Had a pure chocolate gelato without dairy - truly an experience ! Absolutely Devine - service was good prompt and reasonably priced. Portion big/shareable - outside seating with nice view. Loved it!

The gelato here is not only the best, it is also the most hygienic. The other shops have these huge mounds, troughs really, of melting gelato that have been sitting there for who-know-how long. With servers reaching over the nearer piles to reach the piles that are farther away. Disgusting. But Cantina del Gelato keeps their smaller, fresher batches in... More

Small shop just southeast of the hustle and bustle of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Nice selection of flavors, and good value. Was some of the smoothest and richest gelato we tried.

Building works in the surrounding square during our visit made it slightly more difficult to find. Great gelato with some interesting flavours - had a mint and ginger option. Standard prices. Worth a visit.

We all loved our gelato flavors from Cantina del Gelato. We stumbled upon this gem on our walk towards the Hotel David on the other side of the Ponte Vecchio. I had a gelato with tumeric in it. Would have gone back but we ran out of days. Highly recommend!

Found this gelato bar via trip advisor search when we were near the Ponte Vecchio & it was easy enough to find (with the help of google maps). It is a cute shop, friendly staff, reasonably priced with delicious gelato! Too many flavours to choose from, we'll have to return, one day.....

Really small gelato shop and I remembered coming here a few years back. Been to a few gelato places since we arrived and this is definitely the best! Interesting choices and tasted great! I had turmeric and fig plus yogurt with honey and nuts. Both really good. My husband got chocolate and it's just awesome! Go and have a gelato... More

The best ice cream we had: the best ingredients, not too sweet ice cream. The only one we go back to Price is average, location : quite easy to find, good selection. And for Acai lover too. You should try it! You won't be disappointed!
