They have special sorts, like carrot citrus or watermelon. It tastes really good and homemade. Was twice there.

This gelateria does it very different. Special icecream with chili pepper, icecream with figues, milky icecream, peachy, red apple with cinnamon and many many more. The chili pepper icecream is a challenge and the owner of the shop warns you at least 2 times that it is very, very spicy. Go there and try it yourself, it's amazing!

Great ice creams and lots of choice. Staff were really helpful when our children just couldn't decide which flavours to choose. Worth a trip to the pretty little village for the ice cream alone!

It is incredible how the quality of this little gelateria hasn't changed over the years. Still best and still top quality!

Very good ice cream with seasonal fresh flavors. Worth a visit if you are in town. Price is right. In summer they had figs and fichi d'india tastes. Very exotic tastes.

Gorgeous, flavours of ice cream which are a bit different. The Napoleone is fantastic - honey and amaretto.

There's no denying it, this is the best Gelato I've had. I spent some time in Florence seeking out the 'best' gelato places there. They were good , but nothing like my experience here. It's evident a lot of love goes into choice of ingredients (as local as possible) and the production. Don't go to Marciana Marina and miss it!!
