Big servings & flavour! Delicious gelato! Highly recommend! The owner was so friendly too. Be sure to bring cash as he does not accept credit cards.

This place is amazing. This is the creamiest, most delicious handmade recipes for gelato. We spent two weeks in Italy eating gelato everyday and came back to this place in Florence just to have one more of his amazing gelato before we left. The flavours are all real fruit and cream or milk depending on his recipe. The worlds greatest... More

Although it was helpful to offer taster spoons before ordering, it was begrudgingly served, where we felt an inconvenience to her empty ice cream parlour - no customers and no queues!! The mint chic chip was way too sickly sweet.

The cleanest gelato and at a great price! The owner is friendly!! There is a variety of unique flavors and seating outside! Ignore the other high prices places.

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... You make your gelato with passion, you make great gelato. Put passion into everything you do. Thanks for an unforgettable time.

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.

Thank Amy C
