“WOW”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Getting bad gelato in Italy is almost impossible and Dondoli was the BEST of all. Inovative flavors that scream nature & freshness were the rule. From delicate Passion Fruit to my wife's always favorite ( chocolate anything) the results were amazing. There is indeed a reason Sergio is a "world champion"

“Could be the best gelato in Italy”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Ok, my son has had 35 different flavors of gelato from 18 different establishments in the past 12 days, so he's a bit of an authority (even if only 14 years old). This one is the best.
The fruit flavors are very unique and the fruit comes through like fresh pineapple, banana, etc.

“Excelent Gelato! Ask for the flavor you want, not all are in display.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

It did live up to my expectations, great gelato. Not all flavors are in display so if you don't see what you want, ask them. Rare flavors like gorgonzola, are not as popular as strawberry but, you would be missing in trying something really great if you don't ask.
The restaurant to the left (as you face the plaza leaving the gelateria), with the umbrellas, is quite good too.

“No better gelato!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went to Gelateria Dondoli on a visit to San Gimagnano because we saw a sign out the front that said World Champion - we were not disappointed! We spent another 12 days in Italy searching for another Gelateria this good and nothing came close. A must if you are visiting the town. Unique and delicious flavours.

“So good!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We enjoyed gelato from this wonderful place twice in one day. The orange chocolate was the best. The lines are long but they move so quickly. There is a menu just inside the door to the left. Choose your flavor here instead of trying to eye the flavors in the cooler.
