Best gelato, by far, of out Italy trip!!! The cherry gelato is to die for. Not expensive at all and well worth it -- right off the waterfront a few minutes in.

I went to this gelateria with my son on a very hot, sunny day and this gelato was refreshing to us both. The flavours were very strong and the texture was very smooth and fluffy. I highly recommend this place to anyone.

This place was really near our hotel and we were so glad because we loved it. We came here more than once; everything we had was great. I loved the hazelnut flavor.

We visited this place every day (more than once). The cream and cherry flavour is worth a try!! Would definitely recommend and is very reasonable with prices compared to other gelato shops in the area.

We found this place on trip advisor and sought it out! The gelato was amazing, rich, smooth and creamy! I had to have three scoops as I couldn't choose! At only €4 for three scoops in such a good location it's a bargain! We're going back there tonight for dessert as its open till 11pm.

This small store is very near to the Sacra Arcidiocesi Ortodossa d'Italia e Malta, so it is very easy to find it. The shop assistant is very nice. If you don't know which flavour to choose, just follow his recommendation.

Really lovely flavours and very generous scoops. The melon is particularly nice and they're all super smooth

I just stumble upon this place, I'm glad I went in and try it. It was the best dark chocolate gelato I ever had.

The ice cream was delicious and as our hotel was close we visited multiple times and they had new random tastes to try alongside the 'traditional' ones. Great for the whole family and they do amazing crepes as well!

Not a whole lot of choice, because it is made artisanal. But the flavours they have, are very good! We tasted 4 of them :-). Sometimes a little line to wait, but it is worth it!

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
