“Great gelato in off-the-beaten-path spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

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.

“A good pit stop on a hot day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

If it's a hot day and you're walking through the streets in Santa Croce on route to the Rialto bridge, stop off here. We sat down (not many seats to eat in) and had the advertised tasty cherry and chocolate ice creams in glass dishes. Interesting to watch them being made up too. Also on the way from San Stae vaporetto stop.

“Mmmmm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Lovely ice cream - super flavours. Just watch the price you are charged. A single cone was 1.5 euros. My friend had a double at 2,5 euros and because I followed her I was charged the same, just for a single (my fault as I didn't check my change until I had left)

“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.
