Great Italian ice. A lot of variables to choose between. Nice presentation in the box. Unfortunately not possible to taste the ice before buying - perhaps due to many customers in line.

I won't eat gelato unless it's very, very good (so many calories). This was the best and my husband and I had gelato here 3/3 nights we were in Montalcino. Perque no? ! It's the best.

There are so many gelato places in Italy that its hard to pick one that stands out. This was a very good shop, but the sign outside mentions yogurt and I'm not sure what that was about. Cherry and the Tiramisu were top notch.

We always skip dessert when dining out in Montalcino-so we can head over to the "Why Not?"! Tiny place, with a few outdoor tables-we have always been able to sit down and savor our delicious gelato. The flavors are delicious-we are big fans of dark chocolate and pistachio, but so many others to try. It such a local place, lots... More

It's quite simple and as the title says, this is the best place in town to grab a gelato. The prices are great, and the flavours excellent. Highly recommended after a steep walk around town.
