Excellent gelato. Try a unique flavour like the saffron and pine nut! Such a delicious treat. The lines can get long so grab some gelato if there's no line when you pass by the shop. All it takes is one tour bus coming through San...More

Easily the best gelato we had in Italy, lots of choice in terms of flavours and very friendly and quick service! Would definitely recommend anyone who is in San Gimignano to visit this award winning Gelateria.

When visiting San Gimignano, the stop at Gelateria Dondoli is a must! They serve the best ice cream in the world. Worth waiting in line, because you will be surprised by the quality. They also offer vegan ice creams.

This Gelateria has won the best gelato in the world a few times over, so the queue is worth the wait. Challenge your sense with unusual and delicious flavour pairings, for gelato like you’ve never tasted before. Enjoy!

I don’t usually eat gelato in cold weather but I couldn’t resist. The zabaglione with vinsanto and the Amedei dark chocolate were amazing. Not too sweet, wonderful texture. Chocolate is so easy to get wrong. I’ve had it too bitter, not bitter enough, too waxy...More

When you visit San Gimignano you can't walk pass this gelateria as it's always full. I had saffron, ricotta with blueberries and Italian garden flavours, all excellent. Don't get the usual vanilla or chocolate as you can get that anywhere, get something different :)

This little gelateria has won the title of the Best Gelato in the World several times and for good reason! Try the Santa Fina, a delightful blend of honey and pine nuts or the Vin Santo, which tastes exactly like the post dinner libation, or...More
