This place is a dream. Interesting to have a patisserie that is certainly as great as anything I've had in Paris in a (relatively) small town in Tuscany. We bought a cake, some chocolates, and gelato. All superb. If I could have stayed longer, I would have returned many times (and weighed about 100 pounds more than I already do).

Fantastic icecream and a fantastic experience, so much to see in this delightful gelateria where the production of icecream is a labour of precision and love using the best ingredients. Be sure not to miss it.

Busy cake, gelato and chocolate shop. Seemed busy with Italians which is always a good sign. I would recommend walking outside of the Lucca walls to go here for something sweet.

If you are in Lucca for day or week then a visit to Le Bonta is well worth the walk out of the town walls. The gelato is to die for – tried probably 10-15 different gelaterias in a course of the week I spent in Italy – NO ONE matched Le Bonta on purity of taste – perfect a must visit, when in Lucca.
One plus point a lot of locals seemed to flock the shop which surely is a good sign.
Did not try their cakes as I am trying to lose weight  but they did look rather inviting.

A 10 minute walk along Via Castracani from the city walls, this place is a gem. They have a vast range of gorgeous cakes small, medium and large and all for a reasonable price. They are the equal of any tip french patisserie. We took a selection of 6 small cakes to share and they were so good, went back the next day to try another 6! They also do a fantastic range of ice creams. Well worth the trip.
