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

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.
