Right around the corner from David- we ate gelato on the way in and again on the way out! Loved the Almond gelato and granita as well!

“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Not too sweet, not too heavy. Just right. They way gelato should be. There are a few excellent gelaterias in Florence, this is one of the better ones plus has the added bonus of being in the centre and easy to find even for people who might not the so familiar with the city. After moving away from Florence I still tend to go for a Carabe gelato whenever I go visit.

“Amazing Almond (Mandorla) Granita!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

I always take my out-of-town visitors to Carabe' to try their almond granita. It is absolutely delicious, a little piece of heaven!! All of the flavors are sooo yummy, but the almond is the best. The prices are a teensy bit high, but it is worth it! Carabe' is in-between Pz. Annunziata and the Duomo, in Via Ricasoli...it can be easy to miss. Inside it is small, but with enough room for 4 to 6 people to sit...

“Dateline Gelateria Carabe, Florence - Sicilian Ambrosia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

When you have gone to this very unassuming ice cream shop and you had a scoop of their heavenly hazelnut ice cream you will understand why I call this Sicilian Ambrosia. It comes in many flavours, its creamy, not over sweet and boy is it smooth. At the end of every mouthful all your taste buds cry out more, more, more... just go and try it, inspite of the calories piling up, its worth every bit of it But, first go to Oliandolo (see my review) down the road for some honest to goodness food and then stop here for your bit of heaven and then go to the Academia or the Annunciata, or San Marco or ... Enjoy ... VGW, London
