I have never in my life tried ice cream like this! I don't know how they make it and what they put inside, but it tastes simply wonderful! (: my choice: dark chocolate and salty caramel.

Lovely ice cream, good selection of flavours and would definitely recommend it, but not the best ice cream I've ever eaten!

This was the best ice cream that i've tried. The salted caramel flavour was amazing. Prices a bit lower than in the center.

Wow, wow and wow! I'm not often at a loss for words, but this place is fantastic! We were staying in the same square as this place, and visited once a day for each day we stayed - there didn't seem much point going anywhere else. It's a tiny kiosk, off the beaten tourist track, with a couple of wooden... More

This gelateria is incredible! It is the real thing, and you will find chunks of the real flavor inside (pieces of peach skin in the peach, mint pieces in the mint...). The salted caramel is the best I've ever had! I enjoyed this place so much I came back 3 different times ☺️. Highly recommended!

Run, don't walk to this gem of a gelateria! I had lemon with sage, peach and pear. All three flavors where incredible! You can tell they use real fruit. My kids had straciatella and at the end where licking their fingers.

This place is off the beaten path just a little - frequented by local Italians not tourists. We especially loved (1) lemon and basil, (2) fresh mint with mint leaves, (3) crema, and (4) lime. We ended up returning several times. Everything tasted new and different with the potency of flavor for which Italian gelato is renowned.

Best gelato we had in Italy. Right on the Piazza Tasso, next to a BBQ restaurant (I'm not kidding). The lemon and basil (a nice tangy experience) was exceptional but we also loved the honey ginger (more creamy). Bring your dictionary though as the flavours were just listed in Italian. Will definitely be back.

Some of the best gelato we had during our 2+ weeks in Italy! On a piazza in the Oltrarno neighborhood, this place is mostly frequented by the locals. You certainly won't find a lot of English spoken here.
