Fantastic home made ice cream. They offer a good selection of dairy and non dairy ice cream's.

We tried the pistachio which had great flavour and creaminess.
The star of the show was the olive oil ice cream, made with olive oil, basil and black pepper. The flavours suited each other and worked incredibly well as an ice cream.

The service was friendly and we were offered different flavours to try and the prices were reasonable.Fully recommend.

The gelato was very good and compared favorably with all of the other gelato I tasted throught Italy. We had stopped in during a wine tasting bus tour and the gelato was a welcome respite. I would have given a better rating had the fellow behind the counter handed me the gelato as opposed to throwing it at me and others in line. It was almost comical.

This is my third week in Italy and each day I have made it almost a requirement to try gelato. This particular shop is in a smaller town, beautiful drive.

The service was tremendous, offering samples of everything (even without asking). I saw many flavors that were not offered on other shops. Every option was clearly marked "dairy" or "nondairy".

Fabulous ice cream and a wonderful friendly young lady (Francesca) behind the counter. We sampled a number of flavours and they were all good. We went for the coffee - hazelnut - and peanut butter - yummy! They also have a very interesting vanilla with rice mixed through the ice cream, it was marvellous too! We'll be back!

Our group of 10 visited this gelateria 4 times in 5 days on our recent trip to Tuscany. The ice cream is absolutely wonderful - creamy, incredibly flavourful, not sickeningly sweet and very light. The variety of flavours are perfect and I highly recommend the pistachio, hazelnut and cookie in particular. For those a bit more health conscious, the options with a red handled serving spoon were non diary and quite incredible as we didn't even notice the difference. Highly recommended!
