Stopped by Gelateria dell'Olmo after trying the other gelateria in the plaza— both claiming they had the best Gelato in Italy. Olmo had a great variety of flavors and a welcoming staff. Because of wonderful texture and great flavor, this Gelato was one of the...More

Stopped for a quick bite and a glass of wine. Staff is OK, not rude but not super polite, service not fast but not extremely slow. Tried wild boar fettuccine and ravioli with creamy sauce and walnuts. Both pasta over-cooked and the wild boar sauce...More

On the terrace, in the corner, we had some shade. We ordered a very nice caffe freddo and some cantucci cookies. Nice drink and not to expensive. You can watch people passing by (busses and busses full are dropped here).

This gelato store has unofficially crowned itself the worlds best gelato. Note that the offical best is just a few steps away. If you're not one for titles and queues , then this is the stop for you. Plenty of choice, good service and TASTY!...More

Located on the first corner of the main square of San Gimignano. Not a huge selection of flavours, but in this case, quality over quantity. Chocolate, Mango and Kinder Egg flavour were a real hit with my children. This place was recommended by a family...More
