So many gelato shops in Venice give very small amounts for very large $$$$$. Mela Verde gives you big scoops of fantastic, creamy gelato. Simply the best in Venice!

Best ice cream and milk shakes we tasted in Venice. Flavours changed on a a daily basis. Look out for pink grapefruit, coconut, chocolate and melon flavours. Reasonably priced as well.

Tried the lime basil and grapefruit flavours. Both were good and there were fruit bits, albeit a little too sweet. Portion was very large.

delicious ice cream! a small place a bit outside of the hectic San Marco square; perfect after a dinner and some walk in the small streets and crossing several of the 400 brdiges of Venice downtown..

Went here because of reviews. Have been in Milan, Bellagio and other Lake Como towns. This was the worst gelato. Tasted artificial. True portion size was generous. I am hoping this is not an indication of gelato quality in Venice!!

We spent3 weeks travelling around Italy and no other Ice cream came close! Lovely little shop with investing flavours. The pistachio was creamy and delicious and the chocolate fondant was dark, rich and tempting. Very reasonable price and generous portions! 5*. Would seek this out straight away when returning to Venice.

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

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.
