My husband and I sampled a lot of ice creams during our recent visit to Florence - but this one was the best! Our favourites were the Bacio (chocolate and hazelnut) and the Persiano. Hand-made on the premises, they are amazing!

We stopped in for some gelato, twice! Both times they were very patient and gracious, allowing us to try several flavors. We had several different flavors and all were excellent. Highly recommend.

Stopped by this shop by accident and didn't regret it. The matcha and milk icecream was delicious and the portions are quite big. The other flavours all looked delicious :)

The high ranking for this establishment is well deserved. We tried the gelato on two occasions during our visit to Florence. Both times, it was delicious.

Wonderful little gelato place. Lots of delicious flavors and a cute little neighborhood. Try the Buontalenti – a Florentine specialty!

This gelateria is a good alternative to the famous and busy places such as Grom and Venchi if you are near by. It offers some intereting options, but perhapt doesn't match the mastery and quality of the likes of Grom.

Surprise! Have tried a lot of gelato. A lot of it good, but this place is the winner!! A great winner!! I know gelato may be small, but this has big flavor, real fruit, made on premises. Wish there was more outdoor seating.
