Description: It is a new gelato cafe in Oranjestad. There are large signs outside displaying "Gelateria Artigianale" and an outdoor seating area around the back. I have found news articles online stating that it is at the Central Bus Station and in the Oroubo Plaza, but I cannot find an exact address. Sorry! Hopefully you can add the listing soon, because I'd love to recommend the place to other visitors!

The gelato is very creamy but not as light and airy as some I have had in Italy. It's a good place to stop by at least a couple of times.

My husband and I came across this place while reading about places to visit in Aruba. We both got the same thing Dulce De Leche gelato. It was very smooth and yummy. They didn't have a crazy amount of flavors but enough to fill any craving They also let you taste them before you buy. The service wasn't anything special,... More

Great gelato served in either a waffle cone or a cup for the same price. Lots of gelato places in Aruba and this one by far is the best. Would recommend if you want gelato or ice cream.

On the inside it looks like an Italian ice cream parlor with just a few places to sit. We ordered the mint ice cream which was okay but not extraordinary good. One scoop costs 3.5 Dollars, which in our opinion is too much.

On a hot day, the air conditioning, cooling gelato and a place to sit for awhile is just what I needed and found it here. The gelato was good and the service was pleasant.

Prices are not posted - 2 scoops runs $6.50 US. Good variety of flavors, but not very tasty. Ice chips in the Oreo. Convenient to shopping area and cruise ship port, but overall a disappointment for us. We were hoping that such high ratings on TripAdvisor would ensure us some good gelato.

Lecca-Lecca is a nice gelato shop in the downtown area. The staff was pleasant, and our gelato and lattes were very good. Their are no priced on the wall, but if you are used to ice cream shop prices in the US there will be no sticker shock.

We were looking for some ice cream on our trip last week to Aruba. Someone pointed us to Lecca-Lecca and we were soooooo glad they did. The gelato was divine. They gave us free samples to help us decide among the many many flavors. Not to mention the shop was adorable and the cleanest place in Aruba that we ate.... More

Lecca-Lecca is gelato at it's best. As a matter of fact, I'd never tried gelato until my first trip to Aruba and I came across this restaurant while exploring the city. The presentation of the gelato is wonderful and you are allowed endless free samples. I finally settled on one (or two or three) and enjoyed my selections more than... More
