Small shop but very delicious ice cream. And a honorable mention to the pistachio flavor which is incredible.

Top Gelato and Icecream...but then we never found a bad one in Venice. Good prices and great selections though fellow serving could have been more polite.

It is 100% natural watermelon ice cream with seeds! Worthy to make a try. Other flavor would also be good

Lovely little ice cream shop just off Zattere near the last gondola workshop in the city. Guy serving was very friendly, ice creams were delicious and very reasonably priced.

Took me and my friend a while to find the place, to be surprised by a very rude reception. Poor selection and place did not look very hygienic. Avoid!

We would always get lost in Venice and end up in front of this shop. The gelato is amazing, and the staff are really friendly.

My wife and I stumbled on this place while lost in Venice. The first time we were there we were taken aback by how curt the guy behind the counter was with us, despite how overly friendly he was with the two people before us....More

Ridicolous, you are talking about homophobia in a review of an ice cream shop. Congrats

We always stop here for a gelato when walking around the Dorsodoro. It's just across the canal from the gondola building/repair shop in a quiet area.

Stopping by Squero reminded me that I have a gelato addiction- only the real Italian will do. The pistachio and chocolate were both perfect. Prices reasonablr, and not as overrun with tourists as the trendiest place down the canal.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
