Tiniest shop with the most delicious gelato. Husband had 'cioccolatino' which he swore by! I couldn't go past the ricotta and fig - not to be missed!! Cantina is cash only.

We tried some unique flavours of gelato (Nutella and hazelnut as well as Buontalenti- Italian cream and vanilla ). It was worth the short walk over to the south side of the Ponte Vecchio to avoid the overpriced and crowded gelaterias near the tourist hubs. A great place to cool off on a very hot day.

We were taken here with my husband's Italian cousin who lived in the area. It was excellent. We were there in June and they had a spinning wheel for customers that can't decide what flavor to get. Delicious, not far from Ponte Vecchio on the less crowded side of the bridge (opposite from Uffizi)

Best Gelato we had in Italy. Home made, very clean and fresh. Lot's of flavors to pick from. Tasted real, no artificial flavors. Reasonably price and great location to walk to from our hotel.

Hard to find and in front of a flashy gelato shop for tourists, but this is probably the best gelato in town. Their products are fresh and yes they run out of them (luckily they get fresh batches a few times a day). With flavors like banana kiwi, yogurt honey and nuts, figs and ricotta, passion fruit, ginger pineapple mint... More

Very tasty and refreshing ice cream! I've tasted the blueberry and mint flavours. The mint flavour tastes more like lime, but it was really good :)

I took cioccolato and mirtillo gelato. Both were amazing flavours. Beautiful place with good music. Take a gelato and continue your visit in Florence.

Excellent ice cream and excellent price. The Cantina is situated 3 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio, and serves some of the best ice cream I've had. I chose a cone with chocolate and nuts, and three flavours of ice cream; the total cost amounted to e 4, which is a brilliant price given the Cantina's location. Well worth a visit,... More

Our family recommended this gelateria while we were in Florence and it was wonderful! The portions were large, the taste was great and the price was cheap! Everything you can ask for in gelato! Would definitely recommend this on your way over the Ponte Vecchio!

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
