“So nice we went twice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Got a tip from the guidebook, as other TripAdvisers have mentioned, make sure you go to the right place! The gelato is very good, a lot of flavors to choose from. The sorbets looked a bit watery and old so I would avoid those. Portion sizes aren't the biggest, get 2 scoops! They also have gluten free cones.

“Good, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

This was very hard to find as the trip advisor marker was in the wrong place, really wrong! Ensure you know where Campo Santa margarita is before you set off.
The ice cream was good, not excellent. Some flavours were too subtle.

“As you'd expect, quality gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Not too much to say, simply good quality gelato at reasonable prices.

Had gelato in a few places in Venice and this was as good as any.

“Our favorite gelato in Dorsoduro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

On a recent weeklong trip to Venice, we stayed right down the street from Il Doge and made it a nightly ritual to get our gelato there. Between the 4 of us we must have tried 20 different flavors and we were never disappointed. Much better than Grom. We also noticed that they regularly gave our 11 year old daughter a bigger scoop than the rest of us...she didn't complain!

“Great Gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Came across this gelato stand on the back to the hotel from San Marco. It was awesome!!! I had hazelnut and stracciatella. My fiancé had caramel and chocolate. It was great. The price wasn't terrible €2.5 for 2 scoops and€3.5 for 3 scoops.
