We came upon this gelateria whilst wandering the streets of Lucignano and just went in ... as you do! Top class gelato, very fresh because it is made in the shop where you can actually see the man working. Highly recommend cremino, arancia & cheesecake. All good gelaterie have bench seats out front and this one did.

There is a reason for the line up here, very reasonable ,great selection made in house daily. They could stay open a little longer in the evenings thou We have walked up a couple of evenings and at 8.30 they were closed

We were 2 weeks in Lucignano and kinda every day at this beautiful Gelateria. It is in the centre of Lucignano. The boss is a very nice guy and very funny. After some days he already knew what flavors we wanted by heart. The ice cream is delicious and very natural and not artificial. Thank you very much for this... More

There's a lot to choose from when it comes to gelaterias in Italy, but this is one of the best. Nice people, beautiful space in a great hill town in Tuscany and some of the best artisanal gelato on the planet. The crepes in the morning are great too!

This is a fantastic Gelaterie with amazing ice cream and the most helpful and pleasant owner you could hope to meet. Crepes are also on offer as well as hand made cakes and other goodies. An indulgent pleasure in this nice little town!

We happened upon the small, beautiful village of Lucignano by accident, we were looking for a restaurant open on a Monday. Thankfully we found it and this beautiful ice cream shop. Situated just inside the main gates of the village and a short left, this has many flavours all made on the premises. Tip: try the specials on the board... More

Simply the best gelato ever. I also liked the Nutella Crêpe. If you're travelling in Tuscany you should visit Lucignano and try this gelato. I am really impressed!

To be honest this is the only proper ice cream place in Lucignano , you can buy ice cream from the local bars but this is the only place that actually makes its own. The ice cream isnt quite up to Veneto standard as it does start driping fairly quickly but they do a wide range of flavours and extras... More
