Probably one of the best ice-cream experiences in South Africa. Home-made luxury that knocks the socks off anything else in Stellenbosch.Was open late in the evening so a great place to stop after dinner at a local restaurant. Love in a cone or a cup!

Situated in the middle of town as far as restaurants go, Lecca il Gelato is a great place to pop into after dinner. Their gelato and a cup of coffee is the perfect way to end off a nice evening. (As far as I know, they only accept cash)

Whenever we are in Stellenbosch we tend to gravitate to the Church/Dorp Street area and Lecca il Gelato has some of the best gelato around. We usually have 2 scoops in a cup as it seems easier than eating a cone when walking around. They also serve pancakes as they have tables on the sidewalk where you can sit and... More

As far as ice creams go, they supply some of the best in the area. Works out best to buy the cup and get two scoops, which is what I did. Not overly sweet. Best pistachio ice cream I've had in Cape Town. Who lever mixed it knows what they are doing. The double chocolate was a bit intense, but... More

We go here often and always awesome ice cream and service , but today the service was shocking and portions were way off. Paid for 2 scoops and got one "normal" serving. Really disappointed

The ice cream is to dye for, love the fact that they stay open late and operate even in the cold winter months. Go for a scoop of 2 different flavours in a cone!!!

We queued up indoors to order gelato and were completely ignored by both staff people. They were brewing coffee, cleaning tables,etc. so obviously working but a quick "I'll be with you in a moment" would have gone a long way toward making us feel the wait was worth it. Some people in line behind us gave up and left after... More

Served in cones or cups and stays open at night with a selection of sorbets and ice creams. Lovely set up of tables and chairs for a sit down outside on the pavement

I must say that Lecca Gelato has some of the best Ice cream in the Western Cape. We just had the most terrible service. We ordered coffee, tee, 2 cakes and Ice Cream. We waited 40 minutes for our order, when the wrong order arrived. Tables around us received similar service. The staff was completely clueless!! We were really disappointed!!... More
