“Not the world's best but pretty good.”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

I tried this gelato and it was good but I wouldn't name it the world's best... Of course is Avery popular spot so be prepared to make some line. I had the Mascarpone and yes it was very good. Like any other gelato in Italy. The whole town is charming,

“Impossible to resist”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

You will be in trouble to select one gelato to buy since there are too many kinds available and one look "nicer" than the other. Then you will taste a gelato that you will never forget! Be prepare to come back, because you will, even if you stay just a couple hours in San Gimignano. We stayed 5 days and it was a "torture" day after day!

“They say it's the best ice cream in the world.....IT IS!!!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Well the title says it all. This really is some of the best ice-cream I've ever tasted in the world. The selection is VAST and it is really luxurious ice cream. The service was perfunctory; obviously well used to catering to us tourists. But it didnt matter, the quality of the ice cream made up for it. Good value too!

“Fantastic ice cream”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Just had to try an ice cream from The Worlds Best Ice Cream Shop! Amazing choice of flavours and sizes, prices comparable to everywhere else I thought. The queue was not too long only a couple of minutes to be served but you need that to decide which flavour you want! I had fig, it was superb!
