Okay, so, I couldn't wait to take the picture. I started eating first. Sorry! If you go there, you won't be able to control yourself either. MANGIA!

I can't say it is the best gelato in Italy (or the world) since I haven't tried them all. However, it is the best we had in over two weeks in Italy. This is a small place that makes its own gelato, creates its own flavors and obviously does it with great pride, dedication and love. It is AMAZING.

We stayed in Pienza for a week and came every day for a gelato and fresh juice/smoothie. The gelato is hands down the best gelato we have tasted anywhere in the world. Flavors are creative and imaginative and delicious!!! They will also make you a juice or smoothie of any flavor - pick your fruits/veggies from their display and they... More

Recommended by local residents and Trip Advisers and we were not disappointed. This is truly artisanal, with a relatively limited list of flavors on any day, but what they have is very good. The pistachio, hazelnut, and almond flavors were so nutty tasting unlike many other places we've been where you can taste the "extract". This is worth winding your... More

This has to be the best ice cream ever! Wonderful flavour combinations - apple, rosehip and ginger; pear and cardamom; crema with strawberries and balsamic vinegar - coupled with great taste, texture and freshness. Currently still travelling in Tuscany trying to find something that comes close. They are lovely people too, by the way!

Very creative gelato flavors that change regularly. The chef is very enthusiastic about gelato! Flavors change frequently according to season and the chef's ideas.

What a wonderful discovery we made in one of the little back streets of Pienza. The owner and staff are friendly, more than willing to discuss how they make such wonderful gelato and they make really great flavor combinations. My favorite was Apple, Carrot and Celery gelato but there are many other offerings, made fresh each day.

Words are not enough to describe the majesty of this hidden gem! The weird combination of tastes (e.g. banana/avocado/parsley), which was perfect, along with the freshness of the gelato make this gelateria something you can miss when in the great area of Tuscany.
