A family-run gelato shop from Florence Italy. In addition to their signature gelato, Vivioli Gelateria will also serve traditional Italian panini, biscotti, espresso and tarts.
Type of Service:
Founded in 1932 by Raphael and his two brothers, Vivoli Gelateria started out as a dairy - at that time, it was not easy to find raw materials such as milk, eggs and sugar and there were no gelato machines and freezers. After World War II, technology enabled the brothers to follow their passion and produce gelato every day - a far cry from the early recipes that relied on barrels filled with ice and snow from the nearby mountains to keep their concoctions frozen. According to Silvana, the gelato at Vivoli is made with fresh, top-quality ingredients using the exact same recipes from the original shop. The artisans plan to use local and seasonal products, with cocoa powder, hazelnut and pistachio imported from Italy.
