Lecca-Lecca

Weststraat 13 | Arubus Main Bus Station, Oranjestad, Aruba
297 5884074
Improve this listing
Ranked #19 of 96 restaurants in Oranjestad
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Italian
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!

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

I love cold delicious desserts and especially while on vacation so I had to check this out. As many have said, when you see the gelato and see the flavors, you have to try it. It was very good but maybe not as good as I had expected. There were many flavors to find and something for everyone. 1 small... More

After reading the comments before I really was excited about getting some ice-cream here. True, the ladies were very nice and the ice-cream LOOKED very tempting and delicious. But.....it was so sweet and so expensive. I don't think it is worth it. I've had much better for much less.

One look in the window and you will know you have to try this gelato! Oh my! We looked, we taste tested, we bought! The presentation in this store is like no other I have ever seen, the display is so artistic, it looks like bouquets or petals of flowers - beautiful! But you don't come to look, the taste... More

While on a cruise we visited Aruba and basically was looking for a WiFi spot and visisted Lecca Lecca. Much to our delight we could have our dessert and WiFi too. Not since 2012 in Italy did we have wonderful gelato so this was a good treat. The counter people were polite and helpful. It appeared a lot of people... More

I've had lots in Italy and USA and this was amazing. The artistic presentation matched the wonderful taste of the gelato and we tried lots there. A must in Aruba! It is a gelateria downtown Oranjestad and sells sandwiches as well.

This small shop serves the best Gelato I've ever tasted! And I've never seen a more artful display of their product. If you are downtown Oranjestad near the cruise ship docks in Aruba on a hot day and need to rest your feet, make your way to Lecca Lecca for a cold, rich delicious treat..
