They have a nice chocolate-orange ice cream and their Ice cream coffee is definitely a must try! Lovely place

The gelato at this place is very good. A range of flavours available at a reasonable price. It is quite difficult to find, however. The atmosphere inside is very warm, and there is comfortable seating to enjoy your ice cream sat down.

This place is known to be one of the oldest gelatarias in Florence. I am sure all flavors are good. What we had was stracciatella, pineapple with ginger and chocolate mousse. All three were delicious but the one that stole the show was the chocolate...mousse. I have discovered a new flavor of icecream thanks to Vivoli.More

It is worth looking up this location and diverting for the best gelato in Florence. Four generations have been making gelato, and it's evident in the smooth texture, and creative and standard gelato flavors. Try the seasonal fruit gelatos. Very fresh taste.

Best gelato In Florence. We enjoyed Vivoli 20 years ago and it is still OUTSTANDING. the fresh coconut is a great flavor as is the chocolate orange. You can’t miss with their flavors and better not miss stopping off here once or twice a day.

Situated at the square, his ice cream parlour has delicious flavours to offer. The mango ice cream was too delicious.

We found this place in 2003 when we first came to Florence and have been singing its praises for 16 years no0w. The gelato is still very good - and now it has a disney world location - so - I guess that confirms our...choice as the best gelato on the planety - but - Gioglitti in Rome is not bad eitherMore

You must try the hot chocolate! It is amazing. It is not powdered- they take a piece of chocolate and melt it with warm milk. Amazing

We went to Vivoli several times for gelato during our stay in Florence. We tried several flavors, but my favorite was the melon. The crema was also very good.

I've eaten better ice creams in Sicily, Aosta, Sardinia, etc. We went there only because someone told us it was the best ice cream in Florence. What a disappointment! it was rather expensive, tiny portions, and sugary. I won't come back again to this place....La Carraia offers better quality, prices and bigger portions.More
