I was a little disappointed that they used a scoop rather than a spatula here but the ice cream was nice. Run and almond is good and very light, dark chocolate and normal chocolate rich and tasty. Be aware that they charge by the cup/cone size and not by scoop so choose flavours accordingly. Price is ok 2.20EUR per small... More

This was our first visit to a gelateria in Italy and it made a good impression upon my kids. They were all able to try 4 flavors and we all agreed the fruit flavors were very tasty. I wish there had been more seating inside since it was a rainy evening the night we were there, but normally it would... More

Very tasty ice creams - Yoghurt/sorbet/cream. They have signs to say gluten free dairy free etc. I saw lots of locals stopping to buy a cone from here. There is a little place to sit if you want to get away from cold/rain but no view. Better to walk with the cone. 4 scoops for 2.70 euro in a cone... More

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. One closer to the train station (mentioned here) and... More

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!
