“This gelato - must have, never miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This place definitely has something special. Surely it is the way that these guys use their ingredients, the freshness simply leaps out at you.
The crowds, many driven by tripadvisor, are a testament to the taste and success.
The best gelato, we wished we could have had more

“"Heavenly gelato"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

This is an excellent gelateria on a pleasant fundamenta. I had fig and it was extremely flavorful. Not far down the street, you can look across at the Palazzo Pruilli, a beautiful gothic building.

“Best ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

After comparing many shops, this was by far the best! A bit out of the main tourist stream but easy to find.

“Gorgeous gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I agree with all of the reviews so far! La Mela Verde has the best gelato in Venice! I had plain old vanilla but it was so creamy and refreshing. I look forward to returning to La Mela Verde next time I'm in Venice!

“Best gelato in Venezia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

While La Mela Verde is not the best gelato in Italy, it certainly stands a head above the rest in Venezia! The pistacchios are imported from Sicily, the nocciole from Piemonte, and it's all made the same day it's consumed. The flavors and textures are expertly mixed and served in decent quantities.
