We walked in and ask for 2 scoops each in a cup. They picked the largest cup and packed them full. Charged us €20!!! Costs more than many of our meals. Someone needs to stand outside that shop and warn people about the ripoff!!

In one night, I walked around the downtown of Firenze and going down the street to the hill Michallengelo. On the way to Ponte Vecchio, the gelateria is located on the right side. I just felt a pity about my last night in Firenze and wanted to make some better mood with my wife. So, I went in any gelateria and the gelateria was this shop.

First time, I request the clerk behind the bar smallest size. And I absolutely believe she didn't misunderstand what I said. And I chose one of gelato and she began to cram 4 scoop of gelato into the cone. I thought It would cost me around 3~4 Euro. but The price she asked me was 8 Euro.. It was my most terrible memory in Firenze and Italy. The shop should go bankrupt or at least everybody who read this mention never get scammed by the shop.

Ice cream was some of the best we have ever had in our one year in Italy. But beware - we wanted a cone with one small scoop 2.50 euro not too bad given its location. We were given a medium size cone called Grande and perhaps the equivalent of two scoops each. Then charged 32 euro! Really - nearly $40 USD for 4 ice cream cones. I agree with all the other reviews to the right this place is a rip off.
