A few bites and you realise that the quality of the srobet here is just superior. Try the Ricotta di Bufala and also the Lemon/Sage. Fresh and delicate.

Firenze known for its many ice cream boutiques. We read the recommendations about this gelateria so we went to find it. The gelateria is located not in the city center but not very far. The ice cream was good but I have ate much better ice-cream in Firenze.

We just arrived in Florence and the first thing we did was find this gelato. We are close, so it was easy. We tried 4 flavors. The chocolate with hazelnut, the lemon sage, the peach and the florentine cream. All of them were amazing. The Floretine cream may be the best gelato/ice cream I've ever had anywhere in my life....

With all the gelato places in Florence, this definitely makes the top of the list (in the top three on my list personally!). Well worth the hike away from the tourist center and (and tourist gelato). Delicious and creamy flavors with friendly staff. Wish we had access to this all the time!

I have never in my life tried ice cream like this! I don't know how they make it and what they put inside, but it tastes simply wonderful! (: my choice: dark chocolate and salty caramel.

This was the best ice cream that i've tried. The salted caramel flavour was amazing. Prices a bit lower than in the center.
