This is by far the best Gelato I've had after trying several places in Milan, Florence and Pisa. This is an absolute must when in Lucca!

We had this galateria recommended to us in the lovely town of Lucca and we were not dissappointed. One of the best ice creams of our stay in Italy

As Italian ice cream addicts, we had to visit this gelateria daily, it was so good. A great selection of pure flavours; the bitter chocolate, pistachio, vanilla & coffee especially delicious. It's busy day & night, making a lot of people happy. Unmissable if you like ice cream

Friendly staff and beautiful gelato! What more can you ask for! The shop floor is clean and modern. There is a relaxed seating area and a wide variety of gelato to choose from. I went for cocco and nicciola! Yum!

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.

Thank Jessica H
