La Boutique del Gelato is easy to find once you've navigated your way through the streets. The crowd gathered around outside waiting to order their gelato is a dead giveaway. In a town of a million gelateterias, this is the best we've found. Chocolate Mousse was my favorite. The location is close enough to San Marco Square to be convenient,... More

We spent 10 days all over Italy and this gelato spot had the best gelato of our entire trip! The mouse gelato is amazing!!! Clearly homemade and not the colorful stuff the tourists swarm to. This is authentic and delicious! I would recommend this place to everyone!

The gelato was great. My husband had the lemon and I had the hazelnut. Both were delicious.We passed it on the way to Alfredino's and it seemed a natural place to stop and sample some gelato. Was it the best Gelato in Venice? Well I confess to not being a real Gelato connoisseur so I cant answer that question however... More

We have had gelato elsewhere in Italy. I don't know what makes the best gelato, but this was pretty good. My kids wanted to go back here three times. We got here early one day and they were still making the gelato fresh. I am not sure this is worth a special trip, but we enjoyed this stand and appreciated... More

This was our first gelato stop in Italy. We were very happy about it, but if you want the best ice cream in Venice you should go tot Suso instead.

Nothing special with this place. I think too much hype. There were similar and better places. And cheaper too.

Came recommended. Looked out for the place. They didn't have all the flavours when we visited by 1130 am. We then went back at 3 pm. The watermelon flavour was good but too sweet. Apricot was so so. Chocolate was good. Was not worth looking out for this place.

Our group of adults decided to try this gelato place out. We were not disappointed. Everyone loved their flavors: stracciatella, cherry, chocolate, everything was amazing. It was easy to find and was very affordable. Just a precaution: the mousse is very heavy and is more like cream. Definitely not a gelato. And if you're in the mood for ice cream,... More

I was a little bit worried when entered the site because there were like only 8-10 flavours of gelato available but then my husband said something that I cannot forget: "there's a difference between variety and quality.". And so we have asked for a flavour that had some cherries on it. The "one scoop" serving is bigger than a 2... More

We were here 3 years ago and the gelato is still the best in all of Venice. We've had at least 1 every night of this week, 1 scoop costs €2, 2 for €3 and 3 for €4. Yes it's a bit more than the other places but the scoops are huge, it's almost like they add an additional scoop.... More
