“Great ice cream in the "cellar"”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

We had to try it out after reading the reviews; we went there at around 4:30pm and there was no line- nice assortment of flavors. We tried pistachio. chocolate, mandorla, and nutella- all very genuine and creamy! Will go back to try some more!

“Ice cream delight!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

We made a special visit after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We recommend the cookie and cheesecake flavours! Prices were more reasonable than we were expecting. If you have a small cup then you can choose two ice cream flavours to go in it for 2 euros. You do get plenty for your money.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

This place is a little hard to find, but worth it! Their almond (mandorla), is incredible. Their lemon is just as good! My dad went back for seconds he loved it so much. I would definitely come back here to try some more flavors.

“Great ice cream”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

There are so many places where you can get gelato in Florence but this one is definitely worth a visit. It's very close to Ponte Vecchio and there is always a queue. We had mascapone and nutella flavour which seemed to be a favourite among visitors and loved it.

“The best ice cream I've tried!”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Although the gelateria is really small, they deliever magnificent ice cream. Me and a friend together tried 5 different flavors, and they all tasted as good as you wish them to. I think chocolate is delicious and my friend really recommends the yogurt.

The ice cream itself is not visible in the booth, which isn't bad at all since many of the other gelaterias tend to "brag" with colorful ice creams in their windows and then disappoint. Since we don't speak italian we were guided through the different flavors available and he even helped us "match" flavors that went well together.

It's just a few meters away from Arno, which is a perfect place to enjoy the deliciousness! A must for ice cream-lovers!
