Must eat ice cream every day

Since I stumbled upon this ice cream parlour I have made sure I've come back each trip. I can see other visitors doing the same. They have won awards for their ice cream combinations. It really is delicious. They also have ice cream cakes and waffles/pancakes, smoothies and drinks. The staff... read more

This is the best coffee gelato. Yes I know that's hard to believe with the many places to get gelato. But the difference is that it has chips of chocolate and nuts in it. I tried at least 5 different places and none of them stand up to it. Plus the prices are very reasonable. One of the cheapest I've... More

We stayed in Florence through airbnb and our host was a local of Florence. He recommended to us the "Cremino" flavoured gelato which is basically hazelnut, nutella and vanilla ice cream mixed through (maybe with other stuff, i'm not sure) and it was the best gelato we had all over Europe. We went back 3 times! DEFINITELY recommend visiting here... More

Stopped by late Saturday afternoon on a cool day and this place was packed with locals and tourists. Had the Il Procopio gelato (it had a combo of pistachios, orange zest and almonds) and it was amazing. Not too sweet, well balanced and you could taste all the flavours. I also liked that each cup of gelato came with a... More

The coffee gelato is thick and mixed with crunchy nuts and dark chocolate. Excellent! The pistachio gelato with pistachio nuts is also among the best.

The word Procopio comes from a Greek word, which means Progress. These people know very well how to make seriously amazing Gelato. Best pistacchio di bronte I have ever had, delicious. Thanks for existing;) See you soon!

One of my favourite artigianal icecream place! They have special flavours, my favourite was Pistachio di Bronte. The prices are a bit lower in compare with other downtown places.

Visited this excellent place several times on a recent visit to Florence, and definitely one of my favourites. Between us we tried a wide variety of flavours and they were all delicious. An added bonus was the friendly service that we received, which isn't always the case. Well priced too. Highly recommend!

This is a fantastic place for gelato. The flavours are varied and sublime. We were fortunate enough to discover it via a food tour, where we got to see the owner preparing a peach gelato out back. With a little prompting from the high temperatures in July, my husband and I returned to this place several times during our stay... More

Decent gelato a little bit from the center. This is definitely a place for those who like their gelato with a lot of toppings/mix ins. There are basically no plain flavors.
