This shop has every kind of dessert you could wish for all on display for you to chose. I felt like a child in a sweet shop. It is all beautifully boxed up for you to carry I recommend a visit or two while you are in Lucca!

Being a coeliac I appreciated the lady taking care and pulling back the gelato so she could scoop uncontaminated gelato for me. The first person to ever do this for me. The others have always told me which gelato is gluten free but never gone into uncontaminated gelato. She was careful but also cheerful.the shop had an extensive range of... More

Not sure what all the fuss is about, the gelato was average with much better options inside the walls. Frozen yogurt was delicious, though.

It's off the beaten track, outside the walls of Lucca - which is a good sign. The fruit ice cream was fantastic, especially 'mandarin'. Also the milk ice cream was good, but not as good as the fruit one. If I would go again I would only take fruit ice cream.

We made a trip outside the city walls to this gelateria based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, and we weren't disappointed. The gelato was amazing - so smooth, and flavoursome. It was also good value - in the region of 4 Euros for two cones with two flavours each. The stracciatella and tiramisu were near perfect, but the noisette was... More

Stopped here to see what all the hype was about, and just found an average Italian cake and ice cream shop! It's ok, but certainly not worth all the hype I'm afraid.

There are wonderful places to buy pastries all over Lucca, but La Bonta` is absolutely the best. I was taken there by a local woman who has a son who once worked there, and has now opened a bakery near my hometown in Southern California. What a treat! Every cake is a work of art. In fact, it is ALMOST... More
