Maybe because it is not in the city centre the quality is higher and the price is lower. Well worth visit. Could do with space to sit and eat.

They serve good gelato and it is really well priced. They are also friendly which some others sure are not. For two or two fifty you can gey a nice amount with a good selection. Ate there four times this trip

We went to all the leading gelaterias in Florence, and this is the best of them. Big selection of flavors (including a fabulous chocolate mousee) and they will sell you a one-euro portion. If you are an ice-cream connoisseur, don't miss it.

Lots of choice for flavours. Fruity ones have pieces of fruit in them and cookies one was divine! Be prepared to queue, but definitely worth the wait. Friendly service. Very good value for money.

I tried a little trick in Italy: Ordering things I don’t usually like and seeing how good they taste here. So when we arrived at Gelateria La Carraia, I went straight for the mint chocolate ice cream (or “After Eight,” as it’s called here.) Mint...More

WOW. We discovered this place on a walk around in Oltrarno just across the river from the main part of Florence. It is the business of two brothers who just wanted to make the best gelato and....they have done it. As someone else said, the...More

Visited her a few times as the gelato is great and the price is even better. They have cones or cups from €2 up to €6. Don't feel obliged to the €6 cone if you want lots as we got the €3 one and go...More

We had the most delicious tasting ice cream in cups. Pistachio was so creamy. Many choices of flavors. Coffee was good too. Meant to enjoy as take-away as there's not many chairs inside.

When you are a family of 6 it matters if a gelateria like this offers 1 euro cones... the final bill is simply reasonable. The pistachio was wonderful and the mousse au chocolat... and the after eight... and the strawberry ...and the chocolate. It is...More

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

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
