Simply delicious ice cream! The best strawberry and banana ice cream I've ever had. Enough to choose from, also sorbet, frozen yoghurt and frappe. Very much value for very little money.

I have to admit we are Grom fans. But due to a lunch fiasco in Pisa, we wanted some ice cream and fast! So we ended up here. Two of us took a five euro pancake with forest fruits. Delicious! The others took gelato, and it is as good as Grom ;-) Comes recommended, especially the pancakes.

We spent 4 nights in Lucca and had gelato at least twice a day at various places, and this was our favorite, especially for fruit flavors. Our family favorites were plum, raspberry, and strawberry. The Nutella was also quite good. We frequented the location near the anfiteatro. We liked that you could get lots of flavors and still be eating... More

We found out about this gelato place when we had the kids at the playground and the ice cream man (gelato man?) came to the park to scoop fresh cones! The kids had some, we did not, and they said it was soooo good. So the next night after dinner we sought out the storefront, and yes it was some... More

My little man offered me a taste of his gelato cup . Good gelato , served by helpful nice friendly staff . He was so delighted he had a second cup the next day as well . I think his favourite was the pistachio. The yoghurt was also delicious

Delicious, creamy gelato. I’m not inclined to say one place makes better gelato than another, particularly when the quality is at this level. We had gelato here twice and it was delicious both times. One doesn’t usually visit a second time if there wasn’t some pleasure the first time, no? I ate small servings of gelato almost every day during... More

This is some the best gelato I had whilst in Italy- the flavours where amazing and so intense. The service was also good and reasonably priced! I can recommend the dark chocolate!

Many people believe this is the best place for gelato in Lucca, but I would have to disagree. It was good, but not amazing. We tried many places and loved Gelateria Momo the best. It's also less of a tourist trap since it's farther from the busy streets.

We noticed that there's a lot of gelato places in Lucca, and ended up stopping here. I get cappuccino, hazelnut, & rice. My daughter got a watermelon granita. My husband got lemon, pear, and pineapple. The flavors were pretty good.
