I came seeking gelato through a Lonely Planet tip. You pay first (slightly pricier than other gelaterias by 50 cents), and got chocolate hazelnut and chocolate mousse (as I am a chocolate fiend). The flavor was good (as are most gelato flavors in Italy), but what stood out to me was the rich cream of the gelato that remained in... More

At Vivioli, the gelato is very fresh and high quality. They have tons of flavors to chose from. This was one of the best gelato places that we went to on our trip to Italy.

I had never seen Riso (rice) before so I had to try and Pear with Caramel was the next obvious choice. So good we repeated the next day. I am not sure if it is normal or not but both days they did not have cones, just cups but you can add a biscuit on top.

Best gelato I ever had. The coffee mousse flavor was to die for. Would have it every day if I could.

I was recommended by our guide tour and had great expectations. However, the staff was very rude and unpolite with the few clients that were there. Ice cream was fine but not icy enough.

I was in Italy for about two and a half weeks. I had gelato every day twice a day, I love it! Of all of the gelato I ate, Vivoli was the best by far! If you are near Santa Croce stop by! You will go back for seconds!

If you are near Santa Croce in Florence, you must try out this gelateria. We tested many gelatos and this by far was the best in Florence. My favourite flavours are pistachio and hazelnut. My husband tried the darkest chocolate he could find and the coffee flavours. This gelateria was recommended by a local. No outdoor seating.
