A range of delicious home made ice creams awaits you here - no need to walk the street eating them just go through to the courtyard garden to sit, relax and enjoy

Step into this small shop and peruse the day's selection of creamy, delicious gelatos and icy granitas. Next is a coffee bar and then through a little sitting room which would be perfect on a rainy day and into a shady, beautiful garden. At one of the 'best' gelaterias we had overly sweet gelato with a few icy chunks while... More

I went here couple of times and the coffee was great. The garden in the back is very nice and the service is excellent.

I went there couple of times and I was impressed. The garden is very beautiful and you can see how careful it is taken cared. The coffee is very good and tea as well. This place remained in my soul.

I went to Leonardo Gelateria-Caffe in July when I was visiting Florence with some friends for the weekend. The cafe was just around the corner from where we were staying. We experienced wonderful service, delicious gelato which we enjoyed in the beautiful hidden garden. I would really recommend at last one trip to Leonardo Gelateria whilst visiting Florence.

This place was across from our hotel and we visited it a couple of times. Great unique flavors (sesame and chocolate coconut, etc) at a decent price. The service was really great as well and there was a garden in the back which was an added plus!

Being a hardcore fan of Ice cream, I couldn't resist myself in having these gelatos during my Italy trip. Geloto/Ice cream shops will be found on every corner in florence (in general in italy). I had gelato in few places before this and had both better and worst experience. Finally, on the day we were about to leave we came... More

I went here almost every day when studying abroad because I lived next door! The garden is such a cute place to sit in and enjoy a cappuccino, pastry, or gelato. My roommates and I really enjoyed their gelato especially because you can get two flavors in a small (many places are strict about their one flavor to a small... More

My partner and I discovered a hidden gem in Florence, Italy. We had gelato every evening for dessert over the 4 nights we spent in Florence. The gelato is organic and home-made and you can enjoy it in their courtyard garden, a lovely oasis of flowers and plants. They also have a child-friendly area for fun times. The staff were... More
