2 scoops of disaronno ameretto and hazelnut were simply delicious for €3. Very popular place. Worth a visit for sure.

We tried different places and La Mela Verde is the best one, good price and really delicious! You will pay chip for a big scoop. Pistachio is popular but Hazelnut and Lemon also are amazing.

Very good ice cream, good selection of flavours. Portions were very generous. It was recommended by a local to us as the best gelato in Venice - in our opinion definitely one of the best we tried here

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

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 ;)
