My GELATO is made daily with fresh high-quality ingredients like milk, fresh fruit, pistachios from Sicily, Piedmont hazelnuts IGP, vanilla bourbon and the best cocoa blends for a fantastic dark chocolate. Every single product is choose and selected to offer the best high-quality GELATO, this is my prerogative and the secret of my success. Enjoy it ;)

Geeeeeeeelllllllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaattttttttttttooooooooooo!!!!!!!

We stayed in Italy for 10 days and sampled gelato in Rome, Florence and Venice. The gelato we had in Rome was sensational and we had a horrible feeling we'd peaked too soon and would never taste anything quite so wonderful ever again. We got to Florence and to our surprise we found a gelateria... read more

We found this amazing Gelateria in the backstreets of central Venice (whilst lost!) and we're so glad we did as the ice-cream was absolutely amazing………… Despite the fact that this Gelareria has no seating area, the queue of people waiting to be served told us it would be 'worth waiting for' and we were not disappointed!! Next time we're in... More

We went based on recommendation by Frommer's. Found this place using a gps (most useful tool for Venice). We had green apple, pink grapefruit and hazelnut. Best gelato we had.

While this place is not on the beaten path, you really should seek it out if you enjoy good gelato. They are not open late which is a downer but when they are open they serve very tasty creations of freshly made gelato that are calorie worthy.

We went there 2 times in the 2 days we were there (and it was really out of our way the second day) despite there being Gelato shops EVERYWHERE. We had gelato on the Amalfi Coast and in Florence on this same trip, this was by far the best. I had vanilla and 'Squirrels Paradise' (a nut mix I believe)... More

We were recommended this ice cream shop during our visit to Venice, and am really glad we sought it out. It is a small shop, run by a really chatty, friendly man, (fluent in English) with an interesting range of homemade ice cream. The choices vary each day according to what they have made, but they make (amongst many) lots... More

Great ice cream for the usual price. Every taste we tried was near perfect or perfect. It's worthwhile to search for this nice ice cream shop.

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
