“Rip off be warned!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Having enjoyed many gelatis across Italy, we made the fatal mistake of stopping at this bar. We requested one scoop of gelati and like a previous reviewer were stung 8€ a cone! The cone may have been impressive but the quality of the gelati was appalling as was the bitter after taste after coughing up 32€. Shame on you 'very good' who was in fact VERY BAD.

“Yum!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

right across the square from the Santa Maria Novella was the best gelato place. We tried so many of them but always came back to the one by our hotel.

“Absolute rip off”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We stopped at this ice cream shop and asked for a cone with 1 scoop and were also given a small waffle thing added on top and then charged 8 euros what a disgrace, We found anywhere near the Duomo was a chance for the shops to rip you off like a small bottle of water at 2.50 euros and then away from this area it was 70 cents for the same bottle, Florence was beautiful but sadly we felt like hunted prey when it came to shops, except for the market place which we had the most delicious beef and salsa verde roll we have ever tasted, great place to have a browse round.

“Ice Cream, Ice Cream and more Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Florence is full of Ice Cream parlours, but this one takes some beating. Tiny shop, but packed with every conceivable flavour, and very good value at 3 Euros for a small cardboard dish with a quarter of a waffle chucked in gratis!

“The best gelato in town”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Not only was the quality of the gelato excellent, but the selection was the best in Florence. The prices were great as were the size of the portions. It was conveniently close to our hotel also. The staff were very friendly.
