“Excellent gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We went to gelato fantasy based on trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The Kit Kat, dark chocolate, pistachio, and rose were some of the favorites. It is tucked away on a side street off of San Marco square but well worth the search. We enjoy rich gelato with unique flavors and was very satisfied the two times we went.

“Don't go looking for it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Maybe it's good for Venice - but it's not good. Big scoops shouldn't be a draw, good gelato is so rich and creamy you only need a taste. This was bland and boring.

“We will always remember this gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Tripadvisor did not disappoint us here. With so many gelato shops in Venice, it is very easy to just stop in any and buy a scoop or two. That would be your mistake. You must make an effort to find Gelato Fantasy. It's very close to St Marco Square. The gelato here will go down as our most memorable scoop of gelato EVER. It is soft and flavorful. For the gelato enthusiasts, the color is subtle and not artificial. There is sometimes a small line and I did overhear a local telling a tourist "it's the best". Don't settle for any gelato, go to Gelato Fantasy! You will not regret it. E1.50 a scoop, E2.50 for two scoops and so on.....

“Only gelato place to go in Venice. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Excellent gelato. Hazelnut. Pistacchio. Kit kat flavors were great. We stopped here twice during our 2 days in Venice. It was on par with the the world champion gelateria from San Gimignano.
To find it from St Mark's square. Walking away from the basilica and into the square. Stay on your right. Turn right when you come to the first gelato place after the orchestra. Keep going down that street till you see it on your right. Just past Happy Pizza, which is also great.
