I shall pass on the best tip someone gave me about ice cream in Florence: good, fresh, daily made ice cream doesn't get piled up in tubs, paraded in windows in lurid colours but is kept cool in covered circular pots to keep it from melting. You need to go in and find out what they have made that day and what's left.
We spent a long time searching out these types of artisan gelateria in Florence and found only a handful but this one was best, largely because of its pretty wide choice (considering they are made fresh each day there isn't usually much choice) and of course the flavour. It's a small grab and go ice cream shop but worth it.
I had dark chocolate, chilli chocolate and fresh mint vanilla scoops in a cone for 2.5 euro. Of course it was piled high and a rush to eat before it melted but incredible flavours of quality ingredients. The fresh mint in the vanilla was truly stunning and refreshing in the heat. The chilli chocolate really got you in the back of your throat but was a great combination of sweet and fiery and cold! A good one for anyone who likes combos like salted chocolate/caramel etc.
The boyfriend had coffee, honeycomb and strawberry. The coffee flavour was exceptional.
We picked from what was on offer that day. Please seek it out and see what real ice cream should be like. Enjoy!
