My family likes ice cream and we have tried many places around the globe. Italian gelato is definitely the best and this modest place in downtown Florence is hands down the winner. The owner is really friendly too!

The title sums it up. It is gelato and it is delicious. Generous portions and a fair price. If you are in the neighborhood, you should stop by and enjoy a treat. We did.

This place is amazing. This is the creamiest, most delicious handmade recipes for gelato. We spent two weeks in Italy eating gelato everyday and came back to this place in Florence just to have one more of his amazing gelato before we left. The flavours are all real fruit and cream or milk depending on his recipe. The worlds greatest... More

Although it was helpful to offer taster spoons before ordering, it was begrudgingly served, where we felt an inconvenience to her empty ice cream parlour - no customers and no queues!! The mint chic chip was way too sickly sweet.

The cleanest gelato and at a great price! The owner is friendly!! There is a variety of unique flavors and seating outside! Ignore the other high prices places.
