There are plenty of places to get your gelato fix in Firenze, but this cafe/bar offers a choice of places to sit and relax while sipping your espresso or savoring your gelato. The staff are very friendly, and speak English well. Ask Ermal what his favorite flavors are, and you can't go wrong. Thanks to him, I collected an embarrassing number of those little plastic gelato spoons during my two months in Firenze! Literally located a few short feet from the Duomo, there is incredible historic beauty in every direction. This was the last place I went (even though it was the dead of winter) before I left, and it will probably be the first place I go when I return.

We sat outside and had excellent service. They had generous portions of gelato, and the coffee was excellent.

Quick stop for a tasty treat. Service was fast and price was reasonable. (2 Euros for a small gelato), located right by the Duomo and some decent local shopping.

Wow, what a great place to sit down and relax. Enjoy the view, as you're only a few meters away from the Duomo! Great cappuccinos and espressos. Excellent wait staff and very attentive. Good wine list and the beers are ice cold too. I recommend you stop by, enjoy any one of their many gelato flavored and people watch.
