So you are already in one of the most picturesque, well preserved medieval towns in Tuscany, standing in the Piazza Della Cisterna--what could be better now than some of the best Gelato you have ever tasted! The Gelateria Dondoli is the place you are looking for--so take your pictures, then turn around, walk in, and try at least two flavors.... More

The Gelateria Dondoli is located in the Piazza Della Cisterna and makes, quite honestly, the best gelato I have ever tasted (and I have sampled gelato from many a gelateria throughout Italy). We sampled several flavors (too many, in fact) including passion fruit, blackberry, sour cherry (my favorite), cappuccino & rum and hazelnut. All were so delicious!! Highly recommend a... More

The best ice cream, I've tasted (and that's a lot). Whether you pick a traditional taste or you pick one of Dondolis own experiments, you can taste the flavor very clearly. Gelateria Dondoli is a major reason to return to San Gimignano. So this is our fourth visit.

You will know you are in the right place by the long line. Worth the wait! We sat in the courtyard and enjoyed the gelato. So good!

Long queues in hot sun were fully justified once we reached the counter and tried few flavours. We needed up eating few of them and all of them were fantastic. Recommended

The tiramisu gelato is so good you won't be able to stop eating it. Nothing touched this anywhere in Italy and I ate gelato all over the country.

We treated ourselves to a lot (too much) gelato in Italy and this was right up there with the best. Don't be dissuaded by the crowds, this really is excellent gelato. Flavours we had were the champagne, the lavender, and the rosemary recipes. If in San Gimignano then this is a must try - the perfect reward after climbing the... More
