The best ice cream in the world. Really nice place with a very gentle owner, and amazing ice creams (specially pistachio) and sweets. A must go in Florence.

We went because of raving reviews, but I must say it's not worth a detour. We were in the area and the ice cream is definitely good, but that's it.

Leonardo's is an amazing gelateria. The owner and the maker of the gelato, Francesco is very delightful and generous with tasters. He makes all his gelato once a week with all natural and very few ingredients. It tastes so fresh and the flavors are rich...More

From the 5 or 6 gelateria we tried in Florence, this was definitely the best one with the freshest ingredients. The owner even gave us some samples, since we couldn't decide on the flavors. Highly recommended.
