“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Nothing can compare to the Italian ice-cream! The Italian gelatto is a must whenever we travel to this country. We have chosen Paolin from the good reviews of the other visitors and were very pleased: a big choice of flavors, a great taste and friendly staff.

“A real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

My husband and I 'happened' upon this restaurant whist trying to choose a spot for lunch on our first day in Venice. As with other reviews we found the staff very welcoming and the service first rate. My choice of melon with Parma ham consisted of an incredibly generous helping of both at a very reasonable price. Sitting outside overlooking the Square was the perfect start to our mini break. During our stay we then realised what a gem this restaurant was....other places we stopped at were over priced, the staff, if efficient were robotic, with no hint of a welcoming smile.
Considering the close proximity to St Mark's Square there is no way we could understand the difference in prices and service compared to that at Gelateria Paolin. Have the obligatory drink in the former but choose the latter for.a warm welcome,complimentary crisps whilst one peruses the menu, attentive staff, good food and lovely wine.The cost to you will be reasonable - but the memory priceless.

“First class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We came across this restaurant on our first night in Venice and returned everyday during our stay for drinks. The service was excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The drinks were reasonably priced for Venice and with every order came some crisps or olives a lovely treat!

The location of the restaurant is lovely and quiet with a lovely outdoor seating area - very relaxing

Would 100% recommend

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge at the Bauer Hotel and it was well worth it. Reasonable pricing, outdoor seating, relazed atmosphere, good food and drinks, as well as friendly staff.
