It was four in the afternoon, but when I saw the sign, I had to have their gelato, though we had a dinner reservation in three hours. The gelato was wonderful, just what you would expect from an artisan. Unfortunately, the shop was empty, probably more to do with the out-of-the-way location than the quality of the products sold. The server was very pleasant and helpful and the pricing was very reasonable for the quality of the gelato. Please go if you have a chance while in Florence. I'm not sure, but wonder if they see enough business due to their location, far from the tourist crowds. It would be a shame to see this shop close from a lack of business.

Visited this little place every evening of our five days in Florence- we absolutely loved it!!! We must have tried nearly all flavours of ice-cream, plus desserts, plus ice-lollies with our own chosen decoration, such a fun way to end each day- fantastic

Visited here as I was staying close by, and the gelato was fantastic. It was 2 Euros for a 2 scoop tub and it was a big serving. Would recommend

So good! And the vegan options are to die for! Service was friendly and fun - try a couple samples but it won’t make it any easier to decide what you want, they are all so good.
Brought on a happy dance in our picky friend!
