The ice cream is ok but the staff was rude and not welcoming when they found out we're foreign, she gave rude blunt responses and was very sarcastic. She also served Italian customers behind us whilst we were ordering.

A nice small shop where you can buy super delicious icecream. The shop was placed close to a bit traffic road, but also very close to the river, where you could enjoy the icecream. I would go there again!

I tried several ice cream places in Florence, and this one was definitely my favourite. They have a great variety, with unusual flavours, and they were delicious - not so sweet, and perfect taste! Besides, their location is great: not in the middle of the...More
