Pretty good even though they use a scooper

Usually gelato is not scooped, but rather dished out with a paddle. They used a scooper, it was still pretty good, and conveniently located near the train station as we were heading out of town.

My wife and I attended the Elton John concert in the Piazza Napoleone,in Lucca. The next morning, we decided to tour this beautiful city before returning to Venice. Before taking our rented couple's bicycle for a spin along the top of the ancient medieval wall surrounding Lucca, we dropped in at the Gelateria Veneta. There was a good selection of... More

We had two hours until our train arrived, so we ordered two 'caffè americano'. It was great! We were sitting on the terrace under an ummbrella as it was raining a little. We enjoyed our time there!

Visited here many times two years ago (see review!) and were very impressed. Visited Veneta this year about 8 times for crepes and ice-cream! Quality and service is excellent. Highly recommended.

Nice ice cream, drinks and crepes in a well kept and clean business. Very popular judging by the trade, out of the main town centre so is perhaps a little cheaper. Nice friendly staff.

We was visiting Lucca for your summer holiday and we stop twice to enjoy the Gelato from la Veneta. Flavour are so fresh and tasty, the wild strawberry and limone are great choice. Chocolate and Hazelnut to die for. Kiddo go nuts for la Veneta gelato. Staff was smiling and very entrateinig. Thanks

We stopped here for a quick gelato break, and it was a great decision. We had dark chocolate and raspberry gelato which were definitely some of the best gelato I've had in Italy. The shop was cute and the staff were very kind. I recommend this gelateria to everyone!

I returned to this Gelateria as I had to try more flavours. Multiple scoops of different flavours are available for reasonable prices. I tried all my old favourites, but also had my first ever scoop of Pear Ice Cream, which was delicious. This is a gelateria frequented by locals and by visitors. It is busy, but you get served quickly... More
