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.

This could be the best Gelateria that we've been to in Italy. We first tried in a few years ago and it was great and still is. I believe the two locations are supplied by the main store on a daily basis . If you in Lucca it's a MUST. One store is on via fillungo near the amphitheater ,the... More

We visited here thanks to other reviews and had some amazing gelato. I tried fruit flavours with pear, peach and mottled cherry. They tasted fantastic! My wife had chocolate and coffee flavours which were just as good. Well worth a visit if in Lucca.
