Super smooth and full of flavor. Some of the best gelato I've had in all of Italy. Really friendly staff and the flavors are great (hazelnut was my favorite).

Our hotel recommended this for gelato. What a gem! Just steps from the St. Stae vaporetto stop (keep walking straight after you disembark the vaporetto), this had excellent and reasonably priced gelato, and very friendly staff. We also thought the mascarpone and tiramisu were excellent....More

Delicious gelato here, plus cakes and crepes. We enjoyed 2 large scoops for 2.70 euro (medium size). Cones or cups offered. That was so good we topped it off with a chocolate/nut crepe. Great little place on quiet street.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
