I am a gelato lover and always try some everywhere I go. I had the chocolate and pistachio here. The pistachio had real bits of pistachios in it which was amazing!!! I actually went back and thanked the staff it was so good!!!

We had gnocchi, penne, veal, chicken, potatoes and salat. The meat was a little bit dry but overall the meal was good. The price and the service was good as well.

Real deal gelato made from fresh natural ingredients, unlike other places that use pre made mixes and gels to flavor their gelato. Hands down best granita we had in Italy especially the fig.

This was supposed to be specialty gelato and we paid handsomely for it. It was terrible and didn't taste fresh at all. We took it to the nearby Church San Michele and ate it in the square but it the ambience only made the gelato slightly more tolerable. Skip this place.

Typically I am one that tends to review places that were either really amazing, or really worth avoiding. Unfortunately, this is not a recommended gelato shop. We spent the day in Lucca and following our tradition looked for a good local gelato shop to try out. Trip advisor sent us their way. I am an avid gelato fan, and have... More

Never pass on an opportunity to sample Gelato when touring in Italy, because we don't have this quality back home. The Gelateria de' Coltelli is no exception having a grand selection of different flavors to tease your taste buds. We got fig and fragola and were very pleased. ...

I normally don't eat ice cream.... This time I went twice to the same place, within a 30" timeframe! The flavor is really good and real!
