Don't miss this gelato!

We discovered this geletaria on our first day in Lucca. We returned every afternoon for five days. Each of us had our favorite flavor. (I always included a scoop of cherry). As good as it gets.

Only the freshest and in season flavors of gelato are served here. Very creamy and delicious. Our hotel sent us here "...for the best gelato in Lucca." We couldn't agree more!

On a tour in Lucca we made a point to find some Italian Gelato and found this little spot as we strolled through town. It was a cute little spot and the service was absolutely awesome. It wasn't busy at all so we were served right away and there were plenty of gelato choices to choose from. As I don't... More

This is quite a flashy gelateria and I see they have opened another branch on the via filungo. I tried the product from both branches and they were both over sweet and lacking in flavour. Could not tell one from the other. They should concentrate on the quality of the product rather than the smart premises.

We were in Italy for two weeks and we had the best ice cream here. The price is cheaper than in other icre cream shops. I recommend to order the biggest one so you can enjoy more tastes. I especially recommend cciocolate fondente. Delicious!

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
