This is absolutely the best gelato around. The cioccolato fondente is transcendent, plus they make other fantastic flavors, all there in the shop, including the standards and interesting and different combinations too, such as an almond cinnamon flavor. Their prices are even reasonable, falling on...More

A bit away from the crowd of central Sienna, this small shop is a nice discovery. The real Italian gelato. One of the best ciocolatto I had in Italy. The taste is refined, may be not enough pronounced for some (nocciola taste is not as...More

We found this gelateria after reading the reviews and were so pleased we did. I tried the amaretto and cinnamon and my husband had the chocolate fondant, both with crunchy cherry. The chocolate fondant was the most intense chocolate ice cream we've ever had. This...More

This is a great place to stop in for a gelato break. There are many varieties to choose from and it is all delicious. They also have chocolate dipped cones. 3.50 euro for chocolate dipped cone with a big scoop- well worth it!

I've tried at least 15 gelato places on this trip, and this was definitely one of the best! The gelato is made with natural ingredients and the flavor is absolutely divine. The texture is on the softer side, which I prefer. Highly recommended! Must try!

One of the best ice creams (hazelnuts & nuttela) I've eaten, it's worth it to walk from the center only to go here!

Six of us had five different kinds of gelato. All were outstanding. Mixed berry the favorite, but Carmel and black Cherry were also great. A little pricey, but excellent quality.

Certainly good ice cream. We were not as enthusiastic as some of the 5* reviewers. Not a "wow" (maybe we are more spoiled with good gelato in Sydney that we thought). Thumbs up for vegan-friendly soy-milk ice cream though, that was a plus for us.
