Line of people out the door but worth waiting for especially the pistachio!!! Lots of flavours to choose from, including unusual ones like saffron and also lavender and blackberry.

Tough claim to live up to - but it was enough to draw in a queue of about 40 people when we got there. There is no time to look and contemplate on which flavour you'd like to try as you feel the pressure of the 40-odd people waiting impatiently behind you for their gelato.

The gelato is smooth, creamy and a little sweeter than some others - it is good gelato but not the best I've eaten - that's debatable as everyone's palate differs. Still a must-try for all gelato lovers.

For those who like pistachio and nocchiola like me, this is definitely the best gelateria in the world. Totally recommended if you're in San Gemigliano!!!

If it's good enough for Jaimie O it's good enough for me to have at least once a day. Last time I visited there were lines out the door. Come off season the line around the windows full of gelato are more manageable, tiramisu and any of the berry flavors are favorites.

Well, as an ice-cream lover, and living in Tuscany, I wouldn't let it pass. I went to San Gimignano Just to taste the famous ice cream.
What I can say is that the gelato is really very good - and that's all. I probably have tasted other chocolat ice creams as good as that one, so I don't know if it deserves the title of "The Best Ice Cream in the World".
NB: Just make sure to go to the right gelateria. At the same piazza, on the other corner, there is another ice cream parlor claiming that their ice cream is "the best on the world".
