All of the flavours are delcious. The ice cream tastes like real fresh fruits. I will point out that the dark chocolate and the Fragola/strawberry flavours are unbelievable good, and i have never tasted ice cream like this before. It's a wonderful taste-explosion of fruits and berries for your palate! You will need a map to find this small ice... More

Visited Venice for 4 days and had to go back to this shop every day for daily scoops for their gelatos. My children cannot forget the taste of their beautiful flavors. Pistachio is in the pedestal - simply the best and divine! Equally fav to gourmet gelato we've tried in Verona - vanilla/safron/nuts. This will be our first stop next... More

Mmmm the chocolate ice cream is sent from heaven. There is nothing to add but recommendations to try. I was just walking past and saw the Trip Advisor scores so thought I would give it a whirl. So good.

Crisp sharp flavors. Same price as other places. Nice portion size. Had some flavors we didn't see other places too. One of the best for gelato.

This was without the shadow of a doubt the BEST gelato we tried in 3 weeks all over Italy, which is a lot to say as we probably ate at least one gelato (often even twice) a day and we came across some delightful ones. But every other one just paled compared to this one. It was hard to find,... More

My whole family are ice-crem fans, so I thought we had to find this place in Venice after I had read all the reviews. La Mela Verde is quite small, the choice of flavors is not big compared to some other places, but the taste...well, I believe their ice-cream is all-natural! I tried melon and chocolate - both perfect, my... More

Hands down the best gelato place in Venice. The Giotto and pistacchio flavors are worth a try! Some flavors change daily so it's worth making a few trips during your stay.

The reviews are quite accurate. I found this place by chance after walking in Venice the whole afternoon. Feeling I deserved an ice cream, my tastebuds were literally blown away by the Lemon&Basil gelato. Perfect balance of flavor! I tried ordering the same at other gelateria in the north of Italy without ever coming close! Write down this address and... More
