“Great Gelato”

Gelateria della Passera
Ranked #12 of 214 Dessert in Florence
Certificate of Excellence

Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night
Neighborhood: Pitti
Description: A stone's throw from the Ponte Vecchio, this gelateria opened up 1 month ago serves the perfect mint ice cream. The fior de panna (cream) and fresh mint leaves is nothing like your standard neon green industrial strength flavored mint ice creams. We went back (and again) to taste this hand crafted sublime delight.

This was about 15 steps from our front door. Seemed like they were always open, I think until 1:00 am....very good gelato, try it!

If you haven't downloaded the Trip Advisor City Walks app then do so. On the San Spirito walk you visit this tiny Piazza, more a crossroads than anything else. So, buy your ice cream and watch them making tomorrow's batches as you do so in this tiny shop and then sit on a bench, dribble the wonderful ice cream down your hands and feed the pigeons the bottoms of your cones. Heaven but only 4 stars, there is one better gelateria across the river!

We researched the Gelaterias we wanted to visit during our visit to Italy and had Gelato at some of the best reviewed places. This one was not one of the places on our list, we went there because it was very close to where we lived in Florence. We were in for a surprise, this is definitely the best Gelato we had not just in Florence but in Italy. The Gelato tastes fresh and full of flavor. All the flavors we tried were great, the Mint and 7 spice did stand out. A MUST go when in Florence.

You know it's a good place when the gelato is covered. Don't be shy to ask for samples or questions about flavors- staff is super friendly and inviting. Small cone is only 1.50Euro and comes with 2 flavors- perfect! Pistachio, crema, crema di 7 profumi- can't go wrong with these flavors, people! Go to Gelateria della Passera and you will not be disappointed.

What's wrong? A reasonably priced ice cream in Italy. For €1.50 I had a two fabulous and subtle flavoured scoops in a cone. This is no lightweight and is not scooped from highly coloured piles in the shop window. One more score for the Oltrarno, methinks!
