This post is a feature of two gelaterias that I am especially fond of in Florence, and for the same reason - they both have the most heavenly Nutellatta gelato. The first is Bar Pontevecchio, which is a café located at one end of the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge. While its Nocciola (hazelnut) gelato was pretty decent, the Nutellatta was just in another league of its own. Creamy gelato with thick, rich swirls of Nutella chocolate, simply lovely.
The other favourite of mine is a small gelateria situated at Piazza Del Mercato Nuovo, though its name (I doubt "Gelato" was meant to be a definitive name) still eludes me even after at least two return visits. Nevertheless, I sure caught the attention of the stallowner, and at the third visit he finally asked me, with a wide smile, "Is it really good?" I beamed with delight and told him his Nutellatta was just amazing. Here's why.
Creamy gelato with not just swirls or slivers but thick layers (I'm tempted to even type slabs) of Nutella all around. Not many people can handle such chocolatey goodness for sure, but I for one found it seductively brilliant. At brief moments it did feel as though you're eating Nutella right out of the bottle, but the experience is even more satisfying now with the company of delicious milky ice-cream. Awesome.
€2.50 for small, €3.50 for medium.
