We had caffe and clementine gelato after coming down from Michelangelo’s Hill. After a few gelaterias in Florence, this was by far the best! Don’t miss it, even if it’s the only reason you cross the Arno.

So good. Visited twice a day. Open noon until just shy of midnight. My testing flavor at all gelato stores is the yogurt gelato...simple, light, flavorful if real and good yogurt is used, tangy and definitely not to sweet. This place is the real thing....none...More
