“Amazing gelato which stood out in a country full of gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We found gelato fantasy on tripadvisor and decided to check it out since it was so highly rated and it was worth looking for in the maze of lanes around San Marco. The kitkat and nutella gelato were to die for and we actually went back the next day just to have some more. Now that's not a small feat considering that we'd already been to Rome, Positano and Florence and had two gelato a day and had never returned to the same spot twice.. This one was that good! Also, there is a small takeaway pizza place called happy pizza just a few doors down which was amazing.. we grabbed some brushetta and calzone with some bellini and stood at the tables happily guzzling before topping it off with execeptional ice cream from fantasy.. bliss! :)

“Quality Italian Gelato near St Mark's Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic little gelateria and such a great find. The fruit flavours are ok, chocolate and vanilla are good, the nut flavours (pistachio and nocciola) were simply sublime. Some of the best gelato I've had anywhere, appropriate portions, and decent value for the area at €2.50 for 2 scoops.

“Brilliant true Italian gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Visited here twice, hunted it down to find it again!
Had a good choice of dairy free icecream/ gelato, including a very good dark chocolate one!
Decent prices: ?1.50 for 1 scoop or ?2.50 for 2 scoops.
Highly recommended, especially the strawberry gelato!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We visited Gelato Fantasy after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and having got our fingers burned at Boutique del Gelato, which had let down its "best in Venice" billing.

We were not disappointed - the gelato was excellent, a good range of delicious flavours including Jaffa Cake and Kit-Kat, both of which my wife adventurously went for. I had cherry, fruits of the forest and chocolate, which was amazing - and portions were generous and decently-priced. The best gelato we had in Venice, give it a try.
