After a night at Venice Theater we decided to end with an Ice Cream! This Gelato was just so much more. It was late in the evening just at closing and yet the staff were still smiling and very helpful. If you are visiting Venice FL this place is the place to go, the shop is clean, well staffed and...

Yum is all I have to say! When taking a stroll on Venice Ave - stop in for a treat. You can taste test a few flavors so you get the right one.

charming saleswoman talked us into getting a two scoop grande, at $6 each, a little pricey. I had the tiramisu, the hubby a traditional lemon. Not quite Italian, but very yummy.

This is NOT a restaurant where you get a meal - it is strictly gelato and it's the best I've come across. Absolutely scrumptious. I especially love the hazelnut gelato.

This is the place in Venice for Gelato! The flavors are many and they are all hand made and excellent. Wherever you eat dinner save room for this Gelato for desert. It's worth the trip.

First off and the major point is that they do not use artifical sweetners in their no sugar added gelato! The Pistachio was so delicious as was the raspberry sorbet. The staff eas great and the serving sizes quite large.
