We found Carapina by chance - it was the first gelateria we saw after parking in Florence. Good luck! Personal and owner were extremely friendly and made us feel home. The icecream was delicious: we tasted pistacchio, nocciola, fiordilatte and red grape. Fresh, perfect texture...More

All through our Italy visit we ate gelato almost everyday. It's all just a bit different but all amazing. I love that the dish sizes are small or we would have gained an amazing amount of weight but the quality was excellent and taste delicious.

Went in to check out the gelato flavours and wanted to come back the next day to have a scoop but as we stepped out of the store the owner gave us a stink eye and said ‘Fxxx You’. The waiter also laughed at us.

One of the best ice cream places in Florence. No doubt. I go regularly and whenever people visit from out of florence i take them. The mandarino, menta and stracciatella are absolute top notch! Sure place ... open more locations please!

Carapina was right around the corner from our hotel and we read that it was the #2 gelato in Florence. So, we took a walk and tried. It was delicious!! The menu changes according to what is in season but the fruit gelatos were like...More
