went there because of the reviews on tripadvisor and was seriously disappointed. I had a small cup (and very small indeed it was, I have to add). The chocolate ice cream was all right, although nothing special, but the fruit tiramisu flavour was just horrible: way too sweet and tasted so artificial, I ate only two spoons before throwing away...

We liked the superb quality of the icecream - the Tiramisu was especially fluffy and a culinary delight. The presence of the owner telling us that the Gelateria is family run since 1927 was a further confidence builder that we made the right choice. There are two Gelaterias Veneta in Lucca.

Yes, I ordered a small for 2 euro. The cup was 2 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep. Ok, fine. But after I left the store, that little cup was also Half hollow!!! Rip off!

This was our treat for walking the walls of Lucca, and it fit the bill perfectly! Plenty of flavours, including Italian classics like tiramisu and Nutella, you can't go wrong! Do yourself a favour and stop by at least once!

We stopped for a gelato before getting on the train after touring the walled city of Lucca. This gelateria has a large selection and luscious flavors. The four of us shared tastes of each selection we chose on the walk back. A taste of Italy: gelato is a must try.

This gelateria is a must to visit when you are in Lucca. I have tried fig, Rocher, rum, hazelnut: all were very good. The cornet was also good finally. Medium size is 4 (smallish) balls for 2.7 EUR.

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!
