Best Gelato in Florence

My favorite gelato in all of Florence. Was closed when I visited Florence in January, so I had to come back again in February so that I could come here! Go across the Carraia Bridge- 2 west of the Ponte Vecchio- and it's on your right.

We had a lot of Gelato like most people while visiting Italy, this place is easily the best Gelato we had. Get the cheesecake flavour and berry, you won't be sorry!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Trekked out to this Gelateria as website said it was open. Plastic sleeve with sign on door saying it is closed until 1st FEB 2016. Pretty disappointing. The website needs updating.

Best gelato in Florence (Perche No technically has the title but....) the flavors are just superb one after the other. One location by the Ponte Carraia is a perfect spot for watching the sun set while enjoying a Nocciola gelato

Maybe I just got the wrong flavors? It's pretty difficult for me to rate any sort of ice cream below a 3, so I wont; But I'd take these 5 star reviews with a grain of salt. (or just add it to the gelato & maybe it'll taste better)

Thankfully, our palazzo was close to this Gelateria. We visited nearly every night and would often have a "pre-dinner" dessert. Lines out the door with locals is a typical occurrence and this should tell you just how good their gelato is. Their fragola (strawberry) is my favorite!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

We went to this gelataria multiple times over our short stay in Florence. Tried different flavors and all of them turned out to be quite good. This place is somewhat away from the city center but is somewhat cheaper than other gelatarias.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews we made the effort to remember this place. It was brilliant and well worth avoiding the expensive tourist places to find a superb gelateria. The shop was immaculate, the welcome genuine and the ice cream was according to my 12 year old the best 6 Euros I have ever spent! My sons had the largest... More

To be honest, we've been throughout Italy, from North to Capri island, we ate ice creams everywhere, but this one was the best! Don't miss a chance to eat the best gelato while in Florence.
