Gelato is good, but nothing special to us. But those freshly cooked cannolis are the cherry on a top. 3 euros per cannoli, but they are amazing!

Husband took away for us, we bought bigger quantity and love love love the ice cream. Some ppl mentioned it isn't creamy which we really consider its personal preference. Yes, it isn't that creamy but still so so so tasty. The owner is nice and...More

While Carabe is known for it's fruit gelato and gravitas (they import their lemons from Sicily), my husband couldn't stop talking about the artisan flavors he has (in between bites!). He had the pear and parmigiana gelato with their olive oil flavor. Apparently, they are...More

Amazing gelato. Well worth the wait in line. Try the black cherry and the pistachio together! For the soft gelato try the mousse.

This gelateria is pure deliciousness! The gelatos' are made daily with seasons products and have just the right creamyness and sweetness. During my 5 days stay in Florence I stopped there every day in late afternoon for another mind blowing experience. (Sometimes after having another...More

We had read a lot of reviews but it was such a disappointment! The icecream was full of ice that was making your head freezing! Also it was more expensive than much better spots. Don't even bother!

We were wowed by their gelato in 2015 and returned in 2017. The owners are wonderful people who are creative and hardworking mom & pop. We happened to go on the day they created a new flavor, Lambrusco, which was divine. This place is near...More

This place is owned by Sicilians who put their heart into their gelato. It feels very local and less touristy than some of the gelaterias near the Duomo. Great!

Very happy to allow us to try different flavours before buying. Eventually went for Sicilian lemon as one option and combo of hazelnut and olive oil for the second. Huge gelatos for Eur8. May go back for another tomorrow.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
