THE place for icecream in Siena

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

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.
