“We will always remember this gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Tripadvisor did not disappoint us here. With so many gelato shops in Venice, it is very easy to just stop in any and buy a scoop or two. That would be your mistake. You must make an effort to find Gelato Fantasy. It's very close to St Marco Square. The gelato here will go down as our most memorable scoop of gelato EVER. It is soft and flavorful. For the gelato enthusiasts, the color is subtle and not artificial. There is sometimes a small line and I did overhear a local telling a tourist "it's the best". Don't settle for any gelato, go to Gelato Fantasy! You will not regret it. E1.50 a scoop, E2.50 for two scoops and so on.....

“Only gelato place to go in Venice. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Excellent gelato. Hazelnut. Pistacchio. Kit kat flavors were great. We stopped here twice during our 2 days in Venice. It was on par with the the world champion gelateria from San Gimignano.
To find it from St Mark's square. Walking away from the basilica and into the square. Stay on your right. Turn right when you come to the first gelato place after the orchestra. Keep going down that street till you see it on your right. Just past Happy Pizza, which is also great.

“Fly me to the moon with Gelato Fantasy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

All the calories are worth it! Soft, creamy textured gelato comes in a fistful of flavours to choose from. I had meringue and caramel which was sugar overdose, but the smart hubs had pistachio, which was just nice. Worth the walk and search.

“Delicious”

One of the better gelato shops that we have found during our trip in Italy. Generous serves and more of the tradtitional flavours.
