Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Loved it! I had the pistacchio and the ‘doge’ flavour, the pistacchio was some of the best I ever had. The special flavour just wasn’t my cup of tea, but still very good quality. Happy!

We tried frutta di bosco & dolce il doge flavours. Both were absolutely excellent, probably the best gelato we had while staying in Venice. There is a lovely piazza nearby where we went to sit and enjoy the gelato. We were pleased to see a...notice saying the gelaterie was donating a percentage of profits to Ukrainian children. The gelato was reasonably priced.More

20 years ago you could find these genuine Icecream-shops all over, but nowadays they are getting rare. Gelateria Il Doge is one of those who I imagine still uses real ingredients. I don't know for sure, but I pass every day, and now and then...I stop, to chat for a bit, and get my ice cream. It's always a true and fresh feeling. Like eating something homemade, something someone has put their heart into. I recommend them enough.More

We went twice in two days- price, taste and service all excellent. You must try the Crema da Doge it is absolutely incredible- so many tastes in one scoop! I made sure I had that both times, the second time I also had a tiramisu...mousse that was like nothing I've ever tried before too. Highly recommended.More

I tried this gelateria (the Campo San Margherita location) on a recent trip to Venice (August 2020). They served the best gelato that I had on this trip to Italy. Despite the very Venetian name, they also take inspiration from Sicilian flavours. One of the...scoops I had was Cioccolato di Modica, an intense, bittersweet dark chocolate similar to the distinctive grainy chocolates produced in the Sicilian Baroque town of Modica. The other scoop I had was their signature Crema del Doge, which has the perfect blend of refreshing orange and dark chocolate. Both flavours I tried are highly recommended and I would have loved to have sampled the dozen other options on offer. The figurative cherry on top was friendly service from the man behind the counter.More

Deceptively far from Doge's Palace, we walked very far to get here on a hot day, and at only €1.50 per scoop, spent much of it returning for seconds. Possibly the nicest ice-cream I've ever had, a must for anyone here on a hot Venetian...day.More

We LOVE the gelato from here! Lots of choice- the chocolate is the best we've ever tasted anywhere! Whenever my husband said he'd just nip to the supermarket I knew he'd have a sneaky gelato on the way back.....and who could blame him?
