In the very centre of San Gimigniano you'll see the long queue.. it's a queue to 'gelateria', the most famous in the world. On the walls there are photos of all possible celebrities of the world. And ice-cream, of course, it's really worth to spend time in the queue and to resist the chaos inside the cafe. Must visit!

So this should be the best ice cream around and is award winning and world renouned.
And it's good, but not the best. There are better out there in Italy and other countries as well.

Italian ice cream is legit the best. Went here with my wife and had chocolate and stracciatella. The chocolate was fantastic, the stracciatella was good as well.

We visited San Giminganno in 2016, and went to get a gelato at Dondoli, the queue was too long ( I don't do queues') - so this year (2017) we stopped by again, the queue was not too long, service was fast - ice creams were great so we went back and had another :-) . The gelato here was half the price we had paid in Sienna and significantly better quality.

The ice is good (but certainly not the best ever), but the service is in one word awful. Very arrogant and not friendly. Not worth queing for.
