Located in a very nice place close to Sts Giovanni and Paolo Basilica and far from overcrowded place, this Gelateria offers a wide range of delicious ice cream and prices are correct. The service needs to be improved especially don't let customers wait too long before ordering. For this main reason I rate this Gelateria as average.

Too many yummy things to eat... Good service despite being very busy. A place that locals seem to love as well.

We found a great selection of chocolates and candies to bring home for gifts for people. The chocolate was very high quality, and everybody enjoyed and appreciated it.

Come here for coffee, pastries and croissant sandwiches in the morning and join the crowd of locals doing the same thing. To keep the cost down, eat at the counter with the rest of the locals. Cnetrally located but a little out of the way, a perfect way to start the day.

When we finally found this place, we were initially thrilled. The food looks amazing and it's not touristy. Sadly, things quickly turned sour due to the staff. My wife was mocked for daring to attempt Italian. The waitress laughed with another customer to her face (I just noticed a reviewer said something similar of their experience). I was treated like...

Sadly it went downhill from there, I have NEVER met such rude and obnoxious staff in my entire life. Not one of... More

Made it at last after reading of it in Donna Leon's books. Yes good coffee and a real Veneziano atmosphere. Wish I had a sweet tooth though!

A bustling cafe serving stunning pastries and chocolates. Elegant and delicious. Bill of 7.50 Euros was for 4 mini pastries and a glass of local wine. Virtually every seat was taken on a Thursday morning in January - I imagine getting a seat in the Summer would be a real challenge. Well worth a detour.
