“Our favorite spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

My girlfriend and I studied in Florence this past semester. I was lucky enough to live just down the street from this wonderful gelato shop. It quickly became our favorite gelato in Florence - and trust me, we tried them all! My favorite flavors were the biscottino, dolce latte, and arachidi. And they have one euro cones. A great deal. The two workers came to recognize us after our frequent visits. I even saw one of them on the other side of town and he waved to me! I even made sure to buy an "I <3 Gelato" hat before I left.

“Best gelato in Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Try their own concoctions. Their Ambrosia flavor is to die for!

Do try fruit variants like the fragola to taste how they are able to really get the full fruit flavors.

“Best ice-cream in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Our first night in Florence and this place was just around the corner from where we were eating dinner. It had great reviews so we just had to try it and we were not disappointed. This is the BEST ice-cream in Italy.

“Good ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

I have been spoiled by the great gelaterias in Italy. This is a very good one, has a lot of choices and is worth stopping by. I just found it a bit expensive, but maybe it is because this is Florence.

“Very Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Very very good. Lots of fun flavors. I got the Cheese Cake and Biscotino which were very good. It wasn't the very best I've ever had in Italy (Fantasy Gelato in Venice was the best), but it was pretty damn good. If you stumble across it go in for sure.

I'm also not sure why people said it was expensive. My boyfriend and I each got a cone with two different flavored scoops for under €5 and then got two big soda cans for €1.50 each. Overall great price in my experience :)
