The gelato was great. I'm vegan and the owner pointed out to me which ones were dairy free. Enrico also talked with me for a little while and gave me some great life advice...

My husband and I were in Italy for two weeks, we walked by this place several times. One night I wasn't feeling well so I went back to the room and my husband met me later with surprise Gelato from Cono Gelato. It was amazing!! We went back the next night and got different flavors, after trying all of them,... More

While on vacation, we stopped by this nice cafe/gelato shop mainly because the owner smiled at me :-). Unsure of what I wanted, he explained the process of making gelato and offered a few samples. We choose wonderful creations and enjoyed our delights with cups of espresso afterwards! Not only was the gelato great, the service was even better!

I had the chocolate and the queen. The queen was especially delicious---very creamy and smooth. On the owner's recommendation, my mom had lemon with her dark chocolate. He was very friendly and helpful, so perhaps reviewers displeased with his manner caught him on s bad day. We would definitely go back.

Enrico was very friendly and welcoming as the 9 of us sampled various flavours before choosing. Wonderful gelato and very reasonably priced. We sat and ate them at the small tables in this quiet street watching the world go by and chatting between us and with Enrico. A memorable moment. Go there!

The atmosphere was absolutely great. My group of friends stayed in Florence for one month and went here at least 3 times a week if not more. We had a blast each time and the owner was very nice. He spoke very good English and just gave us an overall great experience, not to mention the gelato is fantastic!

This place is great. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very welcoming! I stopped by once in the late afternoon for a glass of wine and later on for dessert. Exceptional service both times

The sign will say "Time for Gelato" with a big cone outside, Its on Via Faenza, close to the train station, a hostel, and the Duomo. I'm studying abroad in Florence for a month, my roommates & I came here almost every day, not only for the gelato but the owner is so passionate about what he does and cares... More

I have tried many Gelato places in Florence in the past 3 days (there are lots of them!) Enrico, the owner makes his own Gelato and he is a real talented man (and quite a personality!). This is the best ice cream I tried in Florence! Highly recommended for ice cream lovers.
