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.

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!

Gelateria Kopa Kabana is excellent. The flavors of gelato are incredible, and everything tastes great. The gelato is made fresh, and it is obvious the amount of love and attention that goes into the gelato. The staff is very kind also. This is a GREAT value - far better than Grom. 1.80 for a small cup or cone and a... More

I went there based on the recommendation from my B&B Duomo. They said that here is the best icecream in town. I couldn't agree more. Went there everyday. Amarena and choco-cherry are my favourites (because I love cherries) but everything tastes so good. The taste is fresh is natural, the portions are big and the prices lower than the competition....

Kopakabana is off the main tourist sites but well worth finding. It has superb gelato and great service along with several creative flavors like petali di rosa and extra dark chocolate.
