You should try Delizia with Pistachio! Delizia is mix of pistachio which get even nicer with another scoop of pistachio gelato. One of the best ice creams I’ve ever had! Very nice staff!

Don't waste your time trying to find something better, this place is the best choice if you want to get a portion of perfect gelato. Personally, I would recommend white chocolate gelato with pistachio topping and panna cotta gelato.

The best gelato we had in our 3 week Italian adventure. When we came upon this place there was a line out the door and for good reason. Worth the wait. If they have try the white chocolate pistachio it is simply amazing.

The best gelato in Florence. Great selection of flavours, friendly service, the gelato has a superb texture and intense natural flavour. The passion fruit is excellent.

One of the best ice creams ever tasted! A lot of different flavours and the prices are also very reasonable. If you are in Florence and you like gelato this is where you should go

What delicious gelato (I’m being careful to not call it ice cream for fear of offending :D) I had a 5 euro medium fine in which you could have up to 5 scoops and flavours I had dark chocolate, pistachio and salted caramel Amazing but...I couldn’t finish it - eyes bigger then belly - hard to believe there’s an even bigger option!More

GO! Gelateria La Carria was flavorful, delicious gelato with a great range of options. After trying multiple gelato shops throughout Italy, this one was by far our favorite! The chocolate hazelnut was epic. It was like Nutella on steroids! The service was quick, so don't...be afraid of any lines. Absolutely worth any wait! Enjoy!!More

This gelateria is always crowded, first because of its great location but also because of its delicous gelato. This one was definitely one of my favorites!

This is a place with absolutely delicious gelato, I tried six different flavours and they were all amazing! Each one also had pieces of fruit/chocolate chips/whatever the flavour is inside. There is a line to wait in sometimes, but we got lucky and went there...twice and only had to wait for a couple of minutes. Definitely worth going, will return next time I'm in Florence!More

This is our sixth gelato shop on this trip to Italy (my seventh trip). I have to say, I don’t remember a better gelato spot in the last ten years. The chocolate/orange blew me away…how did they do that? Pistachio was great, as was mint...chip. Bravo!More

Delicious gelato right on the Arno. We stop by during the afternoon, but the line had about twenty people waiting. We returned in the evening and it was empty. The young lady serving was kind to let us try a few flavors. I loved the...pistacchio, always my favorite. This place serves delicious gelato.More

This place is hard to miss once you cross the Ponte alla Carraia. Buy your gelato & enjoy the view of Firenze from the other side of the Arno - it's so relaxing. Try the Fiordilatte - it was delicious!
