Artisanal ice cream in Florence

Min. reading

There are many ice cream parlours which offer and boast authentic artisanal ice cream in Florence, but one above all the rest stands out for quality, taste and tradition: Gelateria Carabè.

The owner Antonio Lisciandro has ice cream in his DNA, as his family was making ice cream before the machines came along that replaced the genius and the manual skills of the human being, back when they were still calling it iced flavoured water and granita hadn’t appeared yet.

In his laboratories, one of which is entirely surrounded by glass in order to reveal every part of the preparation, fresh ingredients get turned into ice cream, fully respecting their original flavours and following the natural produce of the seasons.

Tasting the ice cream of Antonio Lisciandro means fully merging with fruit and aromatic spices in a leap back to the origins of an ice cream that never forgot the evolution of taste, on the contrary, it brings to mind the teachings of the real artisans of the three major Italian schools: Sicilian, Tuscan and Venetian.

In a world oriented to homologation and to the consequent loss of cultural, artistic and culinary identity, the philosophy of Gelateria Carabè is to bring back the value of differences through production that is centred on fresh ingredients and the customer.

The latter is actually the recipient of an “iced emotion” through which it is possible to taste the quality of real artisanal ice cream once more, born in the heart of Florence, in Forte dei Marmi and on the Valdarno hills, at Parco Carabè, which is a twenty-minute-drive from our hotel.

Here, the ice cream factory charms each guest with real tastings and lessons about the main ingredients such as fruits, which are seen, smelt and rediscovered in all of their shades in the ice cream served.

An artisan of ice cream turns the ingredients into pure emotion without stealing their soul, without violating them with alterations and processes such as the addition of fats and sugars, which have more to do with business than with nature.

When we thought of an ice cream to include on the menu of our restaurant Il Desco Bistrot, we discovered we had very much in common with Antonio Lisciandro, like the passion for real authentic tastes, without undergoing the same artificial processes of certain gluten free products.

All this convinced us to ask him to offer you another healthy delicacy during your stay in Florence. We too feel like artisans of hospitality, after all!

Reserve your room at the ’Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco of Florence and discover all the flavours of Italian artisanal ice cream!
