While on our walking tour of Venice, our guide recommended we try the pistachio gelato at this establishment. We stopped at several gelaterias during our visit to Italy, and the pistachio at Gelateria lo Squero was our favorite. The price was reasonable, the size of the serving was generous, and the quality was excellent.

When in Venice, give this restaurant a try - I think you will be very happy you stopped!

Our recent trips to Italy have become more and more focused on finding the best Gelato. We find that even mediocre Gelato in Italy puts to shame the best that we can get at home in Oregon. With only a few days in Venice, we didn't have time to make an thorough investigation, but when we found this shop, our search was over. The gelato here was simply marvelous in every respect. For me, nocciola is the indicator species and at this shop it was richly flavorful with perfect texture. Highly recommended!

This is consistently good. Fragola and pistachio are always tasty. You can't go wrong with this place--great wine and cicchetti next door, too.

After reading the reviews here we checked out gelato lo squero our first day in Venice. The cups were not filled like most places do, gaps and not packed down well do portion was smaller. Quality was average. Check out Gelato Fantasy for large portions and good quality.

I lived in Venice a few years ago, and after much trial and error, I am confident that this is the best gelato in Venice. My favorite flavors are nocciola (hazlenut), straciatella (chocolate chip), and pistachio. It is in a more secluded, authentic Venetian neighborhood. Make sure you notice the gondola repair shop across the canal!
