The best in Lucca!!!

This place prepares the best ice cream in town!!!! We tried different ice creams. Their ginger and chocolate with orage peel is yummy!!! But also their lemon and pear with pink pepper is awesome!!! not to mention their macamabia biscuits and walnut icecream!!!

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.

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.
