Forget about all the tourist gelato north of the river Arno, piled in massive, luminous heaps in every window. The trip into Oltrarno south of the river to find this little gem is well worth it! Situated on a small piazza with a park in...More

We have been in the country for 2 weeks now and have great gelato back home. Having said that, this is easily the best we have had so far... believe the hype in the other reviews! The chocolate was silky, the salted caramel had little...More

We had this recommended by some friends and it did not disappoint. Amazing flavours, really great quality gelato. A bit off the main tourist trail but it's easy to find and well worth it.

La Sorbetteria is one of the best ice cream shops here in Florence. They offer particular tastes, and I would totally recommend getting the Salted Caramel. Always a go-to for local florentines!

If you are looking for a touristy spot with everything in English and huge servings this isn't for you. Authentic , gorgeous flavours and not too sweet. Perfect servings and you can tell quality ingredients. The best I have had here. The chocolate fondant literally...More

Delicious, creamy & full of flavour! The staff is very friendly too. Minimal outdoor seating but it's beside the Piazza Tasso where there are benches & shade. There are always locals here too which is the best review! May not have the largest selection but...More

This very small artisanal Gelateria is simply delicious. It was our favorite in Florence and one of the best in Italy. We were served by the owner and master himself. It was so cool to speak with someone who took such pride in his work....More

Escape from tourist hell and walk a little bit further than the Palazzo Pitti to this little square. You won't regret it. The gelato beats the stuff they try to sell you around Ponte Vecchio.

Went here on the suggestion of a local. Gelato was very good, staff very friendly, and willing to answer questions regarding gluten free status of the flavours (all are GF). Will be going back for sure.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

I am not sure about what you mean, sorry... All raw materials are of high quality, many of them organic. Better if you ask them what you are worried about and I guess they will answer you properly. They work professionally... More
