Can't get These Flavors Anywhere in Venice

My family always comes with me when I say I going to ciao gelato, when I say I'm going anywhere else they won't come we come here all the time. We love the chocolate chip, panna cotta and pistachio gelato. The Flavors taste fresh and delicious. We 110% recommend this place, the trip is SO worth it... read more

My sweet teenage son took me here and bought me a cup! I don't remember what flavor except it was some extra rich chocolate. Did you know gelato has less fat and calories than ice cream? They have a variety of flavors. It is on the pricey side, but so delicious.

Best coffee ever and service was the best! From Saint Louis and visiting Venice. Must stop here. Better than Starbucks. My daughters and son loved the ice cream.

We had been at a craft fair and then a bit of shopping in downtown Venice. We saw folks walking around with ice cream. Good idea on a hot afternoon! The ladies at the Sunbug dress shop suggested 3 places down the street but highly recommended the last one which was the farthest away. They were so right! Not sure... More

Stopped in to Ciao Gelato while on a road trip with my better half. During our time in Venice, we were able to sample several flavors of their gelato. Not one of those flavors disappointed. A definite treat. Stop by after visiting one of the great cafes and restaurants in Venice.

If you are ever in Venice, FL, make sure to stop by Ciao Gelato. It is a quaint little Italian gelato shop with freshly- and daily-made Gelato. The gelato was absolutely scrumptious and Miranda and Norma were delightful servers. It was Fathers' Day, so we didn't get to meet the owners, but give them kudos for their sweet stop on... More
