The portions were large and left you fully satisfied...delicious and fresh! Only wish they had tiramisu. The chocolate hazelnut was divine.

We went here 4 times in a week, I would have gone daily if I could have! I also had the espresso shot over espresso gelato, thought I died and went to heaven.

We stopped in after dinner after walking around downtown Venice. The gelato is excellent. They sell it in three sizes. The larger the size, the more flavors you can add to a serving. Very refreshing. I ordered the small Amaretto flavor and an Almond Joy that were delicious and sufficient. Samples were provided on request. Definitely worth the visit.

Ciao Gelato has many gelato's to taste and enjoy. Have to say I have been to Italy and these definitely compare to Gelato purchased in Italy. Enjoy a dinner in one of our many downtown restaurants then go to Ciao Gelato for your desert.

Every time we go to Venice we stop here for a scoop. Yesterday I had the peanut butter gelato and it was amazing . It's not busy this time of year so we had no problem getting a table outside...so nice and relaxing.

We went here in the evening for some gelato; had the peanut butter and then chocolate. They were both pretty good, not the best we've ever had but okay. The peanut butter was the better one. The people working that night were not very friendly. It was like we were bothering them by coming in. They made a point of... More

This place sells the best, creamy, home-made on site gelato! Willing to give you samples because they all look so good it's hard to choose. Well worth the price.
