Description: A stone's throw from the Ponte Vecchio, this gelateria opened up 1 month ago serves the perfect mint ice cream. The fior de panna (cream) and fresh mint leaves is nothing like your standard neon green industrial strength flavored mint ice creams. We went back (and again) to taste this hand crafted sublime delight.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

All 9 of us agreed the gelato here was outstanding. The nocciola was full of real nuts. The mint was white with flecks of fresh mint leaves. The kiwi tasted so fresh. Truly a spot that clarifies the difference between all the tourist shops with colored gelatos and a true artisanal producer.

“Yes yes yes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Had our second serving of gelato there after dinner at the 4 Leoni trattoria in front. My wife and kids went for a third serving while I kicked back with a macchiato then a spritz at the cafe in front. Came back two days after during the break at la Bohème to cool off and keep the kids boosted for a late evening. Not easy going to the opera when you are 3 and 6.

Great flavors. We tried yogourt (good), peach (good), kiwi ( very good) and chocolate with orange (excellent). Best gelato in Italy.

“Best nocciola in Florence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We tried a lot of gelaterias during our week-long vacation in Florence, but the nocciola (hazelnut) at Gelateria della Passera was hands down the best we had!

This was about 15 steps from our front door. Seemed like they were always open, I think until 1:00 am....very good gelato, try it!
