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 ;)

We found this hidden spot thanks to checking reviews on Trip Advisor, to thanks everyone who praised it! Delicious and even though it was busy, the people were really nice!

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.

We stumbled across this place in Venice, as you do. The gelato was simply the best I've eaten in years. Unfortunately, I doubt if I could find the place again!

I went there with my husband and baby today and ended up with 6 scoops of gelato! Lemon/mint/basil; pink grapefruit; lemon; cherry; chocolate; and ricotta & pistachio - all were the right creaminess without it being too sweet. The ricotta & pistachio, lemon mint basil, and pink grapefruit were my favourites. The worst was cherry which somehow tasted like Dairy... More
