Sergio Dondoli and his wife Franka serve the best Ice Cream in Italy. a must try is the black Olive ice, the rasberry/rosmarin flavour or Michelle ( created for the visit of wife of the US president ). Compliments , great ice cream.

Great ice creams which we had every day in San Gimignano. Fabulous flavours and great ingredients (eg. lots of nuts in the Nocciolo) The queues were long during the day, but there was no problem in the evening and they stay open quite late. The staff are very helpful and even gave me a taster of an olive ice cream... More

We were told by our tour guide that this place had the best gelatos, not to be missed. The award winning Gelateria's gelatos were flavorful, smooth and the temperature was perfect. We had chocolate, stracciatella and strawberry, all really good. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The owner stayed outside to greet & took photos with the customers.

Best gelati we have had in Italy... so far! Some really original flavours in there (like saffron creme or raspberry and rosemary), and the usual classics, but my goodness it was fantastic! So smooth and creamy and the flavours are to die for. Seriously good value as well. Do not walk past - you must got in and try some!

Or heaven in a cup. Completely out of the way of the regular tourist route and we consider ourselves super lucky that the driver suggested a nearby restaurant to eat florentine steak so yum too. But definitely make the hike up to this gelato shop :)

The flavours of gelato here are amazing! Loved the pink grapefruit with sparkling wine and the raspberry/rosemary blend. Both were so refreshing- can't wait to try the Grand Marnier/chocolate blend- yum!
