The gelato here has to be tasted to be believed. It's hand made and the quality of the process and ingredients really show. Best of all, it's about 1/2 - 1/4 of the price of the main tourist shops!

Of the hundreds of gelato possibilities, this quality and the delicate mix of flavors is separate from the crowd. Enjoy!

Love this little gelato store! They don't do anything else, just gelato. Texture and flavors are extraordinary. We tried 15 different gelato places in Florence and Rome and this was our favorite by far! The owner was super sweet to my three children and gave them each an extra gelato cookie sandwich.

Having tried a few ice-creams around Florence this is by far the best. Silky smooth, creamy 'melt in your mouth' velvet! Not a sign of icy crystals, just pure bliss. And not to mention the burst of flavour! (and trust me, my wife is a food scientist having worked in ice cream, so we have a refined palette and exacting... More

I went to this gelateria at least 6 times during my week stay in Florence. They allow you to taste any of the flavors available. I absolutely LOVED the Nocciola flavor! It tastes similar to Nutella. This gelato is amazing. I have tried a lot of gelato and this gelateria makes the best gelato!

I truly don't think you will find better gelato in Florence. It was so delicious that we went every day and one day we went twice! We also loved the server (Kiara?) who spoke wonderful English (even if she doesn't think so) and suggested yummy flavor combos. We were so sad to leave Florence and this perfect gelato place.

We stumbled upon this little gem just off the ponte vecchio after many, many shops said they wouldn't serve our nut allergic daughter. Each gelato is in its own separate container, clearly marked with ingredients. The servers are also well-informed about cross contamination. The gelato is wonderful--creative flavours like lavender, bergamot, chocolate chili, but also the usual suspects like stracciatella,... More

Staying in Pitti

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.
