Walking be you see the long lines and think that it must be really good. It is a really good rip off. Gelato is ok and nothing special but what you really remember is the price. I could not find where they posted the prices...More

This place is one of the top two gelato shops of our ten day Italy trip. Definitely some of the best gelato we had. Flavor and texture were sublime; we took our gelato a few steps away and sat out on the Piazzo del Campo...More

The selection of gelatos on offer was great and the presentation in the counter was a lovely sight. The size of the cone and serving of gelato was very big and was decorated with 2 wafers. It was the perfect way to end our Tuscan...More

Brivido Gelateria is a typical example of average touristic restaurant with unnecessarily expensive prices and low quality. It is close to Piazza del Campo, so you may be trapped by the location and tell yourself it would be a good idea to buy an ice...More

€10 for a small (tall) cone but the equivalent of a triple scoop... Very worth the cost for a yummy treat on a hot and sunny day. We sampled Mango; Pistachio; Coffee; and Mint Chocolate. 😊

When I was in Italy we had gelato a lot. I was looking for a quick snack before we went on the tour and saw this gelato place. It was amazing. The best gelato I ever had. It was huge which makes sense why it...More

6.50 euro for a cup of gelato is expensive, but they have some really amazing and unique flavours. We especially enjoyed the hazelnut, macadamia nut and tiramisu. They only allow you to taste 1 or 2 flavours per person, though.
