Gelato Sublime

Got to visit this gelato place and did a tour of the back where they showed us the process how they make the gelato. We then got to sample some of their flavors. Each flavor was unique and tasted exactly as you'd expect from the names of the flavors. They were all rich and I came back multiple... read more

Go to Il Procopio for the best ice cream in the area. They were winners of the best ice cream in 2011 and (in my view) are still the best in the city.

My wife and I are passionate about gelatto and are ready to walk miles, if need be, to taste a good one. And we have discovered the perfect gelatteria in Florence, by far better than Perché No!, very popular with the tourist crowd. This is a typical hand-made gelatto made by a talented and creative craftsman, who combines new flavors... More

Perfect texture. Excellent. Lemon basil, pistachio with candied orange, dark chocolate. All fantastic. One of the best in Florence. A bit out of the way, but worth the trek. More locals than tourists. Highly recommended.

Big portions of yummy gelati in the center of Firenze. I had a coffee chocolate with nuts and I loved it!

We had gelati at least once per day whilst staying in Firenze and quickly came to realise that Il Procopio was far and away the best we tried. An amazing array of interesting flavors to satisfy any taste (I am a chocolate fan and my partner prefers the fruity varieties) While I'm sure many of the gelato stores scattered throughout... More

Came back for another winter visit amongst others. Won the coveted best ice cream award in 2011 but they are still the best. Owners/staff are welcoming and charming. They have less standard flavours than some but also have waffles and ice cream based drinks and cakes. Always worth a visit.

We are renting on Via Vincenzo Giobertti for 4 weeks and we have had our dessert at Il Procopio every evening on our way back from sightseeing! The best gelato in Florence. The gentleman makes his own and you never know what he has picked up at the Market for flavors so it is always a surprise to see what... More

All you need after a long evening in the library is a beautiful delicious frozen yogurt while you make a long walk at home on the night streets :)

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
