One of the best gelato we've found in our 3 weeks in Italy. It had some unique twists on average flavors (cinnamon and orange), had a fresh flavor, and good texture. Sorry we just had one visit as we'd like to go back.

Loved the Nutella flavor and the dark chocolate flavor. Around the corner you have a beautiful view of Siena, so it is nice to eat your ice-cream there.
