Wow! What a place! The best gelato ever! I had raspberry and rosemary, my wife tried the pistachio and both were wonderful. On a bright sunny morning nothing could be better!

When first walking through the village, the line was so long, we went for a wandering around San Gimignano and upon returning we're lucky to find no lines - the gelato was amazing - waffle cones with chocolate and nuts, I have the chocolate and hazelnut and strawberry, absolutely amazing

The icecream was highly recommended to us and we were certainly not disappointed. A lovely selection of highly unusual flavours and at a reasonable price. The mango was lovely as was the saffron icecream. MMMMMmmmmm.

There was so much to chose from! It was 5 Euro for 5 flavours (way cheaper than many other places) and they really heaped the cones.

This Gelateria has won world competitions. The chocolate is amazing. The owner is very friendly and the place is packed all the time. A must stop - even if you aren't an ice cream fan.
