Ciao Gelato offers a relaxed spot for coffee (free refills all day), and yummy gelato served by very friendly behind the counter people who make you feel welcome in this lovely town. A small cup of gelato gets you two generous scoops for the price...More

They serve the best gelato we've ever had! So smooth and creamy. Everything is fresh made everyday. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. They also have coffee and specials everyday for those that like something sweet with their coffee.

We stop by here often when we visit Venice. We've never had a flavor that we didn't say was the best one ever! Smooth and very creamy with large servings even in the regular size. Many interesting flavors. Enjoy!

Yummy gelato! A bit pricey, but they do have a punch card...so we are earning our way to a free cone with each visit! Outdoor seating is fun for people-watching and cone-licking!

My title says it all...everything is freshly made everyday and the stracialtella is the best I've ever had! Staff is very friendly and customer centric; and they have music sometimes too...save room for Ciao Gelato dessert if you are out on the town in Venice.

Only gelato place on east Venice Blvd. in the village area. My niece describes it as the best gelato she has ever tasted.

Banana Cream Gelato!!! My favourite of all time. The pistachio and chocolate was amazing. The selection was excellent and the service was wonderful. If you want a gelato this is THE place to go to.

OK so their selection of gelato is to die for; my wife's favorite - pistachio But I personally think you can't beat their $3.00 special, a cup of java with free refills and a selected warm pastry while sitting outside watching the snowbirds stroll by.

Wonderful gelato, including a sugar-free chocolate that was an unexpected bonus. And the service was outstanding!! Also had good-looking pastries, but hey, how much decadence can one stand?
