Does anyone know the kashrus situation for the gelato place in Florence called Ambrosia?

That depends on your level of kashrus. Ask your local kashrus authority for someone they trust in Italy and narrow it down from there.

And ask about Ruth's as well. I received different information when I enquired from locals before - but that could be from a different era.  It seems that these things are always changing...

Both Ruth’s and Ambrosia are certified kosher by the Chief Rabbi of Florence.

I visited Terra Di Seta and enjoyed it.  Hearing the routine used to make wine was interesting and the Mrs, who ran the tour, was great.
Driving there was BEAUTIFUL!  But get good directions there; we got badly lost GPSing to the wrong place.
