I truly think this is the best gelato I've ever had, as well as the most delightful combination of flavors! We went around 4 pm and there were no lines. Don't hesitate - go!!

We ate a lot of gelato on our recent trip to Italy but this may have been our favorite stop! I got the Custard Cream and the Chocolate Orange and they were both mouth watering. The lineup out the door was a definite sign that...More

Amazing flavors - especially the pistachio. Place was recommended by our city guide - said this was the place he took his kids too for gelatto. We were not disappointed and will be fond memory of our trip to Florence.

Decent variety of flavors and great location for enjoying gelato on the river. Visited this shop several times on our trip for a nice after dinner dessert.

An Italian acquaintance told me La Carraia was 'where the locals go'. I can't swear to that but the gelato was awesome and the price was quite reasonable. I will be back, ohyes, I will be back.....

The best ice cream on our Italian trip. Queue was there but not too long. Worth the wait anyhow. No park nearby to sit in but some street furniture to choose from e.g. Shop doorway

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
