I came here because it's right around the corner from my apartment and now it's a bad habit. This place is one of my favorite in all of Florence! A lot of flavors, all made in-house, and they all taste great! Plus good pricing, unlike other gelateria's in town that have a tourist markup and don't even make the gelato... More

We visited the Duomo on Sept 2015, had lunch nearby and then we headed home and this place was on the way. We gave it a try and it's a cute cozy little gelateria on a narrow street with few seating outside. Ice cream is really nice. Everyone was friendly, we ordered a coffee for my mom from the restaurant... More

Avoid the prices and the crowds around the more popular piazzas and attractions. Wander down the little streets and discover where the locals get their gelato. .....like this wonderful little Shop !

This was the first gelateria I visited in Florence. It was on the way from our hotel to the Duomo and very convenient, and despite its proximity to the Duomo, it was hidden enough that there weren't many people crowding around it. You can get two flavours for a very reasonable €1.50, and I got pistachio and strataciella. The gelato... More

Beginning to think it is hard to find bad gelato!! Opted for cheesecake and pistachio....pistachio faultless, cheesecake a little dull. However with so many other flavours worth going back for seconds!!

There are gelaterie all over Florence, but this small one is quite special. A great range of delicious and some unusual flavours. Not that far a stroll from the duomo.

Small, and on a side street, but of you are staying at one of the many small hotels on Via Nationale near SMN train station then this is convenient for you. Hand made gelato, just a few flavors, but excellent quality. Euro 1.50 and up...so good value. A few seats are provided inside.
