You may have to wait a little, but it is worth. If you are in a hurry do not stop, you need time to enjoy and share the experience of their multiple gelato and crepes. Excellent stop during a summer night or for an after...More

We stopped here multiple times for gelato and once for chocolate. The strawberry gelato is fabulous. People in my group also liked various iterations of the chocolate, the chocolate chip and the pistachio. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because...More

Italy is famous for its gelato and Florence has many gelaterias to choose from. But the one we enjoyed most is by far Venchi ice cream. They have many different flavors and they also make good espresso. Plus, for choco-lovers they have a big variety...More

Great to look at but poor staff very unprofessional, all locals were served first dropped crepes and very slow unorganized production. The chocolate waterfall is only worth a photo, sorry but a waste of time on a day trip.

The most delicious chocolate I’ve had in Italy! Love the gelato flavors & the delicious cones dipped in chocolate and covered in nuts. My favorite is the crepe ❤️

We bought a cone with 2 smallish scoops of gelato for 3.50 euros, which seemed more expensive than elsewhere. Nevertheless, the hazelnut and chocolate flavours were quite good.

Overrated. Pricey. There are way better options for a good gelato in Venice. The store (not a cafe or restaurant, but a fancy store) looks nice. That's all. Gelatos look better than they taste. Go for a more authentic one.
