Description

Conveniently placed in a side street near the exit of the cathedral.Is this the best ice cream in Florence? With such attention to freshness and nature's seasonal produce, surely Grom is a serious contender for such an accolade. They organically grow their own old cultivar varieties of peaches, apricots, pears, figs, strawberries and melons and source their other raw materials with equal care from around Italy and the wider world.A quick glance at the flavours of the month board is enough to excite any palate, a further glance tells you that the chocolate comes from a named plantation and the hazelnuts are a named variety! Then the dilemma begins, should you have a gelato, a sorbetto, a granita or in winter, an ice cream with thick melted chocolate poured over? A list of 'harmonious matches' may help you, or you have to just keep coming back!

Description

Chocolate heaven?Summer or winter this is the place for chocolate lovers. In the summer, squeeze into this tiny shop to try one of the wonderful chocolate based ice creams and in winter, a hot shot of liquid chocolate. Vestri cocoa is produced on the family farm in Santo Domingo without the use of pesticides and chemicals, and then refined in Arezzo at the family workshop. After every stage has been carefully overseen by the Vestri family, the finished product is brought to us in Florence. Beautiful handmade chocolates lined up in the glass counter with military prescision make wonderful gifts, or for something a little unusual, try Cioccolata del Granduca, a jasmine flavoured chocolate invented for the Grand Dukes of Tuscany. Vestri ice creams are made here in the shop from the freshest seasonal produce, with absolutely no artificial additives. Try ice cream made with hazelnuts, pistacchios or coffee beans that have been roasted in the cocoa bean roasting drums. Or taste the 'original' gelato crema fiorentina, invented by Buontalenti for the Medici family. In summer look for soft fruit ice creams and in autumn the unusual flavours of fig, persimmon or chestnut. Chocolate is of course available all year round!
