Since we were staying nearby, we had the opportunity to try this place at least three times - maybe four by tomorrow. We have only tried the gelato so far. Their chocolate hazelnut is a Nutella lovers delight. The custard cream was delicious as was the pear ginger. I like that this is not a chain store and it is set near other shops for sandwiches or pizza. The flavors changed over the days we were there, so that is a bonus. My only suggestion is more chocolate in the strachiatella cause I do love chocolate. The people working there were helpful and friendly- also repeated our order in a nice way to help us with our pronunciation.

Found on the last day or would have been a regular haunt , this has to be the best Ice Cream in the City The flavours are intense and instantly recognisable. The place itself is spotlessly clean and the staff member was both helpful and charming. A winning combination.

Cross the bridge opposite the train station and keep on going straight ahead but then follow the maze of streets toward Rialto. Very good quality Gelato for your daily gelato break. Good intense flavours. Very cold on a hot day. 2/3 of the way to Rialto to the left around a corner.

We had the fortune (or misfortune depending on how you look at it :) ) to stay a couple of blocks from this ice-cream shop. The tiramisu is delightful and the ice-cream is by far the best I ever had in Venice.
They also managed to create a "sachertorte in a cup", not to be missed! It tastes exactly like the cake.

Wonderful gelato that is very much worth walking to find it a bit off the beaten path. Might be some of the best we’ve ever had.
