The blend of home made ice-cream and cocktails are a must-try whilst in Florence. We stumbled across Cono Gelato and had a fantastic afternoon/evening trying different ice-cream cocktails and was well looked after by the charismatic and friendly owner, Enrico. Needless to say we went back several times. If you like ice-cream, you have to give this place a try.

Not recommandable at all! We wanted to get icecream in their smallest cone, so they gave us the smallest cone visible on the counter. Next to it there was a sign saying that it would cost 2.50 Euro. So we chose the flavours for our two scoops. At the cash desk however, all the sudden we were supposed to pay... More

We tried a lot of gelato places, and this was definitely our favorite. The prices were great and the flavors were so delicious. The owner was very patient with my kids trying to make up their minds about what flavors to get, but we were all very happy with our choices. It was so pleasant to sit outside on the... More

I went there with my family, trying to taste a good icecream. But only because my wife was checking the options of size and price, the guy started to complain that it was not a bag shop, that his icecream was priceless and one of the best, as se only were interested in a common and cheap one. We felt... More

I studied abroad in Florence for a month and I went to Cono Gelato almost every single day. The owner is a wonderful man who makes all his own gelato and will share some wisdom along with free samples if you're willing to hear it. It remains one of my best memories of the city.

A group of friends stayed at the flat above Cono Gelato on Via Faenza. We enjoyed having our morning espressos and afternoon gelatos at the shop and chatting with Enrico-the worldly and friendly owner. Hello from the three of us! We enjoyed spending time at the store and thank you for being friendly and helpful about places to visit in... More

Hazelnut, coconut, dark chocolate, banana, ... We have tried at least 12 flavours but there are still more to discover. The problem is just that we have only one day left in Florence and must taste our favourites again. How many ice creams can you eat in a day?

We are in Florence on our honeymoon and wanted to sample the best ice cream in town and here we found it! This is without a doubt the best Gelato in the whole of Florence.

This fantastic little gelateria is definitely worth seeking out! The gelato is amazing and the owner is clearly passionate about his craft. He was friendly and helpful, and we returned each night we were in Florence just to taste something new and chat with our new friend.

My fiancé and I stayed in Florence and went looking for gelato our first night in town. Luckily we found Cono Gelato and enjoyed the gelato and friendly owner so mcuh we returned each evening. I highly recommend you stop by for the best gelato we've experienced in Italy.
