Amazing gelateria, the best we have had in our time in Florence. The lady let us try all the different flavours before choosing and I eventually went with the pear and ricotta, chocolate hazelnut and the mixed biscuit which were all immense! Wishing we could pick this place up and take it home with us!

They have an amazing assortment of hand made gelato, it's much better than the packaged stuff you get in downtown Florence so definitely worth the trip. We're thinking of coming back just for this place!

I had a gelato here and it was one of the best I have found in Florence - avoiding the ones in tourist centre.

By far, this gelateria, which serves artisanal gelato, is the best we have had in our trip. It has a great value for money, delivering big, delicious scoops for a decent price. It has an interesting array of flavors, fruit-gelato desserts, and other gelato-based desserts. We truly enjoyed its chocolate-based flavors. The staff that served us were all friendly, accommodating,... More

After diligent research and consulting a local expert, I offer my view that this is the best gelato in town, despite strong competition (such as Cantina de Gelato). The quality is outstanding, there's a wide range of flavours including some tasty inventive ones like chestnut. The service is charming. The location is a bit of a trek, on the east... More

After all day walking around beautiful Florence I stopped at Gelateria de' Medici for the best gelato I've ever had! There is no more Gorgonzola flavour (their famous so far) so I chose Mascarpone/ Ricotta e pere! Out of this world...!

Everything's pretty easy to walk to in Florence, so make it your business to stop by this gelateria for one of the best gelatis you will have ever experienced, and their gelato-filled fruit are a wonder to behold!

My husband and I are pretty picky about our gelato since we've been in Florence for 2+ years now. We're fortunate to live near Badiani (a dream of a gelateria) but when we're downtown, Gelateria de Medici is one of our favorite stops! The people who work there are delightful and willing to put up to 4 flavors in their... More

The best gelato we've had in Italy so far! It's so good. Especially their house flavour. Its a small place in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds and city center, but it is worth it.
