This is our local gelateria in San Niccolo. Since it's just a 5 minutes walk, we go there at least once a week. Elisa and Estella are two of the most friendly and kind people you will ever meet in Firenze! I am personally addicted to limone but sometime I'll splurge and go for the pistacchio. The gelato is also available to take home in larger containers (500 gm and 1 kilo). They make ice cream cakes, too! Mmmmmm! I think I'll go there now!

We happened upon Filo on our way back from visiting Piazzo Michelangelo and although it is a tiny establishment it has a small selection of superb gelato. We enjoyed Apple pie and Glacé Marrons. Don't eat or drink anything at the Piazzo Michelangelo restaurants, they are expensive and extremely disappointing.

tiny place, friendly service, only a few flavours but cant decide wich one was actually better, the fruit ones are just like eating the actual fruit, and the texture was quite special, the creams are excellent, love it, cream caramel, but capuccino was just STUNNING!!! the very best I have ever try! GO FOR IT! cant wait to go back!
