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.

There's a lot of walking involved in seeing the sights in Venice and there's tons of sidewalk cafes competing for the business of giving you a comfortable place to rest your feet with a pleasant view. Many of them (Especially San Marco & the Rialto areas) are rip-off joints but this place was terrific. Very friendly service, cold beer and... More

Really just hit the spot, very nice and clean place, excellent service, and prices are reasonable too. Also, awesome selection, have to mention that. I had the pistachio and something else, both were great

Went to this gelateria on the advice of Frommers but have to say the ice cream is ok, nothing special. Service was not good and the staff got downright mean when they thought we were going to sit down at their tables with our ice creams which we had no intention to do.
