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.

The prices are really good. The gelato is also high quality. After spending 4 weeks and getting gelato once or twice every day this place was a highlight. They put a cone in the gelato too which most places don't do. In a hip part of town. Highly recommend.

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 times just... 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.
