“Lives up to its reputation”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Heard it was great and sure enough it was. We visited here several times over our 4 days in the area. Certainly some of the best Gelato we had in two weeks in Italy. Give it a try!

“It is closed in December”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

When I came to San Gimignano I wanted to taste from the well known ice cream, but it was closed.
The only thing I could do is to stare on the door of this Gelateria.
Most of the shops are closed in the winter, so I guess it is better to come in another season of the year to San Gimignano.

“most delicious ice cream in Italy!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

The taste is exactly the taste of the flavour like you eat the real thing!
amazing! No wonder there is always a long line! It's so good and the price is more than fair!

“Closed from November to February”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Went there in January 2013. Unable to rate the gelato because it was closed. It was a big disappointment for me that the famous gelato place in San Gimignano was closed from Nov to Feb. There was another gelato place in San Gimignano, which did not serve authentic gelato, so if you wanted gelato, you are stuck with 2nd rate stuff. Just beware that this place may be closed and the average rating was because they were closed and not because of the gelato.

“Sergio is wonderful!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Sergio's good humor is infectious, and so is his gelato. Try, just try, to choose only five flavors. They'll pile giant "sample" scoops into your bowl and you can just forget about wanting anything else to eat all day. Pistachio tastes like the nuts are still on the tree. Perhaps you, like me, didn't think pistachio pairs with deep chocolate? Wrong..it was heavenly when they ended up side by side. Just enjoy, as you cannot go wrong.
