The best home made gelato west of Italy ....here on Venice Island.... Being a purist I like coconut gelato but in this heat sorbet brings tears to my eyes - mango is an acquired but addictive flavour. Also pistachio gelato is very popular when surveying those in line. I am waiting for blood orange (hint), fresh peach and also some... More

This place is awesome! Can't say enough goods things about the gelato...plenty of flavors to choose from. When I first saw the size of a grande cup, I didn't think we'd get much. However, they fill that cup to overflowing with up to 3 flavors. They also have a few bakery options to try (which we did not), but it... More

Had their chocolate which had little pieces of chocolate in it and tried the tartuffo. The chocolate is definitely better.

Worth every penny you spend. Love the nights they play music. Enjoy you get to sample as many as you like before you buy and the flavor so change frequently.

Stopped in for dessert after having a late lunch down the street. Friendly staff member, possibly the owner. Varied rich flavors. The Key Lime Pie was especially good. Definitely true to the Italian art form. Will definitely return next time I m in Siesta !

We went in and brought some Ice cream and coffee and watched the world go buy from the safety of reasonable AC that didn't freeze is to death. The young lady in there was very nice and was happy and friendly. We wrote some post cards out at the table and watched some preppies wander about. We never felt rushed... More
