“Very Good but Venchi is better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

My kids and I took the Vaporetto up here seeking the best gelato in Venice. it was pretty good, but very light, almost too airy. I found the chocolate gelato at Venchi near s Marco to be the best of the 10 gelatos I tasted during 3 very hote days in Venice.

“Try the unusual flavors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Small gelateria for take-away gelato. Try the more unusual flavors, like ginger. They are fabulous (beats Grom). Go to the canal nearby and eat it there on the steps to the water.

“BEST Gelato in VENICE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

This is an absolute MUST for any foodie who loves GELATO! The owner who is personable and affable serves up the best all natural Gelato in Venice. He is fairly priced and the flavors are all to die for! This gelato is worth a trip into this neighborhood, even if your are not staying nearby.

“Utterly disappointed, marketing ploy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

We searched high and low for it, from the many reports we saw, there was no long queue mentioned by articles, the ice cream was edible, but was far from our expectations, you can get better ice cream from any other places. I would say its really a marketing ploy by the owner and his accomplices from the many good reviews you see on articles from other sites
