If you are looking for a touristy spot with everything in English and huge servings this isn't for you. Authentic , gorgeous flavours and not too sweet. Perfect servings and you can tell quality ingredients. The best I have had here. The chocolate fondant literally...More

The best ice cream in town and no doubt one of the best worldwide. Authentic ingredients, unusual and well balanced tastes, no artificial additives, not sickly sweet as most ice creams are, creamy texture and very good cones. Kind owners and nice location, adjacent to...More

This very small artisanal Gelateria is simply delicious. It was our favorite in Florence and one of the best in Italy. We were served by the owner and master himself. It was so cool to speak with someone who took such pride in his work....More

Escape from tourist hell and walk a little bit further than the Palazzo Pitti to this little square. You won't regret it. The gelato beats the stuff they try to sell you around Ponte Vecchio.

Went here on the suggestion of a local. Gelato was very good, staff very friendly, and willing to answer questions regarding gluten free status of the flavours (all are GF). Will be going back for sure.

It was good ice cream, but small range of flavours and no comfortable sitting. But nothing much of it stood out and it was upsetting that she didn't mention we could've ordered 2-3 flavours even in the small size.

We were walking late at night towards our car that was parked very closed and the gelateria was closing... We asked if he could serve us some ice cream... Yes, and that was our introduction to a superb ice cream. In the end the owner...More

Sorbettiera is one of the best gelato joint during this trip to Italy. Its gelato is just flavourful. Texture was creamy, chewy, light but packed. Love it.

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
