Silvana Vivoli inherited the family business from her grandfather, Raffaello, who opened up shop on this narrow street in 1930. Every day, with her brother-in-law and two kitchen aides, she makes from scratch the creamy gelato for which her small store is famous. Though the most popular flavors are chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, the rich chocolate hazelnut (nocciola) and the rice (riso) flavors are worth at least a taste. Silvana recommends combining at least two to four flavors in a single cup, which you can devour while people watching from the steps nearby Santa Croce .
Very close to Santa Croce - absolutely delicious gelato in every flavor imaginable - highly recommended! You can order the gelato in a cone or a cup - choose your size at the register, pay, and then hand the receipt to the person behind the gelato counter - then choose one or more flavors - enjoy!
The best gelato in the world!!! I love the pera caramellata (caramelized pear), and the nocciola (hazelnut) puts it over the top. Find a hotel near the Piazza Santa Croce and walk to it every evening, it'll make you feel less guilty...
