My family likes ice cream and we have tried many places around the globe. Italian gelato is definitely the best and this modest place in downtown Florence is hands down the winner. The owner is really friendly too!

The title sums it up. It is gelato and it is delicious. Generous portions and a fair price. If you are in the neighborhood, you should stop by and enjoy a treat. We did.

We spent two weeks in Italy eating gelato everyday and came back to this place in Florence just to have one more of his amazing gelato before we left.

Although it was helpful to offer taster spoons before ordering, it was begrudgingly served, where we felt an inconvenience to her empty ice cream parlour - no customers and no queues!! The mint chic chip was way too sickly sweet.
