“The best gelato in Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We've been all over Italy and this is the best. It's that simple. You can see it when you just look at it in the freezer and the taste beats the view! Wow...

“Good gelato”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I went here because of all the exceptional reviews on TA, the gelato was nice but i've defenitely tried better ones both in Italy and abroad. What really disappointed me was the small selection of flavours, they were the usual ones, good but definetely average. According to all these good reviews i was expecting more.

“Strawberry-Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

All of the flavours are delcious. The ice cream tastes like real fresh fruits. I will point out that the dark chocolate and the Fragola/strawberry flavours are unbelievable good, and i have never tasted ice cream like this before. It's a wonderful taste-explosion of fruits and berries for your palate!

You will need a map to find this small ice bar. Tip: if you find the campo San Zaccaria, you are very close.

“Best gelato in Venice. Don't miss this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Visited Venice for 4 days and had to go back to this shop every day for daily scoops for their gelatos. My children cannot forget the taste of their beautiful flavors. Pistachio is in the pedestal - simply the best and divine! Equally fav to gourmet gelato we've tried in Verona - vanilla/safron/nuts. This will be our first stop next time we visit Venice again. We will definitely keep coming back!
