Great ice cream, with brilliant choice of flavours. Favourite is stracciatella - good location to eat on a sunny day, overlooking the canal and Gondola stop.

My wife and I live to sample gelato wherever we travel and this place was mediocre at best. We went here based on the great reviews and were disappointed on the first visit. We went back again just to be sure and we're disappointed again....More

My daughter and I love La Mela Verde! The ice cream is made from real fruit and prepared fresh every day. It is absolutely delicioius! A visit to La Mela Verde is highly recommended, a must for anyone who loves ice cream

My GELATO is made daily with fresh high-quality ingredients like milk, fresh fruit, pistachios from Sicily, Piedmont hazelnuts IGP, vanilla bourbon and the best cocoa blends for a fantastic dark chocolate. 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 ;)
