It's real the best in the italy! You can feel fruit fresh, the flavor is perfect and consistent is wonderful. Perfect place. It is a little bit crowded, but nothing impossible. One problem is just in cash! The price is good.

When we saw the line, we almost decided not to try this gelateria. Thankfully, the line moved much faster than we expected. Now that I've tried their gelato, I'd wait much longer. There is a reason they've won awards. It really is the BEST!

Dondoli is the better known of the two gelato shops facing each other at the downhill end of San Gimignano's Piazza della Cisterna. This one's famous for its saffron/pine nut flavor (a San Gimignano speciality), but if you can imagine a flavor, they've probably got...More
