“Best Gelato in Lucca Period!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Gelatoria Momo, on via della Fratta is worth the effort it takes to find it. Try the Pinoli or pine nut gelato and be amazed by the taste. The lemon sorbetto is "to die for," as is the pear sorbet, the fondente, the cherry, and many others. I LOVE this place!

“Best gelato in Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

A fantastic local gelateria I've been going to for years. The fruit flavours vary based on the season and are all made with fresh fruit. Definitely worth avoiding the tourist traps on Via Filungo and heading here

“Great gelato in the Real Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I liked Momo because it was obviously a "local" gelato shop. It's open late and always has a big crowd of locals. In the summer the fresh fruit sorbetti (mirtillo/blueberry, moro/blackberry, frutti di bosco/mixed fruit) are AMAZING, as is the peach and strawberry. Oh yeah, and the dark chocolate. Prices are the lowest in town, too.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Can there be a best in gelato. We found this out of the way shop in Lucca on a quiet Sunday morning. Very friendly service. Lots of selection. Heaps of gelato in a piccolo for only 1.70 Euro. That's a bargain. It was fabulous. The pistachio and raspberry stood out. Lots of flavour. Balance of creamy and sweet. Only competitor was Grom, which was also very good but pricier. Try them both !!

An amazing selection of high quality gelato, served by very friendly staff. There many gelaterias in Lucca, and this has to be in the top 5.
