Ive been studying in Florence for almost 4 months now, and this is by far the best Gelato place I have ever tried. I recommend the Fragola, banana, and nutella!!!! The man who works here is also one of my favorite people in Italy. So nice and friendly. Its a positive atmosphere. Me and my friends could hang out and... 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

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?
