Everyone will be happy at this place. The fruit flavors really taste like fruit. Chocolate is so dark and yummy. Pistachio so good! We’ve been going every day on our vacation. Lots of flavors to choose from.More

Very grateful for the TripAdvisor reviews on this one. We nearly didn’t go in, because it doesn’t look great from the outside. However, we were very surprised to find varied flavours of delicious gelato. Being in Siena, you have to accept the tourist prices (...More
