“Best gelato in Venice”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

Well, at least the best gelato that we tried. The place was packed with college students and the owner was friendly and helpful. The gelato is fabulous and it's a fun area, non-touristy area to walk around.

“The try N° 1 of ice-cream in Venice”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

A bit hidden and not on the tourist-mainstream , fantastic place to meet people sitting outside of the wall following the canal looking at the last place where gondole are crafted

“angelina seems to tnhink so . . .”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

our free guide told us that this was one of the better gelaterias in venice.
the pistachio is a work of art!
lo and behold, there's a picture of angelina and brad heading back to their boat with this gelato in their hands!
nice to know i can afford what they eat!
have to add, the prices are the most economical in the whole of venice.

“This is a gelateria, NOT a restaurant”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Trip Advisor has a shortcoming in that it categorizes everything where one would eat something as a Restaurant. This gelato store sells only gelato and it is the best I have ever eaten. Especially the fruit flavoured gelati and especially the pear, and grapefruit (pamplemo)! Apparently the Jolie/Pitt family thought so as well as their pictures are on the wall, and Simon the owner loves to talk about their visits. Apparently it is more expensive than some other places, and more so than the big European chain, Grom. It definitely was worth it.
My friend has some almost every day.

“Sooo Good!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Came across this place while wandering around looking for the Gondola boatyard- were we ever glad we did!
The gelato here was the best we had eaten in Venice and the prices very reasonable.
