Best pistacchio gelato we had during our 2week trip in Italy. Its color is brownish (and not green which is a good indicator how good a pistacchio is) and the portion is more generous than the other gelaterias. This easily stole the top 1 rank...More

Delicious gelato, handmade with care every day. When we are in Siena we often visit twice a day. The pistachio is our favorite but all the flavors we have tried are delicious and the portions generous. So much better than all the trendy and overpriced...More

Very good gelato. Rich and creamy. Portions were large. A small cone or dish was 2 euros. The lemon and strawberry were delicious! Not too far from the Duomo.

Went to have a gelato and found these to be the best I have tried in Siena. Also about half the cost as those in the Piazza. Service was good and the selection was excellent. Recommended

It’s a bit of walk up hill from the main piazza but well worth it. The mango, coffee, amerone and chocolate were all very good. We ate here last year and were pleased to be able to go back as it’s very good gelato.
