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

Best tasting gelato in 2 months of travel in Italy. The Amarena cherry flavour is the best. Also fondante and the tiramisu alla fragole. Only wish we were in Lucca lomger to try more flavours

We went in one night without knowing if there's are any good. Ice cream is very creamy and plenty of choices. Good to try out in Lucca.

In this shop you can buy extremely tasty icecream, it is like real strawberry or banena etc. Not like chemical aromatisators, but like real crushed and then frozen fruits! Via Beccheria, 10, 55100 Lucca LU, Italy

Sadly you have better alternative now but where this gelateria is let down really is from the lack of courtesy of their staff. Flavors are getting more bland and uninteresting. There are now few other good alternative to the Veneta's almost monopoly inside the walls of Lucca.
