“By far and away the best gelato you will ever try.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

When you first walk in to Gelateria de' Medici, the first thing that strikes you, apart from the chandeliers, is the enornous choice of gelati. The second thing that hits you is the sheer creativity. And the third, well it's just the best ice cream you'll ever taste. And unlike other gelaterias in the centre of town, they are very generous with their portions and not over-priced.

As well as the usual flavours they sometimes do unusual ones such as gorgonzola (which is a must-try with the pear!) They do beautiful stuffed fruits and the most amazing cakes which you can also order. If you are a chocolate fan, they have about six different types. All the ingredients are natural.

“Try the crema de' Medici!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Gelateria de Medici is in my opinion one of the best gelaterie in Florence, especially for its large assortment of rare tastes. My favourite remains crema dei Medici. Open late at night. Nice little ice-cakes to take away, good for dessert in dinners!

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Noone has written any reviews about this ice-cream shop for a while, and that's a shame because it really is worth a visit. The staff is very glamorous and extra-friendly, there is a wide choice of ice-creams and they are delicious!

“Delicious ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A large asortiment of icecreams, the gelateria is a bit outside the city center but if one feels like walking, the Fortezza da Basso is one of the stops on the way to the gelateria.
Great pistacchio, nocciola icecream!

Even though I'm not an Ice cream fond but I realize this is a good place to enjoy and appreciate a very good Ice cream.
