Our family have sampled lots of the best rated places and this comes out on top. Proper traditional egg crema recipes and delicious intense flavours.

Very rich, creamy, delicious gelato - a little bit away from the very center of Florence, but still only a short walk really. They have a number of different delicious flavours, a good mix between rich sweet flavours and refreshing fruity options. I tried 3 different ones, all of which where very different but equally delicious. Clearly homemade with real... More

A bit of a low point, many people score this place high, but for us 3 the ice creams was I bit disappointing, with numoures ice cristals in them, and either to strong a taste, or no taste of what it was meant to be. Sorry, can only give 3 stars, worst ice in Italy so far

While all the classics are superb esp pistachio and Cremino it is their beautiful house creations that have us crossing Florence - patient staff and somewhere to sit make this a Florentine must for all gelato lovers

Really good selection of ice cream and sorbets to choose from. Try the lemon, absolutely delicious on such a hot day. One of the best gelato shops in Florence.

Found by accident on the way to Santa Croce. All the classic flavours plus some creations using nuts and dried fruits. Well worth a visit.

It isn't truly central but Florence is so small it is only 5 mins walk from Santa Croce and worth going to. Well priced and very very tasty. Real fresh made on site stuff and you can tell.

Very artistic gelato, very creative, fresh and homemade. Especially the tastes that are made only by Procopio (like Il Procopio, La Follia di Procopio, Il cafe with nuts and chocolate).

Always heard of it but never tried until today. It is really excellent! Probably not the most classic Italian gelato as we love plain flavours whereas Procopio gelato is very rich: an Italian would usually ask for dark or milk chocolate, not for dark chocolate with chocolate chips, almond and maybe caramel or bla bla bla. My favourite scoops: Chantilly... More

What can you say about a perfect food, just when you find the perfect perfect food you must say so. Well here they have the creamiest gelato we found on any trip to Italy and that says a lot since we eat gelato a two times a day everyday were here. A bit out of the way but well worth... More
