Best pistachio gelato ever!

This was by far the best pistachio gelato I have had in many years and from all places I went in Italy, Kopakabana in Siena was the best in price but obviously in taste too. My friend had the mango one and she also loved it.

We walked past this gelato place and was surprised to find such a wide range of variety available! You can ask to try if you want something new. I had strawberry and coco and both of them tasted excellent. My friend had chocolate and pistachio and she was also happy about it. This street wasn't very busy so you can... More

Tried four flavor and all were sub par. Cream was icy, chocolate was fine, though not as deep as I like. Amarena was too candy like and also lacked the creaminess. Too bad.

This is one of the best ice creams we had in Siena. Perfect relation of value/money. Just 2 euros per cup with 3 balls of ice cream. Also, a lot of flavours.

We were walking through Siena and we saw this place with a certificate by tripadvisor. The ice creams were almost melted. We took 4 different flavor and every one was not so good. The tastes seemed "not right" or not that (pistachio was practically almond). Mint is color green/blue and wasnt definitely a good mint. Seemed made with just sirup... More

Tried the gelateria after being enticed by rave reviews. I tried yogurt, fragola, and fondente (chocolate). Yogurt and fondente were indeed very good, but fragola did not taste fresh. They allow you to try flavours and I should have done this first. I also sampled coffee (ok) and pistachio (very good). They also have some unique flavours. Will I come... More

Arriving in Siena in the baking sun, we had to buy some ice cream. And fortunately this was one of the first we came by. We thought we already had very good ice cream but this place is certainly one of the best you will find.

Stayed in Siena for a month this year and came back regularly to Kopacabana, having discovered it last year. Located in via dei Rossi on the way to the Basilica of San Francesco. 30 flavours on offer daily. Many staples available every day but also a turnover of flavours on a daily basis. Quality and taste consistently good across a... More

If you wanna taste true italian ice-cream, with a great variety, that changes every day, this is the best place to go in Siena.

Found this place after a recommendation from a guide book. We had a tub with two flavours in for 2.20 Euros and it was delicious. It was a few minutes walk from the centre, but it was well worth it. Would have given the service 5 stars, but the the staff couldn't speak any English so we had to point... More
