We tried Grom and Chez Nico, but La Mela Verde was the best. They have a better range of natural fruit flavours than anywhere else we found in Venice. If you can find your way to San Zaccaria church then you're not far away. It is definitely worth a visit for great gelato.

Our return visit to Venice would not have been complete without a trip to Mela Verde. We had been three years ago and were haunted by the memories of perfect gelato. However, this time we though that though they maintained an exceptionally high standard, there were fewer outstanding flavours to draw us in. We really missed the stunning Violet and... More

A must to delight your palate. The combination is so fresh with just enough balance of each ingredient. I've been here three times in two weeks , even my Venezian friend has become an a fan. I have another 10 days to enjoy other flavors! Makes my mouth happy!

While walking and walking in Venice, we decided to stop for a refreshing gelato. And it was a wise choice... It is AMAZING gelato, and you can taste the quality ingredients.. we tried several types, but the best the "Mela Verde" -- Green Apple. You can taste the pieces of green apple in the gelato...Yummy!

Limited selection of ice cream. Not so interesting. We walked for a long way to find the place but was a little bit disappointed.

If you are in Venice, do not skip this place. Is not far from San Marco square and you will have an incredible Gelatto. Try the Mela Verde or Melon, they are just perfect. We will definitively come back to this place!

We visited Rome, Florence and Venice on a ten day trip sampling ice cream on a daily basis, some cheap, some not, quality varied considerably. This was by far the best, great service, fantastic ice cream - good price, and happened to be really close to our hotel. What a find, we will be back.

Having surveyed numerous gelateria in Italy, my travel buddy and I have come to the conclusion that this is the best. We had the Lemon/Basil/Mint and the Pink Grapefruit. Go to this one. We just stumbled upon it, but we would go to Italy to track it down again. It's that good.
