Taken here as part of a food tour to taste authentic gelato which we were told does not contain lots of chemical preservatives. The member of staff serving us was friendly and patient with a good command of English. We chose the pistachio and ambrosia. The taste was lovely and not like any ice cream in the UK.

This gelato shop was recommended to me but the owner of the place where I just had dinner. To my surprise, it was unbelievably delicious. I ordered a 3 scoop combination of pistachio, hazelnut and their original Florentine crema. Try this gelato shop, you'll definitely won't regret it.

I was fooled for the first time by Trip Advisor. I'm a huge fan and they always lead me well… But not gelato in Florence. I tried Marco's and it was just OK. A guide who is a local took us to this place. It was 10 times better than any other place i tried since I've been here this... More

I came here because it's right around the corner from my apartment and now it's a bad habit. This place is one of my favorite in all of Florence! A lot of flavors, all made in-house, and they all taste great! Plus good pricing, unlike other gelateria's in town that have a tourist markup and don't even make the gelato... More

We visited the Duomo on Sept 2015, had lunch nearby and then we headed home and this place was on the way. We gave it a try and it's a cute cozy little gelateria on a narrow street with few seating outside. Ice cream is really nice. Everyone was friendly, we ordered a coffee for my mom from the restaurant... More

Avoid the prices and the crowds around the more popular piazzas and attractions. Wander down the little streets and discover where the locals get their gelato. .....like this wonderful little Shop !

I studied abroad here in Florence for two months so you bet I tried all the gelato stores and this one is hands down the best. The flavors are unique, fresh and the people very helpful and nice and the prices are just right. Highly recommend. -Hugo

This was the first gelateria I visited in Florence. It was on the way from our hotel to the Duomo and very convenient, and despite its proximity to the Duomo, it was hidden enough that there weren't many people crowding around it. You can get two flavours for a very reasonable €1.50, and I got pistachio and strataciella. The gelato... More

Beginning to think it is hard to find bad gelato!! Opted for cheesecake and pistachio....pistachio faultless, cheesecake a little dull. However with so many other flavours worth going back for seconds!!
