You've gotta try this! The gelato here is so smooth, creamy and flavorful! I had the Limone...be warned...this is tart! Just like it's supposed to be. A rare treat to find lemon this good! My wife had the chocolate/orange and the peanut butter. So good! Service was topnotch and everyone was very friendly. We will be sure to return again...soon!

We return to Ciao Gelato everytime we visit Venice, FL. The flavors are outstanding, and the owners are so delightful. They brought out a cup of their new doggie gelato for our dog Bitsy Bella. She loved it so much she tried to eat the cup when it was gone! She gives it four paws up!! A must visit!!!

I've tried Gelato in Europe and this is definitely not the quality you would find there. It seems like every time we have been there it was new owners, new management, new employees, new recipes... Not very consistent and definitely not very tasty!!

Thank you for your comment regarding your dissatisfaction with the consistency of our Gelato. Not sure what specifically you were not very impressed with: the new owners, new employees, new managers, new recipes? We took ownership in December, 2011 & have had very good responses from our customers regarding the quality of our Gelato and Sorbet as you can see in the previous reviews. Our staff has been in place for over seven months and they are extremely professional, courteous and knowledgeable regarding their product. Ciao.

Quite possibly the best scoop of gelato you Will ever eat. The facility is very clean. The employees are extremely friendly. I highly recommend you try this if you're in the mood for a scoop of gelato on a hot day.
