The best gelato I've ever had! It wasn't as icy and it's made fresh every day! The grand Marnier crepe was perfect! They are opening more shops this summer! If in Lucca, stop by!

First of all, service was amazing! The lady working there was so nice! She even told us a brief history on the business! I also really like how they serve you. You get 3 mini scoops of 3 different flavors at the least. I am definitely going back!

Every time I am in Lucca I go to Gelateria Veneta. The gelato is delicious and there are so many different flavours. Beautifully made, fabulous quality and great value.

Our family is on a quest to find the best gelato in Lucca - so far Veneta is # 2. For 2.30 Euro you get 3 small scoops of delicious gelato. The owner was kind and engaging and was patient with our broken Italien. They close on Nov 1 for the season.

Everytime I come to Lucca, I enjoy with a stop into La Veneta and get a Cassata. Sometimes I'm so surprised but this very special dessert that I take a second one! Try, it is unique!

We dropped into Veneta last night after dinner. My family of five each had a gelato and they were fantastic. The best gelato by far that we have had in 3 weeks of travelling. The owner was very friendly and obviously takes great pride in the quality of his produce.

We've been going to Gelateria Veneta for literally decades. It has been consistently the best. The fruit gelati are intense and fresh. I cannot recommend it enough. It is certainly the best in Lucca and one of the best in Tuscany.

Just what you need on a warm afternoon after wandering the historic walled town of Lucca. Wonderful variety of flavours. The unusual twist was a screen showing each one and their ingredients. Fantastic for anyone with food allergies or intolerances, e. g. Ices with no egg or those with nuts; ices containing milk. Really easy to choose safely. The flavours... More
