I have eaten the most delicious gelato in this store in Italy. You can not find this taste in Rome or Florence. Shouldnt miss that!

“Overpriced and rude”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

The server was rude, the scoops tiny (some not even a full scoop) and the selection was poor (8 flavors at most). We decided to give it a try anyways, but we really were disappointed. Around the next corner we came upon Gelatoteca Suso where we had a second go at a satisfactory gelato experience. This time we were not let down - Gelatoteca had a wide selection of flavors: Both traditional ones like pistachio and vanilla, but also more exotic ones like rich dark chocolate (like the night) and crema di doge. Do yourself a favor and go to Gelatoteca Susan instead of La Boutique del Gelato - you really won't regret it!

“gelato”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Just another 'Gelato to me perhaps the gelato took my attention more than the actual surroundings.

“Go.Now.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

This is hands down the best gelato in Venice, if not all of Italy, and I've had a lot of gelato. It's a bit off the beaten path but you know it's a legit place because there are only locals and italian tourists around, no americans.

They only have about 10 different flavors because their gelato is handmade but they have all of the staples (nocciola, cioccolato, stracciatella and even fragola when strawberries are in season). Most importantly, their flavors are subtle and authentic, the texture is creamy, and the portions are heaping. Really friendly employees too.

1,50€ for one scoop, 1€ per each additional scoop

Open till 10:30pm

Go once, if not twice a day

“Mascarpone...Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

This was my first gelato stop in Venice so my anticipation was high. I ordered the mascarpone and was not impressed. The gelato was really light and had a consistency more of whipped cream than of ice cream. It wasn't even that cold. Maybe I just made a poor selection.
