for us one of the best icecream we ever tasted. We thought we had some descent icecream in Holland and when we came to Italy at Logo di Garda we had even better but this place.... I had the dark chocolate and tiramisu and amarene end they were fantastic. The turamisu was creamy and soft and tasted magnificent. The best... More

We have been enjoying gelato all week and this was one of the best so far. Lots of different and unique flavors as well as good prices.

This ice cream was out of the ordinary - including their Espresso which also was great. Good place for families, you can sit down inside and enjoy your ice and coffee :-)

I found the gelato too soft for my taste. Nothing to specifically make a trip to. Standard gelato prices. Menu is in Italian, may need to ask the server for help but the place is rather popular.

We tried two cups of ice cream with four different flavors (fig, melon, cream, cream with orange). 5 min after eating it, my wife run to the toilette. 1 hour after so did I. Potentially the do not keep the ice creams at best conditions... Therefore, pay attention. Prefer something that really is fresh and good and crowded!

we went on a weekend and this place was very popular with the locals which was a good sign! I had a melon flavoured gelato and it was one of the best I've ever had.

We heard about this place on the PBS show "I'll have what Phil's having" so made the trek on our evening in Florence after dinner on the other side of town. IT'S SO WORTH IT. I'm no expert but IMO this is the best gelato I've ever had. So much so that I went back for seconds, and then thirds!!

I had the 'Festina Lente' if only for the name. But the combination of tastes is fantastic, with the ginger to complement it. We think the best in Florence!

It is claimed to be the oldest gelateria in the region, so we visited it. Not hard to find but not in the top center. If you go towards the Santa Croce church, there you can pass by and have a short rest. The gelato was truely wonderful
