“Not yet managed to try all the flavours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

No trip to Tuscany is complete without at least one visit to Gelateria Dondo. It certainly lives up to its' reputation. Over the years we have tried to sample all of the flavours on offer but have not yet managed it. It is very unusual not to have to queue up, even in November, but it is always worth the wait. Certainly a jewel in Tuscany's crown.

“Spoilt for choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

So many different flavours that I have never tried before..I settled for a scoop of saffron-almond-orange-honey (michelle) and ricotta-blueberry.. strangely this combo worked perfectly :) i wish i could have tried more!

“We liked it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

A right place to treat yourself with a very good ice-cream, but I would give priority to gelateria in Lavinio.

“Worth the queue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

A wide range of delicious gelato. Spoilt for choice, but finally opted for the local saffron, honey and pine nuts - rich, creamy and cooling. Served with a smile

“Best Gelato EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

Absolutely, hands down, the BEST! The flavours you can choose from are endless! And so creative! I think the amount of liquor in it is quite high as well. Wish I could have tried all the different kinds!
