It was the best ice cream we had ever had in all Europe, we still talk about it months later. The variety of flavors, the texture of ice-cream etc. they were all perfect.

This gelateria was highly recommended by our hotel. It lived up to its reputation. The flavors were outstanding and the location on the banks of the Arno river was a real treat.

We spent 4 euros on two people (a 1.50 euro cup with two flavours and a 2.50 with three flavours) which is exceptional value. Servings were generous and flavours were good, although my daughter commented that she thought hers tasted less authentic than other places. Definitely worth a visit.

Such creamy and smooth ice cream, you have to taste it to believe it. I recommend their signature flavour: a panna cotta and chocolate chip ice cream. Good value too at 1.50 the smallest size. A must in Florence, some of the best textured ice cream I've ever tasted.

This is not only the best tasting ice cream we have ever had but also the most choice of flavours and greatest value. Forget paying €4! Just cross the Ponte Alla Carraia bridge and visit this place. I had strawberry and cheesecake (2 flavours) in a medium cornet for €2.50!!! The same size ice cream on the other side of the bridge would be €7 and not taste half as good.
