So many flavors of gelato in this shop and the price can't be beat in Siena. Good gelato, a local favorite. It's off the beaten path which is why it's the best bang for your buck in Siena.

Read in a guide book that this was the best in town...not so! Just average with so many places available. Not on main street and NOT worth seeking out!

This was by far the best pistachio gelato I have had in many years and from all places I went in Italy, Kopakabana in Siena was the best in price but obviously in taste too. My friend had the mango one and she also loved it.

We walked past this gelato place and was surprised to find such a wide range of variety available! You can ask to try if you want something new. I had strawberry and coco and both of them tasted excellent. My friend had chocolate and pistachio and she was also happy about it. This street wasn't very busy so you can... More

Tried four flavor and all were sub par. Cream was icy, chocolate was fine, though not as deep as I like. Amarena was too candy like and also lacked the creaminess. Too bad.

This is one of the best ice creams we had in Siena. Perfect relation of value/money. Just 2 euros per cup with 3 balls of ice cream. Also, a lot of flavours.

We were walking through Siena and we saw this place with a certificate by tripadvisor. The ice creams were almost melted. We took 4 different flavor and every one was not so good. The tastes seemed "not right" or not that (pistachio was practically almond). Mint is color green/blue and wasnt definitely a good mint. Seemed made with just sirup... More

Tried the gelateria after being enticed by rave reviews. I tried yogurt, fragola, and fondente (chocolate). Yogurt and fondente were indeed very good, but fragola did not taste fresh. They allow you to try flavours and I should have done this first. I also sampled coffee (ok) and pistachio (very good). They also have some unique flavours. Will I come... More

Arriving in Siena in the baking sun, we had to buy some ice cream. And fortunately this was one of the first we came by. We thought we already had very good ice cream but this place is certainly one of the best you will find.
