So yummmm! They satisfied my endless search for the best stracciatella!!! Don't bother waiting in the crazy line of the #1 Gelateria in San Gimignano! So not worth it!

Awesome, creamy gelato in Florence. Typical small gelato store but they have the best gelato for sure. It's a creamier Gelato than I have ever had and lots of flavors. Not pricey either. Great value too.

I wasn’t tempted by gelato really - until I had the pistachio gelato here. Let me tell you, it is made with Sicilian pistachios, and it tastes like the silky-smoothest, most delicious dessert you’ll ever eat. Did I mention it was the best? It really...More

I visited La Carraia in June 2017. Do not let the line discourage you - it moves fast and it's worth the wait. If you are anywhere in the area, do not pass by here without getting a scoop, or two, or three! bb

The best gelato we have had in Italy so far. Extremely smooth, flavoursome, and good value for money (3 flavours for 2.5EUR). I recommend the ricotta and pear flavour, as well as the pistachio. YUM.

We bought a small gelatto as a special treat, as we were in the middle of winter. It was so good that we ended up buying two more, in different flavours.

They say that Italians have the best gelato and when you come to a place like the Gelateria La Carraia it might just prove to be true. The flavours are somewhat unique and they taste beyond great. Definetely a place to go when in Florence,...More

I got the yogurt flavored Gelato. It was good. My sister got the lemon Gelato. It was so good that we got a second cup of it. It was reasonably priced.

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
