Oldest gelato shop in Florence with amazing gelato. Incredible flavours and so cheap. For $2 I got a waffle cone with 2 flavours. The chocolate orange and chocolate hazelnut flavours are out of this world! Menu in photos attached.

Excellent and tasty Italian gelato for normal and usual Italian price 2,50 eur for 2 copas. We can only highly recommend!!! Note: In Firenze are mostly crazy, they want 10 eur for 1 copa in the middle of the town. :-(

We tasted various gelaterias, this has got to be the best gelato in Florence! For €1.00 you can have gelato in a cone. This is a very cute little shop.

Dear customer, We believe that you have the wrong ice cream because we do not like banana now. Greetings La Carraia gelateria
