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.

We called here every day of our stay in Venice. Everyday we sat outside by the water ordering a bottle of Prosecco , drinking and watching the world go by, the service was first class, we where well looked after. The waiter was very friendly and answered all our questions on Venice, free snacks given with every bottle we ordered.... More

We do not know what was the worst, the standard, the atmosphere, the staff or the gelatto. From the outside it was fine, we ordered a few scoops of gelatto in a cup each and the staff was just so rude even taking our order and that should have been our first warningflag to skip it and move on.

This was the best Gelato in all of Venice and the price was in line with other locations. The location was very nice as it was on one of the canals, but not in the busy St Marks area.

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...
