Perhaps THE best ice cream in a town of a thousand gelaterias!

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... read more

My husband and I were walking around Siena and came across this place on our way back from the Basilica of St Francis. The choice of flavours were both overwhelming yet looked tempting to try all. We both chose a flavour or two, ate it immediately and didn't regret our find! Very inexpensive compared to the other places we came... More

My husband and I stumbled across this little gelateria. Incredible. They make some interesting flavours - I had Jamaica (chocolate rum & pepper!) And strudel. Yum. Cant recommend highly enough.

When I'm in Siena, I make it a point to go here every night. It's the best gelato in Siena, and one of the least expensive places. It was recommended to me by a local, and I'm hooked. Only a very short walk off the main drag, Via di Citta, and well worth it.

This place is a little out of the way compared to all the other ice cream shops crammed into the tourist area. But if you want really good gelato make the effort to find this place. You won't regret it! We had the coffee ice cream and it was amazing!

A friend of mine in Siena recommended this gelateria, which is a short walk from the main tourist spots. I was a bit frightened by the name, but we were glad we went. Note: they do not accept credit cards/bancomat; bring your euros.

First off: NEW ADDRESS!! Via Rossi 10, just down the road from the old place! Full of locals which is always a good sign. Gelato was absolutely delicious. Definitely in the top 5 we've experienced in tuscany and also the cheapest! What a great deal. Don't miss this gelateria during your stay or visit to Siena. It's even located so... More

The gelateria is slightly away from the main square in Siena, but absolutely worth the detour to get there. We tried the pistachio (creamy, nutty and rich) and the strawberry (refreshing and fruity) - both absolutely delicious. In 10 days of travelling around Italy, this ice cream was at or very near the top of our list of favourites!!

We sadly indulged every night in Gelato while discovering Tuscany. Although all were good, one taste of this and we were amazed at the difference. They speak English very well and it is absolutely worth the wait! Delicious!
