They showed us the additional options in the refrigerators that were eye candy. They had sorbets, biscotti, popsicles dipped in fudge, pistachio... read more

Second only to La Carriaria in Florence! And there's a laundromat a couple stores down with instructions in English. The perfect spot to munch on gelato while you wash your clothes.

This had to be a good place to visit after reading all the reviews on Tripadvisor, so we decided to check it out when we stayed in Lucca. Just visiting Le Bonta and looking at all the beautiful cakes and chocolate creations was an experience in itself, just amazing! Great ice cream too! Le Bonta is just outside the walls,... More

Le Bonität has the Best ice cream I have ever eaten. My wife also loves the "semifredo" coffee. Tiramisu is also wonderful

This gelato shop is just outside the city walls and well worth the visit. We tried meringue and strawberry and pistachio and mandarin. The mandarin was amazing and probably the best flavour I tried during our time in Italy.

Smiles all over, the best sweets we ever had, nicely priced and very friendly. Very worth your while outside Lucca's walls. Enjoy

It is important to have a passion in life, and our family's has been to find the finest gelato. In Le Bonta we have a true contender. In fact can't think of finer gelato in all of Italy, and we have tried the finest everywhere for Rome to Venice, Milan, Florence, Maples, Palermo, Siracusa, Siena and elsewhere. Yep, this is...

If you love chocolate, cream, apple pie, milfoil, baba au rhum, savarin, croquembouche, cheese cakes, tarts, mousses, profiteroles, ice cream... The moment you enter you understand that you have to keep yourself under control in order not to spend a fortune and gain plenty of kilos!!! :))) I love this place!

For a tea break this place is top notch. What seems like a small interior actually house seating out back. The hot chocolate that my friends had looked great but the tea I had was fantastic. Black tea with chocolate and coconut. All of the tea is mixed by the store and the tea bags they use is a nice... More

I have had my share of ice cream in Italy, but this place is the hands down winner for taste, flavors and friendly smiles! It is just outside the walls and worth finding. The flavors are fresh and delicious and the staff and very nice. They will give you their opinion on what they think is best. They also have... More
