GROM is a small network of good ice cream stores, reasonable range of flavors and good locations. I missed the personal touch and the uniqueness that you can see in the smaller gelaterias.

Grom was recommended to us because all their ice creams are gluten-free and so are the cornets. If you're not gluten-free don't avoid it because you think that will make it bad. It is quite possibly the best ice cream I've ever eaten, with a broad range of flavours and styles, which include lollies for those who prefer it. It's... More

Stayed nearby, so tried several flavors. Good but not world class. The extra chocolate is so powerful that it was too much for me, a chocolate lover. Salted caramel was too blended, the flavors not well defined.

Every trip to Venice, I eat Grom gelato everyday. Grom is the best, don't bother with any other ice creameries. There are 5 Grom locations in town so take your price. If you find one be sure and pick up the little card by the cashier with all the other locations across town.

Kids love gelato (and hence Italia) and this is was a very good gelateria which didn't make you feel as a tourist despite this being Venice.

I know it's good quality gelato when they use covers instead of displaying the bright colors on the shop window. The bright colored gelatos are usually packed with coloring. This place tells you the main allergens in each flavor and they'd don't use artificial flavors, preservatives or coloring. It's not as light as Venchi, another gelato chain we found in... More

Great gelato. No matter what time of the day or night (within reason) Grom's is THE place for gelato in San Polo.

Grom is a chain of gelaterias that we first encountered in Florence. Their creations are all characterized by fresh natural ingredients and favors. The Grom we patronized in Venice is on the Strata Nuova, the main thoroughfare in Cannareggio. The gelato was as good as we remembered. If you have never tried real Italian gelato, made fresh with milk instead... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
