The sometimes long line does not lie!!!!!! It does move quickly thanks to the ladies who dole out the delicious gelato. Which flavors???? That is strictly a personal choice.....but everyone tasted was just perfect. Thank you.

Sergio Dondoli is a national treasure of Italy. He is the willie wonka of gelato. A master of his craft and so friendly and enthusiastic. Our family did a 2 hour gelato making class with Sergio and his daughter that was absolutely amazing. If you...plan of going to Tuscany and visiting San Gimignano, I highly recommend a visit.More

We went to San Gimignano as tourists and of course, we had to try the best complimented ice cream there. It's creamy, rich in flavour and refreshing. Definitely recommend getting it, it's so worth it and the price is normal, which isn't usual for touristic...places.More

Had ice cream at this place and loved it. While the long line is at another nearby shop, This place is where it's at. We enjoyed the chocolate, amarena cherry and mango. All excellent.

There was a long but fast moving line at Gelateria Dondoli when a man beside me started a conversation. He was from Philadelphia and had never had gelato before but was told it was better than ice cream, something he strongly doubted. The efficient serving...staff had our orders completed in seconds and we were out the door and into the square to rejoin our respective families. I approached him. "So, what do you think?" "Who needs ice cream," he said. "I've found gelato!." Gelateria Dondoli proclaims itself the World Gelato Champion, and I now know why!More

Lemon sorbet excellent, the pistachio is top in my opinion, chocolate and cream very good but not outstanding. Big queue, worth tasting.
