Amazing!

The best gelato I've had anywhere in Italy! Not overpriced, and the owner is very nice. Super creamy and delicious, we may go back again tonight!

I studied abroad this past 4 months in Florence. What was once a quick stop into a local gelateria turned into daily/weekly stops at Cono Gelato! I definitely recommend biscotto, fragola(strawberry) and banana. When my family came to visit me in Florence, Cono Gelato was the first gelateria I took them to. My roommates and I loved going into Cono... More

The gelato itself is freshcreamy and just sweet enough. Il Bochio de Firenze (The Kiss of Florence), which is chocolate and hazelnut, is superbo; the coconut is a wowser. Also fantastico is the proprietor and creator of the gelati, Enrico. A natural gentleman and a scholar of Life, he is a joy to to talk with. Sweet gelato and sweet... More

I was surprise to see that this place had such great reviews after we arrived and looked into the refrigerated case. The Gelato we had seemed watered down, (if that's possible). After being in Florence for six days, I feel I had much better options at other places. Many of the Gelato places in Florence have beautiful presentations with fruit,... More

Cono gelato offers more than just fantastic tasting gelato. It is a feast of the senses brought together by Enrico, the charismatic and soulful proprietor who brings the finest ingredients, knowledge and passion to every ounce of gelato. Enrico makes the gelato and even hand picks the ingredients - if the ingredients are not good enough - he won't make... More

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
