Delicious gelato!! After experiencing the worst gelato in venice (and maybe italy!) on the campo ss giovanni e paolo we were determined not to make the same mistake again. We therefore made the effort to search out this little gem, and found it along one of the quieter canals. The gelato was suberb, creamy, full of flavour, and in interesting... More

Had a double gelato cone each, it was great. So many varieties and we both a different one. The gelato is so creamy and reasonable priced. We both wished we'd had a triple. Had ice cream all over our faces, joy, just how it should be. It's a pity there are no seating outside overlooking the canal as it would... More

My 7 year old son had a Gelato from some generic Gelato stand in Venice and it not only tasted terrible, but it melted all over his hand and arm within 5-10 mins. and it was not hot outside at all. I asked some people why and they said most Gelatos in Venice are made with powder and water in... More

We stopped by La Mela Verde for gelato and had the most refreshing gelato in Venice. We were exhausted from touring around the city in the heat and were looking for something to quench our thirst. I asked for a sample of their lemon, mint and basil gelato and I was hooked. It was the best gelato we have had... More

Hands down the best Gelato in Venice. We went there a couple times on our and walked away filled with joy. They make a different flavor everyday that is filled with candy. We had an amazing Kit-Kat Gelato that was the best Gelato we had on our two week trip.

Went here because of the reviews on Trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. So glad we tried this place. My whole family agrees this was the best gelato in we had in Venice. Actually, even better than the gelato we had in Florence too!

This was one of the best gelaterias we ate at in Italy. There is not a huge array of flavors but, as Spencer Tracy said of Katherine Hepburn, "what there is is cherce." Particularly good was the grapefruit gelato, an explosion of clean, tart flavor in the mouth. Combine a scoop of that with a scoop of one of the... More

The gelato here is amazing. They may not have the widest array of flavours available, but they are very reasonably priced for Venice and the taste is absolutely amazing. I'll definitely be back next time!

This place definitely has something special. Surely it is the way that these guys use their ingredients, the freshness simply leaps out at you. The crowds, many driven by tripadvisor, are a testament to the taste and success. The best gelato, we wished we could have had more
