The best gelato we had in Italy!! In shop made Gelato for only Euro1.2. The friendly serving staff upon asked where they made their gelato took us to the back of the shop and explained to us how the various Gelato and Sorbet were made.
Very tasty and informative visit...

This place has the most delicious, creamy custard-based gelato in Firenze. We must have stopped here twice a day during our trip. And the prices were about 33% less than most other gelaterias, which is helpful because you'll want to try a couple of different flavors!

We walked pass this gelato shop by chance and saw an old italian guy was eating it and he said 'best gelato in florence ' so we turned back and bought 2 scoops each for me and my friend. I had hazelnut and limone. And it is the BEST gelato i've ever had!!!!! My friend had strawberry and mango and now we just dream about it every day !

It's worth it to seek out quality gelato places off the main streets. The prices are often more reasonable & the quality MUCH higher. This small charming gelateria has wonderful flavors (we tried Watermelon here for the first time, along with Creme, Strawberry & Strachiatella), friendly staff & a couple of benches outside where you can sit & enjoy your gelato if you aren't in the mood to walk with it. Our son, now a Strachiatella expert, gave Antica Gelateria Florentina his highest rating - an "A". Enjoy.
