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.

“Yes yes yes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Had our second serving of gelato there after dinner at the 4 Leoni trattoria in front. My wife and kids went for a third serving while I kicked back with a macchiato then a spritz at the cafe in front. Came back two days after during the break at la Bohème to cool off and keep the kids boosted for a late evening. Not easy going to the opera when you are 3 and 6.

“Amazing”

Great flavors. We tried yogourt (good), peach (good), kiwi ( very good) and chocolate with orange (excellent). Best gelato in Italy.

“Best nocciola in Florence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We tried a lot of gelaterias during our week-long vacation in Florence, but the nocciola (hazelnut) at Gelateria della Passera was hands down the best we had!

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!

“A moment of peace and ecstasy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

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!
