A historic ice-cream parlour! All ice-cream made in-house according to ancient recipes that have been preserved over the years! Don't miss the real deal! Overlooking the Guidecca Canal!

Fabulous waterfront location looking out towards the island of La Guidecca. The waterfront here is relatively calm after the bustle of the old town, and yet it's only 5 minutes stroll from L'Accademia bridge (the Vaporetti water buses stop here and also right by Nicos at the Zattere stop). Drinks and ice cream desserts are reasonably priced for Venice, especially... More

We took the boat over to try this ice cream, which was described as the best for those needing gluten free. It had started raining when we arrived, but the doors were open and we were there during posted hours. But the guy running the place pushed us out the door and said he was closed. I guess the rain...

Great gelato with a fantastic view. They also make a solid spritz and bellini. If you are going to the guggenheim then so by this gelatoria.

This cafe has a graet location right next to the waterbus stops. Ice cream is very tasty and you get a great view over the basin. Service is a little slow but hey, you are on holiday right? Prices not cheap but this is Venice.

We found Gelateria Nico on the waterfront as we were walking toward our hotel near the Guggenheim Museum. We have been to several other cities in Italy and Europe and Nico has the best gelato by far. After trying some other gelato shops in Venice, e gave up and returned to Nico since he could not be beat. You definitely... More

I'm guessing it's hard to find bad ice-cream in Italy overall, and this place is no exception. Their ice-cream was very good, what more is there to say...

I was recommended the Gianduiotto by a local, and it would appear that I got a price cheaper than what was listed on the menu. The price for a standard gelato is about par relative to what you would expect from a place near Rialto Bridge or Piazza San Marco - not great but still not a rip-off. The other... More

We were told by a Venetian Contessa to try the gelato here as it's reputedly the best in Venice. You have got try Lampone, it was like eating freshly crushed raspberries and cream, delicious!
