We've been trying different gelato places throughout our three weeks in Italy. This was very good, creamy gealto but not the best we've had.

We just arrived in Florence and the first thing we did was find this gelato. We are close, so it was easy. We tried 4 flavors. The chocolate with hazelnut, the lemon sage, the peach and the florentine cream. All of them were amazing. The Floretine cream may be the best gelato/ice cream I've ever had anywhere in my life....

With all the gelato places in Florence, this definitely makes the top of the list (in the top three on my list personally!). Well worth the hike away from the tourist center and (and tourist gelato). Delicious and creamy flavors with friendly staff. Wish we had access to this all the time!

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.

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
