It was a hot July evening and the only thing to cool you down was a gelato - and boy did we strike gold with Riccardo's! The proprietor - Riccardo - is just lovely. Patient when the 3 of stood with our noses pressed against the glass cooler trying to decide which flavours to pick. He even gave me a free taster of the somewhat strange looking blue 'Smurf' flavour. We returned each day of our trip and even had one last cone on our way to the station when we were heading to the airport. Would highly recommend it.

I went in this little shop cause i was "attracted" from the sign outside the shop where it was written "WE SPEAK ENGLISH" and a said ... the usuall italians who wants to cheat tourists.
Inside i found the owner of the shop, Riccardo a 27 Years old guy who was working and speaking with some customers in German, then some italians and at least was my turn.
I felt like he lived next door: friendly, open minded with a little bit of knowledge of everything is happening in the US.
And the icecream was truly unbeliavable.
I was in florence and i get an icecream for 7 € and was big like an egg. Here with 2 € i get 3 flavour and a good ammount.
They had a refreshing drink called "granita" with 2 bucks for the big size.
And drinks like beers juices and some more, and everyone were the low priced in the city for the hour i was there.
There are some chairs outside and a nice "gazebo" where you can sit, enjoy what you have paid for and you will not be charged a cent !!!
And if you re lucky and want to chat about something get some directions or informations you can ask everything u want to Riccardo, such a tour guide for the city and tuscany.
I will go again for the 3 days i will stay here in montecatini, i have to eat again the "SMURF flavour" i really feel like i'm going to my favourite place to chill out a bit.
