We found this gelateria while strolling along the canals in Venice entirely by accident. We couldn't resist stopping by. I had stracchiatella and my husband had plain chocolate. Both were delicious. We'd recommend the place to anyone who is craving something sweet.

Probably the best restaurant on the block. The rest are shocking. It sells the same as the rest of the ice cream sellers. But it's easy to use. Would I go again, only if passing.

Perfect little kiosk for gelato and the best lemon granita and very reasonable, lots of different flavours including liquorice, whilst we were there families were ordering litre tubs of ice cream to take home for dessert - obviously a well known Venetian favourite.

It was great gelato & price was decent. It was also only 5 mins walk from our hotel. Very near the bus stop as well.

Just around the corner from our hotel and off the southeast corner of the Piazzale Roma is this little storefront gelato shop. There were several selections of gelato and I tried two of them on one cone. It was smooth and creamy though they did not have the intense flavor I was expecting. Overall very good and priced reasonably.

Recommended by Hotel Tivoli desk clerk. This is a nice, walk-up counter place on the canal. Good choice of gelato flavors. Good quality and portions. We went here twice. If I had more time, I would have tried the Venezia flavor of apricots and chocolate. Wish I saw that particular flavor sooner.

Thank MacnCheeseMom2014

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
