You can get two flavors on the small cone and try one flavor. The hazelnut and pistachio were both really good - tasted very fresh!

I enjoyed the cinnamon as well as the biscotti! We tried cinnamon at another place in Italy and it was not as good :)

You first think I am not waiting in that line. It moves fast. Go for it. Worth the minutes of wait. It seems like a crazy system they have but it works. You get your gelato and you are out the door. Go sit in...More

We went with the World Championship Winning awards and the long queues, it is small and a bit disorganised - probably goes with the large numbers. The vanilla is nothing to write home about but the spearmint flavour in the mint chic chip was immense....More

You have to try the "gelatos" at Dondoli...they are absolutely amazing. Many flavors, colors, smells. Give this pleasure to yourself. Try the pistachio or tiramisu...Unbelievable!

They claim to be the Gelato World Champion ! There was a long queue to sample this greatness. Is it any better than other Gelatos ? Nice, cool, refreshing - but my palate really could‘nt differentiate this from other gelatos I have sampled in Italy

The best ice cream I've eaten easily in the whole world. We visited in the late evening hours because during the day it was way too long line. Filling almost all the square.

This Gelato shop has won numerous awards and is one of the top Gelatos in the world. If you visit San Gimignano wait in line for a scoop or three, you will not be disappointed.
