“Superb Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

This was one of the best gelaterias we ate at in Italy. There is not a huge array of flavors but, as Spencer Tracy said of Katherine Hepburn, "what there is is cherce." Particularly good was the grapefruit gelato, an explosion of clean, tart flavor in the mouth. Combine a scoop of that with a scoop of one of the creamy flavors and you will be in gelato heaven.

“Unmissable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The gelato here is amazing. They may not have the widest array of flavours available, but they are very reasonably priced for Venice and the taste is absolutely amazing. I'll definitely be back next time!

“This gelato - must have, never miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This place definitely has something special. Surely it is the way that these guys use their ingredients, the freshness simply leaps out at you.
The crowds, many driven by tripadvisor, are a testament to the taste and success.
The best gelato, we wished we could have had more

“"Heavenly gelato"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

This is an excellent gelateria on a pleasant fundamenta. I had fig and it was extremely flavorful. Not far down the street, you can look across at the Palazzo Pruilli, a beautiful gothic building.

“Best ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

After comparing many shops, this was by far the best! A bit out of the main tourist stream but easy to find.
