I tried other gelato places in Florence and so far this is the best in town. The portion is huge. Suggest getting three scopes to try three different flavors. I had the cream, tiramisu, and mixed-fruit tart. All great. A little away from the center,...More

This place was very easy to find and right by one of the bridges so you can take and enjoy by the river. Gelato was high quality and had very large serving sizes. You definitely get your money's worth!

Great range of flavours (we tried just ricotta & pear, eggnog, milk, creme caramel, coffee, lemon, choc/orange, passion fruit) and ALL were perfect: creamy, generous portions (in a single cone only €1 per flavour!!) We went here after seeing Pitti Palace & so glad we...More

Great Mint Chip (After Eight). Nice excuse to cross the Arno to the quieter side of Florence. Service is quick so don't give up when you see the line.

How happy was my husband to have a well-rated gelateria right up the street from our apartment! They opened in 1990 and have been serving quality gelato ever since. My husband went every day that we were in Florence - it was that good. You...More

Spent 2 weeks in Italy, ate gelato every day and this was easily the best gelato in Florence! Very friendly staff and delicious flavors. Wish I could go back right now.

Lovely small gelateria on the south side of the river next to the bridge by the same name. It's distinctive for its big green side outside and is quite historic. The flavours are quite typical but they also have some to cater to tourists like...More

The flavors and textures are so spot on. Great gelato and even vegan options. Will be coming here again a few times one his trip!

Visited La Carraia twice on our trip to Florence. I'd suggest getting the smallest sizes and trying a few flavors. Or a small/medium size and two flavors in a cup. Stand-outs were ricotta & pear, salted peanuts, milk. Hazelnut was yummy too. Melone, pistachio, white...More

This was our favorite gelateria in Florence. Excellent gelato, wide choice of delicious flavours and very reasonable prices with great service. The lemon, pistachio and after-eight flavours were to die for. 2.50 euro for a 2 flavour cone and if you get the single scoop...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
