Quirky!

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

We went to San gimignano to tast what was supposed to be the best Italy. I think this ice cream was much better. This is the best I have tasted during my stay here on Italy. Really friendly staff as well. Would like to go back soon to taste more!

Today we visited Gelateria Veneta at their Via Vittorio Veneto location, close to the town entrance from the train station. Wow. Yum. There is a huge variety of flavours and the three of us all enjoyed our gelati. We ordered the piccolo (small size) which included three small scoops. Yes, three! If you like multiple flavours in your cone or... More

Having been coming to Italy for nearly 50 years and having visited over 30 Italian cities I have to say this is the best gelataria I've ever been to. We were tipped off by staff at the hotel, who obviously have had the time to try every place in town! There are in fact several shops but the one we... More

The staff recommended this place and they were right on the money...wonderful gelato! It's probably a little unfair to say it's the best since I didn't try any other gelataria's but this wasn't my first time to Italy and I can tell you, it is definitely one of the best!
