We’ve had gelato every day that we’ve been in Italy. This place we stumbled upon by accident and it did not disappoint. The way to tell a true homemade gelato place is to look at the banana. If the banana is a muted , light...More

This Gelateria is the real deal. It is located at a quiet aisle and doesn’t scream attention. The ice cream are kept in lids, the first I came across for a Gelateria. Don’t miss this in Lucca!

If it’s fluffy, it’s fake - plenty of gelaterias in Lucca with whipped up piles of blue and pink stuff with whole bars of chocolate rammed into them who knows when. Not this one - beautiful ice cream in a number of interesting flavours -...More

Definitely the best ice-cream we had on our trip to Tuscany. When you are in Lucca, you should stop here.

The flavours of the gelato here are insane! The Salty Caramel and Salty Pistachio were absolute standouts, not too sweet or sugary - but authentic flavours we have not tasted anywhere else in Italy. Highly recommended.
