We can see why this was World Champion Gelato for several years. Such unique flavors. Friendly and prompt service. Stop by when you are in San Gimignano!

On a day visit to the city, we took the recommendation of many and got gelato here. Service was efficient and my favs of the 8 we tried between the 4 of us were pistachio (not too sweet which I prefer) and an amaretto? cherry...and rum raisinMore

We signed up for this gelato experience, not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Sergio shared his wealth of experience and passion for his all natural gelato. We had a very entertaining and educational time…and we got to sample lots of the gelato...we made! It was truly an incredible experience. Sergio is quite an interesting character, and he makes the whole experience so much fun. We’re glad we signed up!More

We have eaten gelato all over Italy - this place was the best! Line was long, but it moved quickly. They have won several world competitions!

We were told this was a "must do" while in San Gimignano. It's a small place in the city square and the line was crazy long. The line moves fast only because they rush you in and rush you out. You don't really get to...see what the options are until you are inside and by then you are forced to make a very quick decision. Really good gelato but the whole experience doesn't really live up to the hype.More

Very creamy ice-cream with great taste. I liked their unusual combinations such as rosemary and raspberry or blueberry with cottage cheese. There is usually big queue, but it goes fast as there are several personnel serving ice-cream and also one personnel is giving people in...queue a QR code for the page with their offer. Go there, taste it!More

I eead here that this is the place to get gelato. And I wasn't dissapointed. They serve a wide variety of flavours, all home made, at reasonable cone prices. Be prepared to wait in line :)

There usually is a rather long queu for this place but it's worth the wait. The service is quick (so the passes quickly) and the icecream is amazing

At the corner if the plaza, the world’s best ice cream is correct. There are so many flavors but I always get the pistachio while in Italy.
