The gelato was just so-so, and the service took Italian rudeness to a high point. Nico was recommended by our travel guide and I suggested she not make that mistake again.

We happened to stumble upon this place while we were exploring venice. We stopped for a soft drink and slice of pizza and it was delicious and served very quickly. The view is absolutely stunning and I would love to return someday. Gutted we didn't go back for gelato! Would definitely recommend though.

lots of choices of hand made(it is not the norm), really fresh ice cream. Out runs every other we have tried and we tried about 7 different ice cream places in Venice. Highly recommend it and in an excellent location!

This is a great location to sit and watch the water. The fondamente is large and allows kids to run and play. If you are looking for great gelato in Venice, go somewhere else...just about anywhere else.

We 've been coming here for many years, mostly because it's our kids' favourite place to have an ice cream in Venice. As it is in every brochure or guide and mostly very recommended, prices are high and service is average, but who bothers .....with such a view and such quality !

Didn't get anise cream here but it was open in the early hours when we had to catch the water bus back to the airport. Excellent warm croissants and coffee!

Solid gelato choices like sundaes and banana splits. Great deck built out on the canal to sit and enjoy.

I read about this place on tripadvisor before coming out to Venice, after a meal at Ae OKE we decided to get some Gelato for the walk back to the Hilton. Gelato was nice, they had some good variety and I hear the deserts are amazing. Good price, quick service no complaints.
