Venice can gouge you for items known to tourists, especially the gelato. This gelateria, somewhat off the beaten track, offers quite good gelato for very reasonable prices. The much-sought 2 euro cone actually exists. Skip the places on the famous squares charging as much for a scoop of gelato as for a steak dinner, and stroll down to the waterside... More

When in Venice we usually have our Room at the Palazzo Guardi around the corner. Whenever on the the way to or from the hotel, we have to stop here at the gelateria do Squero for a cone of wonderful fior di latte with mirtili or whatever your desire is.

It was kind of you to agree to work with the guys at Osteria Al Squero bringing our three chosen flavours down to their place so our wedding guests (x43) could enjoy both a flute of Prosecco accompanied by...

I was looking forward to authentic Italian gelato based on previous reviews. On entering the shop, the server was extremely rude and unhelpful. He actually recommended buying the gelato elsewhere as he didn't care. Terrible customer service. Avoid at all costs.

My friend and I went a long way out of our travel route in Venice in order to try il squero ice cream as it was highly recommended. To our big surprise, not only was the selection very poor and the place unhealthy, but the server was extremely rude to us. Stay away and save your time and money. Il... More

This was a highlight of our trip. A lovely day sightseeing, cicheti at Cantina del Vino gia Schiavi just a few doors away from Lo Squero, followed by yummy ice cream from Lo Squero eaten outside San Trovaso. Chocolate was good too!

Well, at least the best gelato that we tried. The place was packed with college students and the owner was friendly and helpful. The gelato is fabulous and it's a fun area, non-touristy area to walk around.

A bit hidden and not on the tourist-mainstream , fantastic place to meet people sitting outside of the wall following the canal looking at the last place where gondole are crafted ......
