Lovely small place. Sells delicious ice cream that isn't too "sickly". There's a nice square outside the shop too where you can sit on a bench and enjoy your ice cream in the sun!!

I had a cup of gianduia, nocciola and croccante di mandorle, whilst my son chose double gianduia and vaniglia. We agreed it was delicious ice cream, with a perfect texture, and a bargain at €3 each. The hazelnut was especially tasty. Highly recommended.

Definitely some of the best gelato I've ever had. Simple and delicious. Reasonable pricing. Friendly service. If you're in Bologna, do yourself a favor and check it out.

Hands down the best gelato I had during a recent three-week trip to Italy. The skill and the quality of ingredients were top-notch. And the service I received was charming and hospitable despite my limited Italian.

We are seasoned ice cream and sorbet junkies and have sought out the best in towns and cities all over Italy. We thought the best we had eaten was in Campo Santa Margherita in Venice and one we cannot recall the name of in Lucca - until today! The Cremeria San Francesco exceeds them all. Unique flavours, with daily specials, including today sorbetto Mediterrania (lemon, orange and ginger) and good value. Two generous cones with three flavours for E 5.20 . Wonderfully creamy with a real intensity of flavour yet not overly rich and cloying. We will be returning daily for the rest of our visit! Located a little off the beaten track but so worth seeking out.
