Accidentally, my children have bought ice cream to take away into the cones as I have chosen this cafe to sit in with my wife. We were literally kicked out in a VERY rude way as out children have found us. Very embarassing experience. I will never go to this place again!

One of the best ice creams I have ever eaten. Gelateria Paolin was open in the late evening, and I wanted an icy dessert after the dinner. I ordered a medium portion of lemon and green apple ice cream (3,00€). It was so good that immedietaly after eating the first ice cream, I returned there for a second time and... More

A lovely little gelateria in Venice. Lovely food, and their speciality drink of coffee, chocolate and cream was to die for. Was a little pricey (4 drinks and 4 snacks was 41 euros) but the vibe was great. Ice creams were excellent and service was as well.

All 5 of us grabbed a small cone (very reasonably priced) after dinner one night. All of us chose different flavours....all delicious. The tiramisu, in particular, was super creamy and yummy.

I had a scoop of Coffee Ice Cream and an espresso coffee. I am not impressed by my ice cream. It does not taste much of coffee. It is disappointing. Italian ice cream usually taste better.

We ate dinner on the other side of this piazza and came here for desert on walk back to hotel. Very worth it! Took gelato to go. We ordered both amaretto and vanilla, both delicious.

Yes we too had the superb ice-cream but we also came here for breakfast a number of times. At 9:30 in the morning the Campo Santo Stefano is still fairly quiet and you can sit with your cappuccino and croissant and let the day begin in a leisurely fashion. If your hunger is greater try the toast sandwich. You can... More

For 1.30 euros you will get one scoop of one of the best gelato in Venice. The two times we went, the line was not long like in other locales since the location is away from the busy Rialto section of town. Fast service!

The ice cream is best in town and always tasty. Great spot for lunch and nothing beats the prices here. If your in Venice you better come here before you leave Italy.

Famed for the chocolate ice cream, this is a nice cafe for a quiet seat, an ice cream or an aperitif as the sun goes down. Service was a bit tardy, but friendly.
