Best pistacchio gelato we had during our 2week trip in Italy. Its color is brownish (and not green which is a good indicator how good a pistacchio is) and the portion is more generous than the other gelaterias. This easily stole the top 1 rank...More

Very good gelato. Rich and creamy. Portions were large. A small cone or dish was 2 euros. The lemon and strawberry were delicious! Not too far from the Duomo.

Went to have a gelato and found these to be the best I have tried in Siena. Also about half the cost as those in the Piazza. Service was good and the selection was excellent. Recommended

In a word, YUM! Wandering about the medieval city, my feet drew me to the best gelato I’ve enjoyed. Who cares about calories? I was in heaven! Like the proverbial kid in a candy store, I couldn’t make a decision—I wanted them all! Piazza del...More

It’s a bit of walk up hill from the main piazza but well worth it. The mango, coffee, amerone and chocolate were all very good. We ate here last year and were pleased to be able to go back as it’s very good gelato.

Oh I miss my daily gelato... Pistachio is my favorite! Worth a try! Even though there are plenty of options for gelato in Siena, this place is the best by far... My husband enjoyed the chocolate. I will go back to Siena, and will definitely...More

Description
C'era una volta una vecchia latteria in via San Pietro a Siena, una latteria con le piastrelle alle pareti e i contenitori di latte fresco. Qualcuno si ricorda "Tonina" la signora che gestiva quella latteria. Qui, oltre al latte fresco che all'epoca si comprava portando la bottiglia di vetro da casa, Tonina faceva la panna montata. E la sua era la panna montata piu buona della citta. Sembra una storia antichissima, e invece e una storia di pochi decenni fa quando ancora erano in vigore le lire, i televisori erano in bianco e nero (a colori c'erano pochi), i computer non erano diffusi i telefonini non esistevano proprio. Oggi la vecchia latteria e una gelateria, anzi e la prima "social gelateria" a Siena. I tempi sono cambiati e le nuove tecnologie hanno rinnovato il modo di comunicare cosi anche degustare il gelato e un'esperienza che puo essere condivisa con gli amici in modo virtuale e divertente. Ma Fabio e Francesco che sono esperti di dolcezza, hanno un cuore romantico e per il loro locale hanno voluto mantenere il nome con cui generazioni di bambini ormai cresciuti hanno chiamato quel luogo dove c'era la panna di Tonina. Una sorta di omaggio ai tanti sacrifici e agli altrettanti buoni propositi che i bambini di allora facevano per meritarsi un cono di quella panna...
