The ice cream is not mind-blowing as you might expect but it's definitely the best gelateria we were able to find during our stay in Florence. The ice cream is not too sweet (rice or crema taste especially) and the staff speaks English.

I was looking forward to seeing a family run old fashioned business, knowing that it was also well known and probably very touristy. My 13 year old son had seen “I”ll have what Phil’s having” and we felt I had to try this place as...More

We visited Florence in June 2019. We checked out Vivoli for the gelato at first, but then since it was just around the corner from our apartment, we started going there for breakfast. The cappuccino is fantastic and so are the pastries and fresh squeezed...More

Wonderful gelato and service despite us having a hard time finding it. (User error plus Google Maps sucks offline.) But the product? Oh man, it was like eating a cloud. Very light and fluffy!

The ice cream was very good. 4 flavours for 5 euros. It seemed traditional and the cream flavour and the chocolate with orange were very good.

In the 3 days we spent in Florence, we had gelato from 5 different places and this one was the best! It was so refreshing on a hot day and was very good.

Came here at the recommendation of a friend’s. Excellent and unique ice cream flavours. Service was your typical northern Italian style lol but all in all very satisfying! I lived the wine flavoured gelato !

Creamy and flavourful! Vivoli’s gelato is so delicious that it gives you the feel good vibes a holiday is supposed to give you! The kind you need after doing some sightseeing or after having a meal. There’s a lot of favours to choose from too.

The gelato was so unnecessarily sweet that I could hardly taste the creaminess. We are a family of five who visited and this was our sentiment, esp. after having visited Il Massimo del Gelato in Milan a week earlier.
