“Delicious sorbet”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I know this is a chain having also been to one in Florence but this is good delicious sorbet served in a very clean shop and served up by helpful staff. There are a range of sorbets and ice creams to choose from and I can recommend both the vanilla ice cream and mango sorbet. The latter was some of the best I have tasted! Worth going in if you are passing by and queues are not too long. It is popular with all age groups!

“Excellent ice cream”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The first clue that this is an excellent ice cream shop is the long line of people... Even though there are several other options around. Everything we tried was delicious, fresh and creamy. Perfect.

“Our best ice-cream in Siena”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Grom has a large selection of great self-made ice-creams, with an emphasis on organic ingredients. Even within Siena (where you have gelato artigianale at many places) it was a highlight for us.

“Grom is unbelievably overrated”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Grom advertises "Gelato as it used to be." But if this is how gelato used to be, I'm glad it has since changed. It's not that the gelato is THAT bad, it's just that it's overpriced considering its taste. If you want to skip the line and have a better gelato experience (in terms of taste and value), try Gelateria Kopa Kabana on Via San Pietro 20. I honestly don't know what all the fuss is about for Grom.

“Great Gelato”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This place is always busy. Excellent selection of flavors. I had a pear gelato which had an incredibly rich flavor. Other flavors were excellent especially the different nuts and chocolates.
