“Great gelato and chocolates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

If you are able to get past their fantastic gelato, you won't be disappointed in their chocolates and pastry offerings. A real gem in Lucca, an easy 10 minute walk from the train station.

“Great gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We came out of the old city wall to go to this place. I had pistacchio and yogurt which were both very good. They also have very nice looking cakes and cookies on display but we didn't try them. I would recommend their gelato.
I gave 3 stars for service because there was only one person there to do everything and we had to wait a long time because of the long line of people.

“Great Gelato !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Bought gelato here several times whilst staying in Lucca either walking into town or on the way back from town, sometimes both. By far the best in the area, reasonable price and great service. They also sell the most fantastic cakes which are magnificently displayed in glass cabinets. Always a busy shop with locals so that says it all really. Would definately recommend the raspberry flavour, my favourite of all !

“Not a meal! Dessert!! Gelato!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This place is a dream. Interesting to have a patisserie that is certainly as great as anything I've had in Paris in a (relatively) small town in Tuscany. We bought a cake, some chocolates, and gelato. All superb. If I could have stayed longer, I would have returned many times (and weighed about 100 pounds more than I already do).

“Icecream to die for.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Fantastic icecream and a fantastic experience, so much to see in this delightful gelateria where the production of icecream is a labour of precision and love using the best ingredients. Be sure not to miss it.
