Great tasting ice cream and lots of flavours to chose from. If you go to Venice and like ice cream, you have to stop by this place and buy some!

We finally went to Mela Verde - easy to find especially with the line out the door. Best gelato we've ever had and we live in Europe so we've eaten a lot... My daughter had the mela verde (green apple) - amazing. Husband had pistachio, son had limone, mine was cherry vanilla almond and truly the best I've ever had.... More

We were staying at hotel Bucintoro, we had seen the rave reviews about this place so decided to seek it out as it was only a short walk from the hotel. It wasn't exactly the warmest day when we visited La Mela Verde but that wasn't going to stop us from giving it a try, we had a little wander... More

My wife, 4 kids and I found La Mela Verde the first day in Venice and we are so happy we did. We ended up visiting the gelateria every day of our vacation in Venice. The gelato was outstanding, I recommend trying the Green Apple (from which the shop got its name). David, the owner operator, was very friendly and... More

The first time we walked in here we didn't realise it has the best pistachio gelato in town. I have no word to describe the flavour, my boyfriend said it tastes just like the one we had in Sicily - AMAZING! We tried another gelateria in town (which also has good reviews on tripadviosr), but it's not even close. The... More

They serve absolutely gorgeous Gelato! Every time we passed it we tried a different flavour! They also serve their Gelato in a Crepe made right in front of you! This is the smell that draws you into the shop first. However we didn't try the Crepes, we were just consumed with the Gelato! Lovely friendly staff who spoke English and... More

Took some looking for but it was well worth it! The gelato is the best on the island! So good in fact we went back for seconds on the same visit! Coconut white chocolate...mmmm. The guys behind the counter seemed to like what they were doing which made the experience even better. It was a delicious indulgence for so few... More

This small ice cream shop is located slightly apart than traditional paths trodden by those who visit Venice and therefore may be less visible or attractive compared to similar places which are located along the main street. The specialties are in addition to the standard-bearer “Green apple ", the “pistachio PGI” and the dark chocolate. The flavors are derived from... More

I make ice cream but have to admit La Mela Verde's pistachio and apple ice creams are the best I've ever tasted. Well worth a visit.
