By far the best gelateria in Lucca. Bottega have interesting flavours alongside classics which are all excellently executed. A regularly changing menu ensures there is always plenty of choice. The staff are passionate about gelato and will always inform you about the flavours and offer...tasters. Would definitely recommend a visitMore

Thanks immyy to visit la Bottega del gelato. I think you have find our soul: a classical choice of flavours beside some small unusual couple of taste that are our creation like mint cream or peach and levender. We try to explain our ice cream...More

Thanks for this review. I like chocolate and we research since we opened one of the best partner from France, Valrhona. Thanks for rate about service, but overall thanks to stay just for a while in La Bottega del Gelato.

I felt compelled to do a review of this most excellent place. Fantastic flavours & salted caramel was our favourite of what we tried. We almost decided to stay one more night in Lucca so we could have another! Best gelato that we’ve had and...we’ve been travelling through Italy for 3 months!! Do yourself a favour and give it a try!!!More

Delicious, flavoursome gelato at a good price. (2,50 for a small cone and 2 scoops) Hazelnut, salted caramel and chocolate with orange peel were amazing flavours! Lovely server, and customer limit in the shop for covid-19 safety.

Very nice small Gelateria! Not too many and not always the standard choices of ice cream, but very tasty and interesting combinations. You have to try the salty pistachio- it is delicious!

We live here in Lucca and we’ve tried a few of the many ice cream shops available but this one we come back to every week at least twice. Bottega Del Gelato is a Gelateria that stands out as they have a wide selection of...more modern flavours and lots of vegan options too. This isn’t your usual traditional Gelateria, it’s much more exciting! Anna and Laura are usually on duty and they can speak English if you need it, the flavours are available in English and Italian, and you can try all the flavours you want. The service is lovely, they care deeply about the product they offer and it’s such a welcoming little shop. Worth a visit if you’re in Lucca. The salted caramel gelato (dairy) is incredible. Literally what I get every week when I visit. Try it and you’ll be addicted. A great selection of non dairy flavours including lots of fruits and the occasional gem like beetroot and ginger to give you a savoury accompaniment to some vegan dark chocolate. Worth trying this place and experiencing something more unique, but then also visiting one of the more traditional places to get a sense of how different they are.More
