“Yummy ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Delicious selection of ice cream. The Venexian was a lovely combination of vanilla ice cream, real pieces of bitter chocolate and candid orange!

“Found by accident, but wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Wonderful gelato. Found after wandering around for what seemed like ages. Got lost and needed a break. Had the banana gelato. Wonderful and well priced.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were staying around the corner from this little gelateria and I wish we had tried it earlier. The ice creams we had were superb. The Sicilian lemon was perfectly sweet and sour and contained little pieces of lemon zest. The vanilla was authentic and both were perfectly creamy and fresh. The cherry was tangy and also contained little morsels and the special ice cream of the day was particularly good with its fig and date flavours. These two were similarly creamy and authentic- tasting. We also bought a lovely gelateria T shirt for a bargain 8 Euros which is a very different souvenir from Venice. This gelateria is not to be missed.
