Excellent gourmet gelato, sorbet, and granita

Really excellent. This is a small chain and might be available in other cities (we tried to eat at the one in Pisa when we were there but it was closed). Inventive flavors. Sorbet was fresh and delicious. I noted a lot of locals ordering the granita which looked really good too.

Ice cream (gelato) in Italy is generally fabulous. This gelateria was recommended highly in one of our guidebooks, and the gelato was in fact wonderful.

A great spot for trying authentic italian Gelatto. De´Coltelli offers arround two dozen flavors (which vary according to the season and available ingredients) in very nice parlour in Lucca. They offer children size cones (which are very good for avoiding fights when you have a large family!) as well as the normal adult sizes. Every flavour we tried was amazing... More

A good quality handmade natural ice cream so no worries about any preservatives or gunk. So tasty and some flavours unusual but equally delishious! Ladies are fantastic and so friendly, helpful and fun! Defo a must try! For me, best gelato in Italia!

It is very friendly and nice gelateria. And I had found there some interesting tastes of gelato: saffron with caramelized orange zest and torrone. Saffron gelato was not taste, but torrone is pretty good! So I recommended this place and more traditional tastes of gelato.

There are few really excellent gelaterias inside the Wall in Lucca, and this is one of the best, if not the best one. The gelato is made fresh daily, and the flavors are wonderful. A two flavor selection in a cone or cup is 2.50 euros. The advantage to ordering the gelato in a cup (bear with me for a... More
