Conveniently located in a corner plot just off the main square, this offered a good selection of gelato with all the usual flavours represented. Prices weren’t cheap at €6.50 for two scoops, but you did get quite a generous portion for that. Between us we...More

Just don't go and it's by far the most ridiculously tasting gelato. 8 euros for the cone is crazy and not worth it

We've never tasted worse Italian ice-cream than here. We also paid 14,50 euro for 3 scoops. It's a total rip-off and a tourist trap! Never buy your ice-cream at this place.

Really tasty ice cream, good selection of flavours. However the prices are ridiculous. I’ve never paid so much for an ice cream anywhere else in Italy.

So we saw the 2 stars this gelateria currently has before we decided we were going to take our shot anyway because we were too tired of walking aimlessly. That was a mistake! We were utterly shocked by the insane amount of gelato we got;...More

I agree with the other negative reviews; too expensive (14,50 euro for 2 icecreams) and the worst icecream I ever had in Italy!! Avoid this tourist trap!!!!

Terrible prices (almost looking like a candid camera). 6,5 Euro for a cup with only one taste? No thanks! We ran away immediately. In addiction the service too were not nice at all and quite a bit arrogant too. Avoid!

First, I’d like to say I enjoyed having a fresh ice cream after lovely walks around Siena! But, I’d like to point out that “Brivido” uses its prime location to rip off all the customers! Around my country house near Monteriggioni in Tuscany, the prices...More

Egregiously overpriced, not quality/good gelato and service is meh. There's literally 3 Gelaterias in a stones throw that are better, but if you really want the best, keep walking down Via di Citta (headed South by SouthWest) and turn left on Via S. Pietro. You'll...More

Just walked away from this shop with a bill of euros 30.50 for 4 ice-creams. It was busy and we couldn’t see the prices but never imagined ice-cream could be so expensive (I initially thought the very unhelpful staff had said 13.50 euros which is...More
