I'm picky and I think this is one of the best places for gelato in Florence. Everything is made on site and very fresh. Central location makes it hard to resist!

I’ve had gelato 2-3 times a day since I’ve been in Italy (seriously) and this is the first time I felt ripped off. I paid 2.5€ for basically a bite-size serving that took 2 minutes to eat. Maybe I didn’t understand the ordering system but...that hasn’t been a problem at every other place I went to. Also, the gelato was much thicker than everywhere else I’ve been - basically like ice cream. It was good, but probably not the best in town.More

Great little Gelateria in the heart of Florence. Tasty assortment of flavors. Lavender is a must try - very flavorful and it is different than other flavors you usually see. Friendly staff as well. Lots of flavor choices. Many size of cup options too. Definitely...worthy of being listed as one of the best gelato’s in Florence!More

We went to this place during the evening and enjoyed the fantastic lavender gelato. We went back the next day, and the owner pretended that the credit card machine was not working to force us to pay in cash. It was such a blatant lie...that I left feeling very disappointed. I had to ask for money from a friend. They don’t like to use a credit card when Is a small amount like 5 euros. It created a very uncomfortable situation.More

Loved it. Great flavor selection with some traditional choices (vanilla, chocolate) and some more unique, adventurous options (milk & honey with sesame seeds). I had two flavors in a cup: coffee and milk & honey with sesame seeds and enjoyed every second of it. There...wasn't a line when we were there (right before close). Friendly service at the walk-up counter and a great location just off the main road between il Duomo and Palazzo della Signoria. Worth every euro, and calorie.More

by far the best ice cream shop in Florence. one of the oldest ice cream parlors in Florence. Here you will find all tastes from the most classic to the most modern.

This place has a variety of delicious vegan gelato flavors! The vegan chocolate and banana flavors are exceptional. You can tell it’s one of the best gelato places in Firenze by the line of people waiting down the street to buy gelato here! Don’t worry-...the line moves fast.More

I know this is gelatto and not regular icecream, but i include all that we have ever tasted and ensure this has been the greatest of all time, even the simplest flavors as vanilla and strawberry are delicious, we loved the stracciatella flavor, delicious.

The ice cream is fantastic and the Gelateria offers a wide ranges of traditional and non-traditional flavors. Very yummy. We came back a couple of times and were never disappointed. Try the salted caramel or fior di latte with honey and sesame.

On our first night in Florence, wandering the streets, we walked into Perche no! knowing we had to try Italian Gelato. We were not disappointed! Walking the streets at night with a cone of chocolate gelato is something I won't forget in a long time!...The gelato was amazing!! Definitely among the best in Florence!More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Yes we do! We have some flavors made with soy milk, like vanilla, hazelnut, chocolate etc. We have also many flavors made with water, with no dairy, like ALL the fruit flavors and chocolate.

I do not know for sure about soy gelato, but I recall that they had a number of vegan gelato flavors on display in the front.
