The title says it all. Some great tastes, especially the chocolate brownie. Queues move very quickly. Definitely worth seeking out

On our first night in town, a local told us this was his #1 gelato spot. I can see why. Wonderful flavors! Loved being slightly removed from crowds.

Even though the ice cream was great, the service is definetly the WORST in italy. The girls were rude and they seem to not like their job

There are lots of gelateria in Florence, and La Carraia stacks up with the best of them. A little the main tourist area, but worth tracking down. The queues were out of the door.

So many people, but worth the wait! We’ll return, trust the local reviews, TripAdvisor failed us on gelato ratings in Florence...

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
