This was my favorite gelato I tried in Venice. Great location in Campo Santa Margherita and definitely worth a visit. I preferred it to La Mela Verde which was so highly recommended here on TA.

This is the best gelato we had during our trip to Venice. Located in campo santa margarita, the gelateria doesn't have any place to sit but there's really no need being in a great atmospheric piazza. Of the six flavors we tried were all luscious and rich, what you expect from the best gelato. My only regret is that we... More

5 days, 6 people and about 40 portions of ice cream consumed, all in the name of market research. Il Doge voted by all 6 as best in Venice. Signature flavour is chocolate orange but also has wide selection. Go Il Doge!!!

This gelateria is just south of the Campo Santa Margherita and is on a useful route either to the Zattere or the Accademia. We had stopped here previously and had enjoyed the Crema de Doge so much that we made a point of going back. The Crema de Doge features deep rich vanilla ice cream is topped with a crisp... More

Two cases full of Gelato flavors (although there were duplicate flavors in the cases, so not as much of a variety as I initially thought. Great value, great taste, friendly service. The pin on the tripadvisor map is in the wrong location. We tried to find this without success and ended up stumbling on it the next day by accident.
