“Venchi, awesome gelatto at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Venchi (pronounced "ven key") makes and sells the best gelatto ever with a huge assortment of flavors to suit every taste. Located a few blocks north of the Ponte Vecchio at the Piazza del Mercato. Touristy, oh yes, but reasonably priced and good value. It is a must see and experience place. We went every night and were always happy we did.

“If you love ice cream, do not miss this place!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The best gelato I have ever had.
Any flavor you have at Venchi is outstanding but their caramel is truly a one-off.
This is a great way to take break at any hour of the day.

“Amazing ice cream”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Just perfect. Handmade icecream without hydrogenated fat, or articial flavour. My favorites dulce de leche and crema venchi.

“The best thing I ever ate...”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

This would definitely rate for the TV show...the chocolate hazelnut crepe...to die for. It is warm, chocolatey, and had wonderful pieces of chopped hazelnuts. Skip the gelato on at least one day and head on over to Venchi Chocolate shop. You will not be sorry. We split one for dessert and will head back over again before our tripod over!

“Simply the best”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Both locals and visitors alike seem to agree that Venchi is the best gelato around. Certainly our experience concurs. There's nowhere to sit and it's in a pretty crowded part of town, but the chocolate was as rich and dark as could be and the vanilla creamier than I could have hoped for. Definitely a great mid afternoon pleasure!
