Nearly in the middle of Lucca is located this great "gelateri". Not only tourists like it, but also the locals frequent this place. A variety of organic ice cream is available, always freshly prepared. "Panna"" is for free who likes it. There are also "granite"" avalable and very nice and tasty ice cookies. Give it a try. Coltelli is also... More

excellent gelato but I did have a touch of difficulty understanding all the flavours (and what granite was). we were in a bit of a rush and there were others waiting (plus my Italian is almost non-existent) so didn't get into asking. This is a place I would go back and recommend to others (one of the best on my... More

We stopped by this Gelateria at the recommendation of one of the locals. While it wasn't the best gelati I've ever tasted it was pretty good and reasonably priced.

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.

Hi Josh H, thank you so much for the super positive feedback! We have only two shops and one laboratory. We opened in Pisa 11 years ago and there is the big laboratory, then we opened in Lucca 2 years ago. The locals usually loves granita 'cause we make them in the Sicilian style, natural and real raw ingredients, and... More

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.
