No doubt their ice cream's good but you can find higher quality in some other Florentine gelaterie. Service and atmosphere are all right, nothing special. All in all this place is overrated, thoughI think they still deserve four stars out of five.

My wife and I decided to try this out purely on the trip advisor writings. And we were amazed at the flavour. She had the raspberry (Lampone) and found it to taste as fresh as fresh raspberrys from the markets. I had the tiramisu and some caramello flavour. The tiramisu i had was the best tiramisu flavour i have ever had. I will be going back to try out some other flavours before I leave

Went there twice during our stay in Florence. It is a small little place which serves gelato along with some pastries and wonderful cappuccino's. it was, by far, the best gelato we have tasted in Italy. Would highly recommend you visit at least once.

Vivoli is well known. It does have good gelato and many flavors. I find, though, that it is too commercial and gives such small portions for the price. There are others that have great gelato and many choices but are not so frugal in there portions. At one time, perhaps, Vivoli was the best, but now there are other great Gelato places that are also more genorous.

We read about this place on tripadvisor, and actually went out of our way to find it. What a huge disappointment! The gelato was good, though not great, but the awful service took away from the whole experience. The three ladies behind the counter could not have been more rude. They acted liked we were inconveniencing them by entering their restaurant and asking for ice cream. Definitely would not recommend.
