In 2013 I spent six weeks in Italy, based primarily in Siena. While I was there I tried a LOT of gelato between Florence and Rome, and I hit nearly every gelato joint in Siena -- most more than once. Several friends of mine raved about this place, and over time it became our go-to gelateria. The gelato here has a depth of flavor, and a richness of texture, that somehow tops the other places; and trust me, there is no shortage of good places to get gelato in Siena. The owners and workers seem simply to love what they do (and why not? They make and serve gelato!), and I like to believe that therein lies the difference. They get excited about introducing new flavors, and they wait patiently while you work through the process of deciding which ones to try. By the way, that place in San Gimignano that boasts the "best gelato in the world"? Dimentichi.
