Loved this gelato. Very fresh, authentic. A must stop on your trip. The coffee and chocolate flavors are a great combo.

Visited this local dessert shop whilst on a food tour in Florence, and was truly impressed with their quality! House made gelato and sorbets, all tasting fresh and delicious, with their authentic and natural production also indicated by the lack of mountain-high appearance (a tourist...More

This is just a small shop where you can buy chocolate and you can also have cold drinking chocolate (in summer) and hot chocolate (in winter) and delicious ice-creams. The drinking chocolate was to die for (the one with species was good, but the one...More

Our food tour ended here. There were about a dozen flavors of gelato available that day. It was delicious. It is a cozy place to buy chocolate. Not the cheapest place. Outdoor seating. Worth stopping by if you are passing by.

As Henry Ford would have claimed you could have the T in any colour as long as it's black, Vestri has all flavours as long as it's chocolate. Vestri has no gelato, little sorbets but rich, creamy if not heavy variations on chocolate icecream and...More

We really enjoyed our ice creams here! I dropped 1 in the rating because we are living near San Gimignano (where Dondoli's is!) I would return when in Florence!

Came here on a food tour and sampled two flavors. (small size but a perfect amount). The gianduja is lovely but is a dark choc base. We also tried 4-5 varieties of chocolate, all were amazing especially the three layered (coffee flavor) and almond pieces...More

This is the best place for a dessert in Florence and probably in Italy as well! The gelato is excellent but ... oh boy .. you should try the chocolate. It is far beyond perfect. I have no words to explain how good it was....More

Classic gelato - subtle flavours and not full of sugar and fat. gelato is kept in the freezer below the counter in small stainless steel buckets. They only make enough for one day so you know it's fresh. This is the traditional gelato method which...More

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
