I read about this place on a travel blog for those with celiac. I was pleased to find such delicious options: cookies, donuts, truffles, pizza, focaccia, etc. I wanted one (or more) of everything.

An absolute must visit for a gluten free family! A celiac friendly treasure trove with lovely, friendly service from the women in the store.

We had read the reviews so sought this out for lunch after a family walking tour in the morning. We couldn't have been happier with what we found. A really wide selection for everyone in the family (just pre tween to early teen children). We had tasty pizza, delicious calzone, spinach and feta pie and gluten free beer (at least for dad ...). The plain focaccia and bread to restock our supplies were also great value.

And .... a spectacular selection of gluten free dolci! Chocolate and custard croissants (we had been hunting these since we couldn't find any in Paris), profiteroles, donuts, strudel, biscuits and many, many more. We took an armload back with us for a post siesta feast!

Anyone looking for gluten free food in florence should put this pasticceria on their "must visit" list. The bakery is exclusively gluten free so celiacs need not worry about possible cross-contamination as they ponder the selection of baked goods: Chocolate croissants, cookies, donuts, spinach and cheese pie, pizza... The list goes on and on and it's all delicious!! They also have a selection of gluten free grocery items such as pasta, flour, and other packaged goods from Schar etc. The mother and daughter who run the shop are absolutely delightful! You will definitely make a return visit.

Being gluten free, we're used to the experience that you can never buy anything in a bakery. We discovered this place by accident while walking around Florence, and just had to try it. We had a couple of fancy pastries and some shortbread cookies, and they were fantastic! If you're GF and you like bakery goods, you have to try this place!

Pastries and spinach cheese pie were AMAZING! It's hard to find something that tastes this good even with gluten, not to mention gluten-free! We grabbed some tea across the street to have with our pastries. This place is truly outstanding.
