From what I can tell, this gelateria is only on your way if you are going to or from the San Stae vaporetto shop. But the locals must keep it in business, because it's been there for a number of years. I love the gelato there, and if I'm in that part of Santa Croce, I always make it a point to stop in for some. My favorite is a specialty called Venexiana, which includes candied orange and chocolate cream.
