As it was number one in firenze on trip advisor, i went there for a taste but was quiet disappointed: the ice cream is all right but not as great as i imagine a nber one can be! The strawberry does not taste like being made of real fresh fruits and the vanilla did not really taste like fresh vanilla either! I also have to admit tho that after having had the nicest strawberry ice cream on the corner of ponte s. Trinita & via lungarno soderini, it would have been dificult to compete! Conclusion: not bad but lacking fresh tastes of fruit!

We enjoyed some beautiful gelato after a cheap and cheerful pizza at Pizza Gusto nearby, the gelato was superb. I chose Nutella and Marscapone flavour with Hazelnut, absolutely delicious! My husband went for cheesecake and caramel, also very tasty. Highly recommended!

I cannot understand how a small gelateria can garner "Best Restaurant in Tuscany." This is hardly a restaurant, and while I might argue it is among the best gelaterias in Florence, which is best is certainly up for debate.

I think this should be under "Things to do" rather than restaurants.

Delicious flavors and great tasting gelato!! Would recommend Nocciola (hazelnut), cheescake, pistachio flavors......couldn't get enough! Had one daily.....twice if you are heading to Piazza Michelangelo....one on way there and one on the way back! The carbs are required pre and post climb:)
