This is a small but popular ice cream parlour in Lucca. We stopped to have some drinks and ice cream. We found it to be quite expensive. 6 Euro for three scoops of ice cream. The price did not deter the customers. It was a lovely spot to sit and people watch but it did come at a price.

Nothing special, don't waste your money. We have had gelato everyday for two weeks in Italy. This was the least memorable.

Although the service was a bit surly and the prices quite expensive it is in a very picturesque Piazza hosting a bronze statue of Puccini.

After a delightful lunch in Lucca this afternoon, my husband and I felt for some gelato and decided to go to Santini Sergio based on a NY Times article recommendation.

Plain ordinary ice cream (actually you could feel the sugar grains in the cream) and very unpolite and annoyed personnel. They become a little happier if you sit outside where the same food costs almost twice.

We went based on our guide's recommendation, so I just read the review about it being a tourist trap. I couldn't agree more. We got three small cups of gelato. Four out of six gelatos were WAY too sweet. The only two flavors - pistachio and forest berries were decent. I usually ask for my gelato in a cup, to... More

In a nice sunny day me and my girlfriend wanted to have a good italian icecream at the square of Puccini. The only icecream place there was Santini. Even though the look of the place was not very tempting, moreover, the owner heavy lady behind the bar was very rude and impatiant, we decided to take an icecream there, since... More
