“Excellent Gelato”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stop here often, and bring most of our many visitors here. The gelato is never disappointing. Some flavors are richer and more flavorful than others, but they are all good. We like the staff, especially Brittany, who is very friendly and fun to chat with. We also love when Wanda sings there on Thursday evenings. Lovely voice and very classy lady.

“Creamy gelato with interesting flavors”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

A bit on the expensive side but worth it. Wonderful, high quality, creamy, rich gelato. Unique flavors. Conveniently on main street Venice.

Oh My God! The gelato is so good it should be illegal! They have an espresso with your choice of gelato- incredible.

“Ciao has arrived in Siesta!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

As a delicious lock to hit in Venice we were delighted to stumble upon the Ciao Gelato in Siesta Key. The young man promoting the place out front was cordial, welcoming, and enthusiastic. We entered and even though they were due to close in 15 minutes, the young girl inside greeted us with a welcoming smile and chatted it up with us and offered samples. She even crammed 2 different flavors for us in the smallest size. Sweet! I got the coconut and the espresso. Both were divine. I certainly look forward to returning to both the Siesta Key and Venice locations. Service and sweetness with a smile!

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

There are a number of ice cream shops in downtown Venice, but Ciao Gelato is by far the best! The gelato Is fresh, delicious, made on the premises - and the choices are different every day. They like to experiment and are always trying out new flavour combinations. They are always happy to let you sample flavours before you commit.

Be warned, though, it is very moreish!
