I can see why this is the number one restaurant in Florence. The nice thing is that it's a mystery to the self-deprecating owner. We read about all of the exotic and wonderful flavors in other reviews, but between two of us, tried some more conventional: chocolate and vanilla on one cone, and pistachio and "cookies" on the other. Two euros each, a bargain. The chocolate was the best I have ever tasted in my life. Kind of a lava-consistency fudge. But cold. If we ever make it back to Florence, we will NOT wait until the last day to go here.

The icecream is sitting properly in closed containers unlike the heaps of colored icecream you see in the other shops. It's a little hole in the wall on the street very close to the other side of Ponte Vecchio. So If you go to Ponte Vecchio make an effort to find this place. I could easily say it's one of the best ice creams I've had

We decided to try the Cantina after reviewing Trip advisor and we weren't disappointed at all! A wide rage of flavours which took us a while and several tasting to decide. We had Rum flavoured- very different from other gelato rum's ice cream and chocolate chip ice cream - fabulous!!!!
Person serving us was nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place.

We had to try it out after reading the reviews; we went there at around 4:30pm and there was no line- nice assortment of flavors. We tried pistachio. chocolate, mandorla, and nutella- all very genuine and creamy! Will go back to try some more!

We made a special visit after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We recommend the cookie and cheesecake flavours! Prices were more reasonable than we were expecting. If you have a small cup then you can choose two ice cream flavours to go in it for 2 euros. You do get plenty for your money.
