Amazing ice cream - there are a few benches just outside the shop to sit down and enjoy it and you can also purchase other items such as cakes, biscuits and ice cream lollipops - and other gift/novelty items.

We drove there by bike. It is close to the city wall! We were overwhelmed by the huge of different ice cremes, sweets and cute accessoires. The lovely service, the other friendly guests and last but not least the taste made it to a absolute must-visit!!!

The best tasting gelato and some amazing looking cakes / tiramisu make this place stand out. As mentioned elsewhere a crowd of locals queuing to get their gelato at 5pm can't be wrong!! It's outside the walls so a little bit of a walk, but follow Trip Advisor and you will find this popular place. I'm sure the others in... More

We read the reviews and thought that we had to try and find this gelato/cake shop to see if it really is that good. YES It is, the shop is just outside the walls and well worth the short walk, the choice of cake and chocolate is mind blowing and the gelato superb. Go here you will not regret it... More

There are gelaterias on every corner in Lucca and they are all generally good but if you want something special, make an effort to go to Le Bonta. It's just outside the city walls. The ice creams are delicious but there are also chocolates, cakes, biscuits in the most amazing displays. Simply wonderful!

It's always packed with locals. The best gelato in Lucca, hands down. Most tourists do not find this place because it is slightly outside the Wall. Service is always gracious. The gelato is heavenly.

I have had gelato all over Italy for many years and if this is not the best I certainly can't think of anyplace better. Amazing quality. If anyone does not like this gelato they either know very little about gelato or were in a bad mood when they went!!

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.
