After a delicious lunch at Zeb across the street, we decided to try this spot based on other TripAdvisor recommendations. Delicious gelato AND the cannoli was fantastic as well. Great, local spot.

We had caffe and clementine gelato after coming down from Michelangelo’s Hill. After a few gelaterias in Florence, this was by far the best! Don’t miss it, even if it’s the only reason you cross the Arno.
