Nice ice cream

It's a nice gelato rica near the place of Siena, the staff is nice and the panini was good and the ice cream was delicious.

We stopped here to dip our tongues with some Italian gelatos and cappuccinos and we were not disappointed! Awesome food, drinks and service. Recommended if you're touring Siena.

We decided to take a short trip over to Siena for the evening from where we were staying in Florence.

I don't understand the other comments. The location was impeccable (right next to the Piazzo del Campo) and the service was outstanding. As a family we particularly loved Giusy, Redi and Ernesto.

The sight is good, but expensive, unfriendly service and we had dirty glasses. The spoon with the peanuts was sticky. Cant say nothing about the food, we didnt order it.
