Simply put, incredibly smooth and creamy gelato. Between my wife and I, we tried the stracciatella, sour cherry, pistachio and peach flavours. All amazing!

Great ice cream in the art of Venice. Small ice cream store with delicious flavors. Highly recommended if you are in Venice!

We spent 3 weeks in Italy and tasted a lot of gelato, this however we decided was the best. Great original flavours, green apple was divine. A truly artisan gelateria. A couple of doors down was a focaccia and pizza bar, this is owned by the same guy, I can't remember the name of it. It was great though perfect... More

We went here having read other trip advisor reviews. The girl serving was so rude and disinterested in helping anyone. Shame, as it is in a perfect location .

Went here twice while in Venice. It was so good the first time we had to go back! My favorite flavors were la mela verde, and grapefruit. Don't go too late or they may be out of certain flavors!

Don't be fooled by tourist trap gelateria's or chain stores. This is homemade, creamy, deliciousness! Best ice cream I've ever tasted. Ate as many scoops as I could. Tough to find, loved by locals. Absolute gem!

Whilst in Venice, I used tripadvisor to find a good gelato shop and one of the recommended places was La Mela Verde! What a find- the gelato is the best I have ever had. We loved it so much that we went back again! I tried the pistacchio and speculoos flavours which were lovely, second time round I think I... More

Delicious gelato with different flavors each day. In a city with spotty food, it's worth going out of your way for! I especially recommend the peanut/caramel.

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.
