Great Value, Ability to get up to Five Flavors in one cup

We greatly enjoyed Gelateria Veneta because of its reasonable pricing and the fact that you could get up to five scoops of five different flavors in your cup (all for only €3). This allowed us to mix some of our favorite flavors together, like Tiramisu, Crema, Nutella, and Cappuchino. They also... read more

My gelato was amazing...best I've ever had. Plus the lady was super nice and the prices were very reasonable, especially compared to some other gelaterias nearby.

If you want true ice cream like it should be, the Italians are the best in making it. Here in Lucca inside the walls, you will find a terrific ice cream parlor. Very small. We had a cup of pistachio and a maxi of chocolate(7 scoops). Awesome!!

Veneta is Lucca's oldest and best gelato. There are several shops inside the wall - each is very good. Flavors made fresh daily. Fresh fruit. Locally sourced. Always busy and good. Be sure to try the nocciola!

This is the best gelato in Lucca. Many varieties to choose from. If you go to the one that is close to the wall - there are tables & chairs you can use

I liked gelato here, even though I don't like classic artisanal gelato made in Italy - too sugary and too watery. It's a challenge to find fruity sour tastes in Italy. Instead, here there was a good selection of expected not to be very sweet flavors - pineapple, mango, raspberry, forest fruits. I got a small cone with raspberry and... More

This place has many, many reviews, so i'll just add a quick note. It is superb. The fruit flavors like strawberry and pear just attack your tastebuds. They claim they are using 80 year-old recipes and why not believe them. Staff was friendly, location just inside the wall up from the station makes it easy to find. Do yourself a... More

Believe the hype! Imagine a fruit picked at its optimal moment and then turned into ice cream! On a hot day try the fresher fruitier varieties. Melon was my absolute favourite. I had to get seconds! And I'm not so big on sweets in general. Go go go!
