Every single product is choose and selected to offer the best high-quality GELATO, this is my prerogative and the secret of my success. Enjoy it ;)

“Great but small scoops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

This place has great gelato, I had four scoops. The scoops are very small, but the gelato is really good. I liked the Spritz, loved lemon and red grapefruit. The best was the pistaccio, best pistaccio I have ever had! Would definately go back, even though the four scoops was like two scoops at other places...

“Scream for this ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

There is lots of ice cream to be had in Venice, much of it is delicious but this place is special. Interesting flavours which vary daily, quality, natural and fresh ingredients. Prices compare with most in Venice, but the product and flavours excel. Make sure you try it BUT be warned - flavours run out and opening hours aren't as late as some other ice cream shops(11-8), so don't leave it too late in the day!

“Hard to find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I tried to find this gelateria an entire day, but just couldn't locate Fondamenta de L'Osmarin on the map. In the end, it just came up, out of nowhere, perfect timing! :) Unfortunately, I think the offer was not diverse enough! They didn't have yogurt, my favorite, and the liquorice flavor was...just bad! Of course, gelato still remains my love, maybe I just made the wrong choices...
Didn't try the crepe filled with gelato, I think I would have died from all the sugar :))
