“Go! Now! Do it!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

K, so I preface this by saying I didn't go to other gelaterias in Venice. BUT, why would you need to when this place exists?! First off, the prices are better than most everywhere (€1.30 for one scoop, €2 for two scoops), and the portions are WAY bigger than everywhere else. Not only that, the flavors were bursting in my mouth. A great example of their quality was the pistacchio - it was super delicious AND it was the tan color it should've been, not the artificially-colored green color of all the other places. My fav flavor was the blackberry yogurt, though - My. Freaking. Goodness! K, I'm stopping cuz I'm missing it. Just go!

“Very nice place to take a pause ”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

After a half day walking, we sat down for a short break with aperol spritz, it was delicious.
I think we stad a little over 1 hour enjoying our drink en watching the people go by.
We will definately go back later on this week.

“very rude”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The quality of food, generally panini, is below average and the staff is very rude.
The only strenght is the wide number of tables in one of the best campi in Venice. despite this, avoid it.

“A good corner of the square”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

A really great place just to hang out and watch people come and go on Campo San Stefano. Enjoy a coffee or a fantastic ice cream while you're there. Lovely hot chocolate as well. They also serve food but not on a restaurant scale. Toasted sandwiches, some pasta, antipasti and cakes, all good quality. We sat there for about two hours one Sunday just drinking coffee, prosecco and munching on a few snacks. That's how to enjoy Venice. No need to rush.

“Excellent Location”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Given the excellent location in one of the most popular squares in Venice it is easy to see how this place has become famous. The Gelati itself is OK nothing extra ordinary but very edible on a hot day and good value too at only 2euros a shot. The service is pretty good as well.
