On a return visit to Venice (last time was in October) we were looking forward to coming here again. Just as we remembered, lovely ice cream and friendly service.

Friendly, family run gelateria just a 2min walk from the main canal. Great range of flavours, creamy ice cream and generous portions. I particularly recommend the cinnamon one-yum!

Apricot gelato was magnificent. Got the pistachio and asked for a good one to pair with: recommendation: chocolate, sour cherry, hazelnut. Perfect pairing. Excellent service. After cichetti beside this place: save room and come here.

All the colors, all the flavors and not TOO fluffy. Our food market walking guide told us if the gelato is too fluffy its full of air. Gelato squero is just right and easy. You can take you gelato and stand alongside the canal overlooking...More

This is probably the best ice cream I've ever tasted. Their home made pistachio is the real deal. Also very friendly staff. Thank you!

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
