“Our favorite gelateria in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

OK, in all fairness we only tried 3 or 4 places, but this was our favorite. We loved the creaminess of it. Try the Doge flavor! Very unique.

“Heavenly Tiramisu Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

This is our fourth trip to Venezia and Il Doge never disappoints. Get the Caffe and Tiramisu (so incredibly creamy it's like Mousse) together...Sweet Maria it's the best!! The Pistachio, Strawberry and Chocolate are also favorites. Friendly staff, and a beautiful Campo to stroll around while you eat these little treasures.

“It's pretty good but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Went to Il Doge for gelato yesterday afternoon. The gelato is very creamy and on the heavier side. I think its definitely better than Boutique Del Gelato but I prefer the gelato at Grom in Venice. Grom is lighter and more refreshing and flavorful.

“One of the best places to get gelato for a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We stumbled upon this gelateria after wandering around in our first night in Venice. It was our first official sample of the famous Italian gelato, and it was a success! Very creamy and good. I sampled something similar to Italian Wedding Cake and Sam opted for the amaretto and dark cherry. I highly recommend this place. It was so good we ended up going back two more times since it was so close to our hotel! Super affordable! $
