the 2? cup, which should be enough for most people.
Definetely, worth the visit.

“Extremely good ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

All the flavours, all the taste! Get down there. It is one bridge away from ponte vecchio on the south side (downstream). We've tried lots of ice cream - this was magnificent!

“Crowded Ice-cream shop near Ponte vecchio”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Cherry and chocolate cookies flavour in cone for just 1.50 euros (not bad) for a creamy and smooth texture gelato. Too much cream means too much fats.

“The best ice cream in the right value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Maybe the best ice cream we had during our vacations in Florence and Venice. Not only it was fresh and with a big variety of flavors, it was in the best price as well. And not only that, it was served in generous portions unlike many other gelaterias in Florence & Venice. It is highly recommended, although it is 10-15 minutes walk from Piazza La Repubblica and might has a queue (the service was fast we had to wait only 5 minutes) it is really good & worth a try.

“Best Gelato in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

While it might be out of the way, it is definitely worth it. It is some of the most inexpensive gelato we had, but also the best gelato we had.
