You'll see the long queue in front of the Gelateria Dondoli at Piazza della Cisterna, but never give up. You really appreciate by yourself at the end of this ice cream experience.

We were on a tour of the city and our tour guide recommended we go to Dondoli and get a gelato. Wow what a treat. They have photos on the wall of some of the famous people that have eaten there. The servers are most friendly and when we walked in we were greeted with a very friendly bonjourno! We both had to have chocolate so we got the $6 Euro Ghirardelli chocolate. It was so good. make sure you give them a try when you visit.

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 it. Liked their ice cream (did you know gelato has less fat than ice cream?) very much.

Its a known fact that this Gelateria Dondeli serves the best ice cream in the world.
Upon reaching San Gimignano, its not that difficult to find this shop, its the only shop with huge queue of people!
When my turn came, i was spoiled for choices....all ice creams looked tempting, upon tasting a few, I went for mango with pischatio flavour, and the taste.....cant describe in words!!!!
The only regret was they dont have any oulets in Florence city, so we were unable to eat it again.

If you are in San Gimignano, you MUST try this place!

Out of several gelato shops in San Gimignano Dondoli was definitely the busiest.

They have unique flavors I have not seen anywhere else including pink grapefruit with sparking wine and grand mariner chocolate. This happened to be the combination I chose. They also offer a cheese and nut flavor and some other unique options.

Prices were similar to other shops and the service was good.
