Tried this gelato and loved all flavors but the chocolate was the best. What a pleasure to try it on with crema italiana. Go for it!

Although I am not imitated by signage, I have to admit that the gelato in this shop was pretty good about the best I ever had. Best in the world? Not sure.

Having spent a pleasant afternoon wandering around San Gimignano, I’d had a recommendation to try saffron ice cream. I tried this along with the pistachio ice cream. I’ve never had ice cream like it- very creamy and smooth with no ice crystals. During my stay...More

Don't you love it when two nearly side-by-side shops each say they're the best? dell'Olmo and Dondoli both make the claim. Having eaten nearly every flavor in both shops over a week (not really, but you get the idea), I say they are both right,...More
