After two months of living in Florence, I have become quite the gelato connoisseur. I have tried dozens of gellaterias and this one is by far my favorite! This gelato tasted so good that I had to come back and order a second one within 20 minutes of ordering my first. All of the gelato is natural; there are no preservatives or additives. And the owner, Francesco, is the sweetest man you will ever meet. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE, YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE!!!

Truly super - best ice cream we have had - very friendly owners who are passionate about ice cream - no artificial ingredients no colouring and no additives - the bonbons (displayed in the glass fridge) are also worth a try

Gelato is on every corner in Florence, but this place is probably the best we had on our trip. We had the caramelized chestnut flavor, and it was amazing. Highly recommended.

Whist meandering through the side streets of Florence on holiday from the UK this month, we stumbled upon a small inconspicuous Gelateria in Via Dè Ginori that had small round containers with lids on behind the counter, as opposed to the large heaped rectangular ones on display around the city. This was not a restaurant, but an ice-cream and chocolate specialist.

Intrigued, we entered and realised that we were in a room of a very old building with a painted and vaulted ceiling. The chap behind the counter explained that it is part of a 14th century larger building with the main entrance next door through a large and formidable wooden door.

We selected our ice creams and sat on a small stone seat by the windows to enjoy the most exquisite tasting ice-cream ever. He explained that the home-made individual batches had natural ingredients and were not to be compared with the large “mountains” of ice cream available from other vendors. Indeed, he presented us with some samples including the most intense tasting chocolate ice cream ever. The flavours from the smallest spoonful danced on the tongue and it really needs to be savoured to be appreciated.

I can honestly say that it is the best ice cream that we have ever tasted. Le botteghe di Leonardo, il gelato che non c'era. Not to be missed….and very reasonably priced.
