Having eaten gelato in several places across italy this was one of the worst places. The same standard price you pay in most places but very bland gelato . Much better choices in florence.

When you are used to something really good you immediately feel the difference while eating this ice cream. It seemed to have grains inside, it was not creamy and dense..and the taste could be compared to ice cream with water inside and some sugar. Sorry, but on my view this is not like a good ice cream should be.

Based on reviews i expected more. Just average. There was no real flavour. This is some icecream you get in any shop not what you expect from some special icecream shop.

Tried this place on our first night and how disappointed I was. The only good point of this place is they are not charging 10-20Euros for their largest cup. Tried the 5.5 Euro cup and choose strawberry and others. Firstly they ensured the top cup was flat and nothing like the photos or others posting photos on here, so basically... More

When we went to Bella Mia two years ago, it was the best gelato we had ever tasted. We were there almost every day and night we spent in Florence. We were so looking forward to visiting again this year but we were highly disappointed. It just did not taste the same. In our opinion, it completely lost that smoothness... More

Nat our tour guide for Florence for Foodies brought us hear. I did not think anything could beat Porcheno. But Nona's Di Creme was the best. My other 3 favors were good too. Pistachio, straitiaccela and double chocolate. Small batches and all natural. Very very good.

I found this to be the best gelato place in the whole of Florence! None of this stupidly fake coloured massive piles of ice cream that's been left out for three days. This is made on the day (usually within the last hour or so) and is actually stored IN A FRIDGE and not just in a cabinet. It's extremely... More

The place catches your eye and invites in. But unfortunately ice cream tastes like iced water with artificial suger,absolutely no cream or taste.
