Great gelato, looked to be very popular with locals! Very friendly service and amazing homemade whip cream that they offer as a free topping! We will return!

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

this is a great gelatoria in lucca. they have lots of flavours to choose from and the ice cream is really creamy and delicious. the staff is friendly and they speak English. the vanilla is always delicious and also the pistachio. my favourites. All the ice creams are fresh and made by hand. you can't stop at just one scoop!

I loved this Gelateria! After the Gelato Festival in Florence offered new gelato tastes, my continued quest to find innovative and unusual gelato led me to Gelateria De Coltelli. Yes, the selection is not on your usual menu but all of the gelati and fruit ices are fresh, organic with high quality ingredients that surprise the palate. The Pear and... More

We've been eating a lot of gelato while in Italy. Who doesn't? There are some GREAT places in Rome. This one is pretty good. Choices are more limited and not so creative but what they do, they do well.

Great selection of fresh made REAL ices and a number of granite do not miss the bitter chocolate granita with whipped cream. only problem names are scribbled on a board and sometime not intuitive.the very kind staff makes up for this.

We selected Coltelli based upon Trip Advisor reviews of the store in Pisa. Several flavors seemed very interesting, especially "Serena" but the Lucca branch did not have them. :-( What they had was quite good, but later in the day we stopped at Gelateria Veneta and found that to be superior.

I went to this gelateria having read the comments on TripAdvisor, and I wasn't deceived. The woman who worked there was very sweet and helpful, the place had many flavors and it was very cheap. I was feeling adventurous, and I took the peer and pink pepper gelato. I liked it, but it was a little bit strange, I have... More

We first visited De Coltelli last year in Pisa and thought it was incredible. Imagine our surprise and delight when we stopped at Stella Polare to have a coffee and saw that De Coltelli now has a little satellite location in Lucca! It's adjoined to Stella Polare (a great bar/restaurant in its own right) and is open from 3-10 pm... More
