“Good Gelato if you're in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

This place does nice gelato and is popular with locals. I wouldn't go out of my way to seek this place out, but pop over if you're staying nearby.

“finally found...the real deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

If 10 years ago - anywhere you would eat in Italy, would be amazing...now 90% of places are tourist traps. Especially if you're anywhere near the a landmark. I have once paid 30 euro for a couple of ice creams and a coffee...so to find a place where 2 scoops are 1.60....and has no english descriptions, as well as a line of local kids outside...jackpot. Try the "susina" - plum. Yum.

Small gelateria, frequented by locals and tourists. Very good ice cream with unusual flavours available.

“Salted Caramel gelato - delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were on a mission to find Salted Caramel gelato after hearing about it. After looking in vain in a lot of shops, finally found this Trip Advisor site. Do yourself a favour and walk outside of the main tourist area of Florence. It's about 10 minutes walk past Santo Spirito. The Salted Caramel in a waffle cone - yummmmmm!
