I studied abroad in Florence, Italy for an entire semester and I made sure that I had gelato at every place I visited, but there was no place that could compare to Cantina! Not only was the gelato made to perfection out of ingredients from local people of Florence, but Samio, the owner of the shop, was probably the nicest person I met in Italy all semester. He let us taste all the magnificent flavors of his gelato and would answer all of our questions we had about the gelato, growing up in Italy, and pretty much anything we could think of. Any time someone came to visit I always took them to Cantina because it is simply the best you are going to find. Words cannot express how special this gelato shop is to me and my whole experience in Italy. To anyone who is traveling to Florence stopping by Cantina del Gelato to eat the best gelato on the planet served up by the most wonderful Italian man is a definite MUST! Thank you for everything Samio, I miss you already!
