Gelateria La Carraia

Piazza Nazario Sauro, 25/r, 50124 Firenze FI, Italy

My search for the world’s best ice cream took me to Italy, then to Florence, then to a gelateria called La Carraia, in the neighborhood of Santa Trinita across the river. There, I found a blissful, creamy mix of pistachio and chocolate, the same recipes made with skill and love for centuries. The gelato here is the antithesis to mass produced, franchised, fast foods. Good to know that the old ways are always the best.
