If you have ever been Florence, Italy, you may have heard of Vivoli Gelateria. It was the only food place mentioned in National Geographic’s City Guide to Florence. I think that means it must be pretty good! This is a family-run shop and this will be their second location and the first not in Italy. It is now open at The Landing, the newest neighbourhood addition to the new Disney Springs.

It was founded in 1932 by Raphael and his two brothers, Vivoli Gelateria actually started out as a dairy. Technology slowly progressed and then the brothers were able to make gelato.

Their gelato is made with fresh, top of the line ingredients. They will use the exact same recipes from their original shop. They do plan to use local and seasonal products, with cocoa powder, hazelnut and pistachio imported from Italy. So now we know it will be as close to authentic Italian gelato as we can get here in the states.
