Building works in the surrounding square during our visit made it slightly more difficult to find. Great gelato with some interesting flavours - had a mint and ginger option. Standard prices. Worth a visit.

We all loved our gelato flavors from Cantina del Gelato. We stumbled upon this gem on our walk towards the Hotel David on the other side of the Ponte Vecchio. I had a gelato with tumeric in it. Would have gone back but we ran out of days. Highly recommend!

Found this gelato bar via trip advisor search when we were near the Ponte Vecchio & it was easy enough to find (with the help of google maps). It is a cute shop, friendly staff, reasonably priced with delicious gelato! Too many flavours to choose from, we'll have to return, one day.....

Really small gelato shop and I remembered coming here a few years back. Been to a few gelato places since we arrived and this is definitely the best! Interesting choices and tasted great! I had turmeric and fig plus yogurt with honey and nuts. Both really good. My husband got chocolate and it's just awesome! Go and have a gelato... More

The best ice cream we had: the best ingredients, not too sweet ice cream. The only one we go back to Price is average, location : quite easy to find, good selection. And for Acai lover too. You should try it! You won't be disappointed!

I've bought ice cream in many gelaterias at Florence, this one is not on the crowded roads but still near Ponte Vecchio, the staff is so friendly and the ice cream is so delicious

We tried several different gelato-places in Florence and this was our favorite. We came back here several times. It is a modest place, relatively easy to miss and you can't see the gelato like in many other places. But it is definitely worth trying it! Tastes so good and much cheaper than the places closer by Duomo. The staff were... More

Wonderful.and good value gellato. I had ginger/mint/pineapple which was tasty if unusual. There are regular flavours too. Obviously made on site. Also sells crepes both sweet and savoury. Well worth a visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
