The pear and coconut gelato were superb. All the flavors we tried were wonderful. Great value and great taste!

Vivaldi Gelateria, located on Via Renai in the Oltrarno, is truly a hidden gem in a city that boasts molte buone gelaterie. During our visit to Florence in November, we enjoyed a mixed bag of weather. On the pleasantly warm days the gelato was the best we've ever had (including Siena, Rome, Venice, and many small villages throughout Tuscany). On the chilly overcast days we had the BEST hot chocolate. EVER. It was dark, sweet, and had the consistency of sludge. YES, sludge!! Because you want your hot chocolate to be so thick the spoon nearly stands up in the cup! There is a back room where you can sit and relax. It has an eclectic style of homey furniture, modern wall art, and not-too-loud jazzy music. (Shouldn't they be playing Vivaldi??) The staff is exceptionally friendly and solicitous. And the prices are fair. There is also an espresso bar. Do not miss this remarkable treat.

Wonderful ice cream that really shows how it should be done. Don't be fooled by the fluorescent piled high displays in the more commercial places! This stuff was the real deal. Great texture and superb tastes. We stumbled on it by chance and will be going back for more before we leave Florence in a few days. Plus, apparently we were the first customers in there new back room café area. Think they should have had a ribbon for us to cut really! It's all very shabby chic, with a comfortable varied mix of sofas, chairs and tables topped of with pretty decent music. Very friendly staff and very sensible prices! This place is looking to create itself a reputation and from what I saw it should succeed .

We were so lucky that this off-the-beaten-path gelateria was close to our hotel which was also a bit out of the way. We had gelato here 4 of our 5 days in Florence and it was the best gelato of our 11-day trip, including gelato we tried in 2 cities in Cinque Terre and one in Rome. The price is right too. I had chocolate with coconut every day. Sooooo good! I just wish that the fig gelato did not have almonds which I am allergic to, otherwise I would have loved to try that.

(You know it is especially cared for gelato because they do not expose the gelato to air but keep each flavor carefully covered.)
