After walking around Lucca, we stopped her from some gelato. The gelato was absolutely amazing, and the chocolate flavor was delicious beyond belief. The staff was also very helpful and friendly.

Spoil yourself with by far the best Icecream parlor in Lucca. For me the double dark chocolat Icecream ( fondante) is the best treat after a hard bikeride. They also have a wide variety of fantastic deserts . They 'be been around long time for a very good reason

Traditional Italian Ice-cream parlour that has been in situ since 1927. Huge selection of flavours, desserts and coups. Place was beaming with Locals at 9:00pm so we took it as a good sign. Our Ice-creams were absolutely delicious and we will be back tomorrow for some more!

Yummy ice cream and desserts to die for! A piccolo (small) cup is 3 scoops and the range of ice cream sundaes is seriously yummy stuff! To top it all desserts to take home - Tiramisu, Soave, Cassata, Cannolini, Torta Estate, Crocccantini Al Rhum. Husband and kids were happy campers tonight!

This is as authentic as it gets, in terms of flavor and presentation. It looks good too on the cone, the way they scoop perfect little balls of gelato. My favorite was the tiramisu, delicate and distinctive.

Best gelato I had on my 2.5 week stay in Rome and Tuscany. Excellent selection with lots of flavour choices - including dark chocolate and melon, two favourites. The strawberry tastes especially sweet and flavourful.

Prejudice?! They're selective about who gets a taste. My 2 white friends each got one taste and when it came down to me they told me there was no more free tastes for the day. Then the same woman went across the bar and gave someone else a free taste. Too bad. I was eager to buy a large cup.

루카에서 가장 맛있는 젤라테리아입니다. 특히 피스타치오는 토리노의 유명한 Venchi보다 맛있습니다.마을 남쪽, 중앙, 그리고 anfiteatro광장 북쪽 세 곳에 매장이 있습니다. No1 gelateria in Lucca! There are 3 shops. My favorite shop located north gate if piazza anfiteatro. You must try pistachio! My humble opinion, It's better than Venchi of Torino.

I really love good ice cream and I'm very picky when it comes to ice cream. We stayed in Lucca for few hours and I wasn't very much of an experience at first. Until we stumbled upon this gelateria in one of the alleys: trying this ice cream threw me back to my childhood when ice creams were made of... More
