Gelateria De’ Medici

Gelateria De’ Medici is conveniently located in Piazza Beccaria. It
is a welcoming, family-run gelato parlor. The atmosphere is elegant
with a chandelier and a grand setting. No reservations are needed as it
is a take-away establishment. However, it is strongly encouraged to
order ahead for specialty cakes. The parlor is open six days a week
and open from morning until midnight.
Their menu consists of 44 different flavors of gelato, fruit sorbets,
cakes with fruit or mousse, and even gelato stuffed fruits. These flavors
are constantly updated based on the seasons and available
ingredients. Upon walking in, you see a large counter for service and
two available seats. The staff at Gelateria De’ Medici were very
friendly, willing to describe each flavor, and let you sample as many
flavors as you desired. With so many wonderful options it was hard to
just pick a couple. The pricing for gelato is between 2 and 4
euros, and for cakes it is 15 and 32 euros. The price of gelato was based on the cup
or cone size chosen, so customers were able to have multiple flavors in one serving.
The quality was outstanding. It was fresh and had a smooth, creamy texture.
The consistency was just right, not too soft and not too hard.
Overall I would recommend Gelateria De’ Medici to a friend or
family member. With such wide variety of ice-cream flavors and other
goodies it would appeal to anyone with a sweet tooth.
