“More for less and tasty too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

Based on reviews here we walked over to La Carraia. It is a better value then many other gelato shops. Bigger cups for the price and smaller cup options if you want. The gelato was creamy and very tasty. We'll be heading back again during our next few days here in Florence.

“Cheap and DELICIOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

This should be your first stop for gelato in Florence. It is extremely cheap without any compromise on the flavor. 1 euro gets you a hefty scoop of gelato...many delicious flavors

“Best gelati we've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

Lucky enough to be staying in an apartment nearby. Tried many of their flavours - all delicious.

Located just at the southern end of Ponte Alla Carraia - not as shown on the current T/A map, but the address is correct.

Great value. May have a big queue at times, but worth the wait.

“Best Flavor: "Cookies." Still Thinking About It.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

The best gelato in Florence! And we tried a lot of places. Reasonably priced and friendly - definitely worth the walk over the Arno.
