“Good not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

I really love icecream and gad some at least once a day during the trip in italy. Icecream in firenze is not as good as other tiscany towns, but this grlateria was good ( not great).
A big plus is that they are not expensive even rhough they are right near the famous bridge

“Freezer-burnt...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

We sampled lots of gelato in Florence and throughout Italy, and were sadly disappointed in this place. The flavors were average at best (a little bland compared to the better places) and unfortunately several of them were freezer burnt.
This seems to be a popular Gelateria (we went here based on a recommendation from Rick Steve's guide book) and the location, right by Ponte Vecchio, could be why.

“Best gelato in Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

On my trip I have tried a few different places. This is by far the best; great view of the ponte vecchio and a great wait staff. I highly recommend a combo of the stracciatella and the peanut butter.

“Great view, tasteful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We sat for coffee on a short break from wandering the streets. This little cafe has excellent view at Ponte Vecchio and the smell from freshly baked goodies is irresistible. Very nice coffee and friendly staff. Also, very clean. One more good memory from this magnificent city!

“2 gelatos in 10 mins!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

My wife and I moved on from the Uffizi to Ponte Vecchio when we chanced upon this Gelateria. She wanted some gelato (yeah, when it was 6 deg c) so we bought some pistachio gelato. We went on to Ponte Vecchio.

I finished 3/4 of it, walked back from the other side of the bridge and went back to get another pistachio gelato. When you know you just had 2 gelatos in 10 mins when the weather was cold, that must be some freaking gelato.

Go try it!!!
