We lucked out and this delightful gelateria was next to our B&B. Great flavors and friendly helpful staff. Wife had had pineapple plus lemon basil - amazingly good. I had Soche Tarte (Austrian chocolate cake), and 2 other flavors (one with coffee the other with nuts & orange peel). Yummy!

I had the chocolate and a delicious coffee crunch gelato. The flavours are amazing and the staff is friendly. The best gelato I had in Florence on this trip and we tried several, including Perché No! and a trip down memory lane to Vivoli, both of which were disappointing. Try it, really, really good!

Location: In the Santa Croce area. The place: More like a storefront with no seating area. However, the layout is perfect as the entire space in front of the displays is open. This gelateria is run by husband and wife, a couple who really seem to enjoy what they do. I had the awesome privilege of going into the prep... More

Il Procopio is one of the best ice cream places that Florence has. Homemade ice cream that comes in different flavours and combinations which turned out to be absolutely delicious. We ran into this "Gelateria" while taking a food tour (www.eatflorence.it) which takes you to different local shops whre you can try the real taste of Tuscany cuisine. It was... More

We stumbled upon Il Procopio because we were actually renting an apartment in Santa Croce and walked right by this place on the way to the Duomo. It wasn't until we after we tried it that we found out about their awards. There are gelato places all over Florence, some very good, but this place was wonderful! Creamy, wonderful flavors... More

Absolutely delicious gelato with fabulous flavors - some completely inventive and some old favorites - like caffe and pistachio! And you can taste the passion Paolo puts into his creations in every bite. Walk out of your way for this place. A note - the outside of the shop does not look like the picture above. I have added a... More

We found this ice cream shop just passing by and it turned out to be the best so far. Lots of interesting combinations which turned out to be award winning. The server was friendly, helpful and remembered me the second day. Try it if you're near.

I was in the area and tried 'il procopio'. Had just one scoop of their 'mandorla' preparation which apparently was a prize winner. The gelato was nice but nothing outstanding compared to what you can find in other places. I did feel that -prize winner or not- with this taste they took things too far: there's also some thing as... More

In the search for the very best gelato in Florence, I nominate the small, unpretentious Il Procopio on Via Peitrapiana. Named after the Sicilian pioneer of gelato, they have a relatively small selection of truly exceptional flavors and an attention to quality ingredients. Don't miss the pistachio (from special Bronte pistachios from Sicily, DOP) or the Cremino, a fudgy-cream mix.... More

The gelato here is fantastic. We come here every year and have never been disappointed in the 5 years we have visited Florence. It is a family run business and the icecream is made on-site at the back of the shop. You are really spoilt for choice so don't be afraid to ask what the flavours are- the staff are... More
