Located on the south side of the river. No seating so good weather is a must. A lot of choices and all I choose tasted very good.

Excellent! Must try! We love the pistachio flavour. It was affordable and easy to locate. It was great experience to eat the gelato by the river!

I can usually resist ice cream but after trying the white chocolate with pistachio sauce I simply had to go back and try the dark chocolate the next day. The dark chocolate tasted like a 90% chocolate bar but smooth and creamy in texture. This...More

When I first saw this gelaterie yesterday there was a huge line outside the door. I thought that their product must be extra special. I returned in early evening after dinner and there was no line. I shared a combination of the strawberry and mixed...More

Gelato Heaven... there must be at least 5,000 gelato places in Florence and this is one of the best.... but if you miss it there is 2-3 gelato places on every block ...

Gelato here was so great we had to go 3 times during our stay. Offers flavors from coconut and lemon to triple berry cake and tiramisu. Don't worry about a line outside the door - it moves quickly.

Small ice cream shop but so many flavours inside! Also very reasonably priced and good value for money on the amount of ice cream you get

Finished off dinner with some gelato from Carraia (not far from Trattoria Sostanza where we had an amazing dinner). My husband commented it was the best gelato he's eaten thus far on our 3-week trip in Italy. There was a line out the door when...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
