Fodor's Expert Review Gelateria Veneta

$ Lucca Pet Friendly

This place makes outstanding gelato, sorbet, and ices (some sugar-free). They prepare their confections three times a day, using the same recipes with which the brothers Arnoldo opened the place in 1927. The pièces de résistance are frozen fruits stuffed with creamy filling: don't miss the apricot sorbet–filled apricot. Note that they close up shop after October and reopen around Easter.
