Fantastic place

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.

We actually came across this place more by accident than anything else. It was one of those extremely hot summer days in Florence and we were desperately looking for a gelateria to escape the heat for a while when we spotted this rather unassuming yet very cosy place at Via Faenza 50-52/r. We order he biggest gelato cups on the... More

Located just around the corner from the Mercato Centrale, Cono Gelato is the place to be. The gelato is made fresh daily on the premises with the freshest ingredients by owner, and master gelato maker Enrico. And it is he for whom I wax poetic: You see it is not just that the gelato is superbly delicious (which it is)... More

Today our family came in, for the second time, to have gelato in this business. It wasn't necessarily the quality that drew us in. We found it to be a standard quality gelato. We have lived in Italy for almost three months and have travelled extensively, eating gelato everywhere we went. We came back because it was close to our... More

Honestly, the very best Gelato in Florence! Not only good but the owner, operator, master gelato maker knows his craft. He makes fresh batches early in the morning, and makes only enough for a half hotel pan. If the flavor sells out, come back tomorrow for some more! He also knows to keep the product out of the sun and... More

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
