Heavenly

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

Despite this little parlour can be found in the city-centre, the price is competitive and the service is warm. You should choose a cone and each cone will have a different number of ice cream. For a 2.2 EUR one I had two different type of flavours. The selection is quite big though it is hard to identify that what... More

If you are chocoholic...don't miss the chocolate fondante....heaven. Definitely worth the 5 minute walk. Then stroll the neighborhood.

Simply the best! I've been here multiple times and never lets me down. Some of the other 'galaterie' thin out their ice to sell more but not here. Best in town

Three flavors only cost 2.2 euro! And all the flavors I ordered were awesome! Torta al limone, Yogurt e Nutella and Fragola...oh my.... And the portion was big! If you pass over, you must give it a try! My friends strongly recommended me this gelateria because of their fruits flavors they'd tried were all good.

We are averaging just under 2 gelati each day over the course of our two week tour of Italy, and I think that this may have been my favorite of the trip! The Fragola and Cioccolato went so perfectly together, and complimented each other's sweet, bitter, tart, and creamy flavors. Dad got pistachio and Fragola- not my ideal combo, but... More

It seems that the number of gelaterias (ice cream shops) in Siena is completely disproportionate to its relatively small size, more so when you only take the centrum into account. This is definitely the gelateria that the locals frequent. The tourists usually end up in one of the central ones, closer to the Duomo. This one is located in one... More
