“A treasure in the middle of Miami Beach”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Waking into Ferli Gelateria & Coffee shop is like finding a small treasure in the middle of the Miami Beach confusion. The homemade gelato is great and the person working the counter was fantastic. Taste a few of the different flavors and have a cup of very strong espresso. Prices are moderate (low for the beach) and selections are many.

“Frozen deserts and cold service”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We went to Ferli's because it was convenient to our hotel and we had a groupon discount card - and we love ice cream. Our first try was Thursday afternoon. The handmade sign in the window said, "closed Thursday for remodelling - sorry for the inconvience," although there was no sign of any work being conducted. We returned on Saturday, the place was open but the surly server gave the impression that he was annoyed by the imposition of customers wanting a cup of gelato.

We would not have returned at all except we had credit remaining on our groupon. We tried on Sunday and the handmade sign in the window said,"back in 2 minutes." We waited more than 15 minutes and watched other potential customers try the locked door and walk away. Eventually someone showed up and opened the door. The server was unapologetic and sullen.

The shop itself is fine and in a great location. It would do well to keep regular business hours. The gelato is OK, too but not nearly as good as 4D.
