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

This ice-cream place has won the 1st prize on the ice-cream festival of Firenze in 2011. I didn't try that flavour though, I like the more conventional ones... But the ones I tried are delicious so it's worth stopping by if you're around. Moreover, the prices are not extremely high so it's a pleasure to eat ice-cream there.

It took my husband and I a while to find this place. He was determined after reading the reviews. The hunt for this place was completely worth it. The gelato was amazing. The best we had on our whole trip in Italy. The customer service was excellent. Just like the other reviewers we tried the lemon and basil, it really... More

Not in the best area and hard to find, but well worth it. The consistency of this gelato is impressive. The flavors wonderful. I am an ice cream/ gelato officianado and this was the best we had in the whole trip.
