I have travelled all over and live in a city (Florence) that has some of the best ice cream places of Europe if not the world but "La Svolta" goes to a different level. I still don't understand why it's hidden in a hidden corner...More

Great ice creams and lots of choice. Staff were really helpful when our children just couldn't decide which flavours to choose. Worth a trip to the pretty little village for the ice cream alone!

It is incredible how the quality of this little gelateria hasn't changed over the years. Still best and still top quality!

Very good ice cream with seasonal fresh flavors. Worth a visit if you are in town. Price is right. In summer they had figs and fichi d'india tastes. Very exotic tastes.

Gorgeous, flavours of ice cream which are a bit different. The Napoleone is fantastic - honey and amaretto.
