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 :)

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
